Northwest ISD Athletic Department
Susan Elza, Executive Director of Athletics
The NISD athletics programs serve as a functioning part of the school system and offer opportunities to represent Northwest Independent School District. Participation in athletics assists in helping students develop positive relationships, increase academic success, and build good citizenship qualities.
Athletics is offered at all five middle schools, Byron Nelson High School, and Northwest High School. Sports offered include football, volleyball, basketball, cross country, tennis, wrestling, swim/dive, soccer, softball, baseball, golf, track, and athletic training.
Northwest works to ensure that the district is comparable to other districts with the number of teacher/coaches, types of facilities, and programs offered. The goal is to maintain quality programs that preserve high expectations of students and staff.
The NISD goal for athletics is to provide the tools necessary for student athletes to achieve academic success, improve leadership capabilities, exhibit good citizenship qualities, and learn the importance of maintaining team-minded concepts.
