NCS Scholar Athlete Award Application

North Coast Section (NCS) Scholastic Awards


CIF/NCS member schools are proud to honor students who excel in both their studies and their athletic pursuits. Scholar awards are available to both teams and individuals. 


Starting in the fall of 2021, IHS Boosters are helping to administer these awards for Irvington athletes by submitting applications to NCS and printing certificates. Certificates are given to coaches to distribute to their team members. 


Grades are provided from the school and are calculated on a 4.0 scale with A=4, B=3, C=2, D=1, F=0 (unweighted). Fall sports awards are based on 1st quarter grades, winter sports on 1st semester grades, and spring sports on 3rd quarter grades.
