Welcome to New London High School Athletics!


BDJMS 8th grade students and families.

I hope each of you are healthy and safe. My name is Phil Orbe and I am the new Athletic Director for New London Public Schools. The purpose of this correspondence to connect with those interested in participating in athletics next school year at NLHS.  As the 2019-2020 school year ends, preparations for next year’s athletic program are kicking into gear. We are all looking to forward to working with a new group of Whalers.

A few notes to be aware of:

  • Students attending the Marine Science Magnet in Groton and Three Rivers Middle College in Norwich are eligible to participate in athletics at NLHS. Students going to other magnet or private schools are not eligible.
  • Each prospective student-athlete is required to register for their desired sport. Student-athletes are not allowed to begin practice without having the following on file with the athletic director. We are currently working on implementing an online registration option. More information on this to follow. Forms to be filled out include:

o   Sports Participation Health Record (physical) – good for 13 months

o   Parent Permission & Emergency Medical Form & Athletic Responsibility Acknowledgment

o   Concussion Consent Form for Parents/Athletes

o   Sudden Cardiac Arrest Consent Form for Parents/Athletes

  • Due to COVID-19, the state’s governing body for high school athletics has permitted coaches to provide skill-based instruction virtually this summer.  This form of “coaching” runs from June 1st to August 13th. Conditioning, which does not include sport specific equipment and skills, is also allowed year round. If interested in joining either contact the sport specific head coach.
  • Official practice start dates are listed below. Due to COVID-19, the start dates for the fall season are subject to change.
