North Layton does not have a football, baseball, or soccer team. The Davis School District implemented a policy in the 1970s stating that no junior high or middle schools in the district are allowed to have football, soccer, or baseball teams due to the physical injury risk. Once students reach the 9th grade they are registered at Layton High School, Northridge High School or Clearfield High School and may participate in the aforementioned sports, but still attend classes in the North Layton Jr. High buildings
In the 2001 wrestling season the Longhorn boys wrestling were both Davis District Champions and Northend champions. Led by Coach Tim Porter.
The school has many extra-curricular activities that are not physical sports. These activities include Student Government, National Junior Honor Society, National Academic League, Science Olympiad, MESA, School Musicals, Advanced Choir, Jazz Band and Cheerleading
