High School Trainings



NCS4 has teamed up with the Mississippi High School Activities Association (MHSAA), along with the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) and the National Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association (NIAAA) to develop a national risk management training and assessment program for interscholastic athletics and after-school activities.

The goal of the national risk management training and assessment is to build safer, more secure, and resilient high school interscholastic athletics and after-school activities safety and security programs. 


NCS4 has completed the final pilots of the Risk Management for Interscholastic Athletics and After-School Activities course. Over 60 school districts located across Mississippi, Indiana and Connecticut participated in the workshop. The target audience for the course consisted of superintendents, principals, athletic directors and resource officers. Participants assisted NCS4 in ensuring the curriculum addresses a multitude of major concerns and brings value to K-12 safety and security programs. Currently, NCS4 is making the final curriculum modifications to the course, based on feedback and lessons learned, and plan to launch the training at the beginning of 2015.
