Athletics

Our middle school attempts to accommodate the large number of students who wish to participate in athletic competitions against other schools. Sports, which can handle a large number of students, such as cross-country, wrestling, and track, are operated on a no-cut, no tryout basis so that all who wish to join may participate.

Since only a limited number of students can participate in certain sports such as boys basketball (5), girls basketball (5), volleyball (6), or soccer (11) at one time, a limited number of players are selected for these teams, through a try-out process.

To help accommodate more students, a seventh grade team and an eighth grade team are offered for boys basketball, girls basketball, and volleyball.

Our middle school offers a variety, of interscholastic sports throughout the school year for students in seventh and eighth grade.

In order to participate in interscholastic athletics, students must maintain academic eligibility as outlined in Section Four of this handbook. This requirement is maintained so that parents and teachers are assured that involvement in interscholastic athletics will not interfere with our students' academic performance which, as noted earlier, is the primary purpose for their schooling.

Students may participate in one interscholastic sport during each season.

To ensure safety, students must have a completed, current/valid physical on file in the school office, complete and return an insurance waiver form to the coach before participating in an open gym, try-out, practice, or game for any interscholastic sports team at our middle school. Physicals expire 395 days after the date on that physical. No exceptions!

NEW THIS YEAR: All students interested in trying out or participating in any type of sports activiity MUST complete a "Student, Parent/Guardian Agreement to Participate Form.   This form serves as a type of permission slip/waiver.  Please click on the link below to print it out, sign it, and submit it to the office.  If you and your student signed it at the beginning of the year, there is no need to fill it out again.

Students must be picked up from practices and games within a reasonable amount of time. Continued delays may result in warnings, limited participation in practices/contest, or in serious cases, removal from the team.
