Recently, twelve local students aged 14-16, had the chance to showcase what they learned during a 6-week Summer Boatbuilding Program, a collaborative effort put on by the Rhode Island Marine Trades Association (RIMTA) and the Newport Area Career & Technical Center (NACTC).
Next week, Newport Area Career and Tech student Chris Kamps will head to Louisville, Kentucky to compete in the 51st annual SkillsUSA National Championship where he will represent Rhode Island in the Technical Computer Applications contest.
The Volvo Ocean Race fleet has sailed away, leaving in its wake thousands of local youth with fresh exposure to the excitement of boating. A new boatbuilding program that launches this summer in Newport will give those young people who want to further their interest an opportunity to explore the marine trades as a potential career path.
The Newport Area Career and Technical Center (NACTC) kicks-off an informational campaign designed to inform the public about the different types of educational opportunities that are available to high school students and highlight the fact that all students in Newport and the surrounding districts have the right to attend NACTC at no additional cost to families.

SIGN-UPS vs REGISTRATION
If your child signed-up with a coach because they have an interest in trying out for a team, wonderful! However, please understand that was for the coach to gauge interest in the program and to have a way of communicating with your child. This did not register them for the team! All student-athletes have to be registered through FamilyID (http://www.npsri.net/Page/2925 ) in order to begin practicing and be issued equipment, no exceptions! The registration for all fall sports has been open since the final week of school in June and will continue to be all summer long 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. When registering it is helpful to have your child’s medical insurance and date of your child most recent physical exam on hand. If you experience any technical issues with the registration process please contact FamilyID 888-800-5583 for technical assistance.
