In this time of emotional turmoil in our nation, the Big North Conference is committed to the ideals of Education based Interscholastic Athletics which emphasizes the importance of character and respect for each other.  These traits have never been more important as our country struggles with social injustice, fear and anger.  The coaches, student-athletes and administrators that make up our conference strive to lead by example in cultivating a culture of understanding and equality amongst our teams, schools and in our communities.
