New Trier Girls Volleyball donates $12,324.00 to Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
Volleyball Supports Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
In living out the New Trier motto: minds to inquiry, hearts to compassion, and lives to the service of humankind, the New Trier Girls Volleyball program selected the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation as their service project this season. They have a personal connection because co-captain MC Magner has two young cousins affected by CF. Through soliciting pledges and donations, every girl in the volleyball program participated in a Serv-a-thon. They raised $12,324.34 and presented the check at senior night to a representative from the CF foundation. (H. Hsieh) Pictured; Taylor Tashima, MC Magner

Girls Volleyball Advances to IHSA Final Four!
How do I become eligible to participate in a sport at New Trier?
Obtain a physical from your doctor. The Illinois High School Association and New Trier require a valid physical (or proof of a physical) to be on file with the Athletic Department. As of July 1, 2012, the IHSA allows a physical to be valid for 395 days from the date it was issued. If your physical expires during the course of a season, you will be required to obtain another physical before you are permitted to continue to practice or play.
For Ninth Grade Students entering New Trier: All First-year New Trier students are also required to submit a valid physical as part of their registration at New Trier. A record of those completed physicals is shared with the Athletic Department. First-year students who have completed and submitted their physical in this manner need only to sign the parent/guardian portion of the Athletic Physical and Parent Consent Form and submit that document to the Athletic Office.
Have your doctor or parent sign the New Trier Athletic Physical and Parent Consent Form (available on the main Athletic web Page/Select Forms). This form must be signed once per school year by the parents or legal guardians of every participant.
The form must be delivered to the Athletic Office at New Trier's Winnetka Campus (Room 214) or Northfield Campus (Room F111). If delivery of the completed form occurs more than one week in advance of your season, your name will be electronically added to your coach's list of eligible participants. If you deliver the document less than one week prior to the start of your season, you may be given a hard-copy "Permit to Participate" form to carry to your initial practice. No student will be permitted to take part in any aspect of a New Trier interscholastic sport without completion of the form.

"Tackle the Turf " NOW with the New Trier Booster Club
The New Trier Booster Club is tackling their campaign to raise $1,000,000 for the installation of synthetic turf surfaces to the Northfield stadium and the adjacent lighted practice fields. Synthetic turf allows the district to increase the use of the stadium from about 250 hours a year - all in the spring and fall - to more than 2,000 hours a year, with activities scheduled throughout the summer as well. Sports such as field hockey and lacrosse, historically not scheduled much in the stadium, have greater access. Kinetic Wellness classes, as well as Intramural sports, are using the stadium for the first time. Go to the Booster Club main web page to learn more about the Tackle the Turf campaign. Go New Trier Boosters! http://www.newtrier.k12.il.us/tackletheturf/
