Triton Regional High School (Runnemede, New Jersey) Earns Level 1 Status in NFHS School Honor Roll Program

 

INDIANAPOLIS, IN (October 5, 2021) – The National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) is pleased to announce that Triton Regional High School in Runnemede, New Jersey, has earned Level 1 status in the NFHS School Honor Roll.

The NFHS School Honor Roll is a national recognition program designed to promote professional development for high school coaches by completing specific online education courses through the NFHS Learning Center (www.NFHSLearn.com).

In earning Level 1 status, more than 90 percent of the coaches at Triton Regional High School completed the core course “Fundamentals of Coaching” along with three of the Learning Center’s most significant courses – “Concussion in Sports,” “Sudden Cardiac Arrest” and “Protecting Students from Abuse.”

“We want to congratulate the coaches and administration at Triton Regional High School for taking this significant step in prioritizing professional development,” said Dr. Karissa Niehoff, NFHS executive director. “These four courses will definitely help the coaches at Triton Regional High School to handle the daily challenges in high school sports and should serve as a challenge for other schools to follow their example.”

"We are excited for and proud of our coaches in their continued dedication to our student-athletes here at Triton,” said Keith Williams, vice-principal for athletics, music, physical education and health at Triton Regional High School. “In conjunction with the NFHS Learn courses, our coaches have demonstrated a willingness to build their coaching skills and knowledge in pursuit of providing the safest environment for our student-athletes. We look forward to continuing our partnership with NFHS Learn in the future."

As a physical sign of completing Level 1 certification, Triton Regional High School will receive a large display banner for its school gymnasium to commemorate its accomplishments and dedication to professional development and education-based activity programs.

Schools can earn Level 2 status (and a Level 2 banner) on the NFHS School Honor Roll when more than 90 percent of their coaches – excluding volunteer coaches – complete courses that pertain specifically to sports they coach, along with “First Aid, Health and  Safety,” “Heat Illness Prevention” and “Student Mental Health and Suicide Prevention.”

A Level 3 banner will be awarded for schools that reach 90-percent completion for the “Sportsmanship,” “Strength and Conditioning,” “Teaching and Modeling Behavior,” “Engaging Effectively with Parents” and “Bullying, Hazing, and Inappropriate Behaviors” courses.

“Earning the NFHS School Honor Roll banner is a symbol that the school and its coaches are committed to providing a great experience for young people, and it’s something that everyone can be proud of within their communities,” said Dan Schuster, NFHS Director of Educational Services.
