One of the most dynamic programs at NDV is school athletics. In addition to regularly scheduled physical education classes, students are given year-round opportunities to explore and develop their interests in such sports as basketball, soccer, and volleyball. Class teams are formed for each seasonal sport, with trained parents or alumni serving as coaches. Emphasis is given to team-building and skill development to ensure that school sports are a rewarding experience for all participants. NDV students enthusiastically participate in a school jog-a-thon, and each year concludes with a sports awards program in which every child is recognized for his/her participation and achievement.
Under the auspices of the Catholic Youth Organization(CYO), NDV students participate in a citywide cross-country event in the fall and a citywide track meet in the spring. The NDV community takes great pride in its gymnasium, the site of numerous school-hosted tournaments throughout the year. During the summer recess, NDV's Athletic Director hosts a sports camp on NDV's campus for interested students.
