  • You must have a cumulative 2.0 grade point average from previous middle school years or previous semester whichever is greater.  Incoming 6th graders are already eligible for soccer and volleyball.

 

  • A student who reaches the age of 15 on or after September 1st will be ineligible for athletics at the middle school level.

 

  • There is only one girl’s team and one boys team for each sport:  Which means there will be a combination of 6th, 7th and 8th graders trying out for each team.  Both teams play on the same day, during the week at the same site.

 

  • Practices are usually every day and could be before or after school depending on the coach. 

 

  • There are no fees for being on the team other than providing the necessary safety equipment for your sport. (i.e. volleyball- knee pads, soccer-shin guards, etc.)
