The Hall of Fame is being organized as a way of maintaining the rich heritage and tradition of the successful athletic programs at NCC. In addition, it will serve as a means of recognizing, preserving, and honoring the athletes, teams, coaches, and individuals who made significant contributions to these athletic programs.
In order to maintain the integrity of the Hall of Fame, nominees must exemplify the highest standards of sportsmanship, ethical conduct, and moral character. All candidates will be judged on their significant and/or long term contributions to athletic endeavours. Candidates may be nominated as a player, a team, a coach, or contributor. Candidates may not nominate themselves or be nominated by direct family members. Previous nominations will be considered active for no more than ten years, at which time they will be placed as an inactive file. All entries must be submitted on the official NCC Athletic Hall of Fame Nomination Form by June 1. The nomination form shall be available through the Athletic Director’s office or via the school’s athletic website.
