Middle School Sports

We believe that the opportunity to participate in sports is an important part of the total educational experience. Students have the chance to develop a positive self-concept and enjoy a sense of belonging to a team. Winning and losing is part of every person’s life. Participation in sports teaches young people how to win and lose graciously and how to practice good sportsmanship.

Sports Programs

We offer the following seasonal sports for students in 7th and 8th grades:

  • Fall: Boys basketball, cross country (6th grade also), football, volleyball 
  • Winter: Boys basketball (practice begins on Tuesday, October 18), girls basketball, wrestling (6th grade also)
  • Spring: Brainbowl, track and field

Participation Fees

We assess a $60 per sport/activity fee with a family maximum of $480 for the school year. Please pay sport/activity fees when the sport occurs (fall sports in the fall, spring sports in the spring), prior to the first event. The fee is non-refundable after the first competition. 

If a student participates in more than one sport/activity in the same season, the student’s family is responsible for paying the participation fee for each.

Concessions

We offer concessions at many of our middle school home sporting events. We encourage parents of our athletes to volunteer at least once during the season. Please sign up to volunteer in concessions. We are happy to provide necessary training.

If you are a middle or high school student who is interested in volunteering in concessions, please contact Mr. Kintz, Middle School Athletics Director. You can earn community service by volunteering.

We use the profits from concessions to help purchase equipment and jerseys for the athletes. We are so appreciative to all our parents for their support of our Bulldogs!
