Motivational Books for NPHS Student Athletes

NPHS Student Athletes,

As we continue to re-purpose the NPHS Athletics website, we have put together book titles that can help you get through these tough times and maintain your .   There are links to inspirational stories, autobiographies, the athlete mindset, and self help books that NPHS coaches & administrators, as well as sports professionals have recommended as good reads.  As more NPHS coaches jump on board, we will continue to add titles, so please come back to this page (you will be able to find it in the main menu under MORE, section 1A – Articles).  If you know a title in this genre that you know other students will enjoy, please email me at


Books are listed alphabetically by title.  Just click on any that look interesting to you to find out more information.  All titles are linked to Amazon Smile to benefit NPHS Scholarship Foundation, but get your hands on as many of these titles as you can whichever way you can.  Don’t forget, if you have a Ventura or Los Angeles County Library Card, you can download the OverDrive app and find some of these titles digitally for free.
