Middle School Sports
With guidelines from CHSAA, we are working on middle school activities' schedules for the 2020–21 school year. The schedule below lists tentative dates for when athletics seasons would take place this school year. We will post specific event schedules at a later date and are subject to change.
Participants must have a current physical and be registered through Family ID. If you have any questions, please contact University Middle School Athletic Director, Garner Agone, at (970) 576-3904 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Information on Current Sports
7th and 8th grade volleyball and 6th, 7th, and 8th grade wrestling practices are scheduled to start on Tuesday, January 19. Participants need to be registered through Family ID and have a current athletics physical.
At this time, participating schools in our NPMLA athletic league will only be allowing home spectators. We will allow athletes two spectators apiece at home events. Spectators must wear masks upon entering the facility and practice social distancing. We will provide information for live-streamed away games when made available from opposing schools.

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.
We offer the following seasonal sports for students in 7th and 8th grades:
- Fall: Cross country (6th grade also), football, volleyball
- Winter: Boys basketball, girls basketball, wrestling (6th grade also)
- Spring: Brainbowl, track and field
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.
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 Garner Agone, Middle School Athletics Director, at email@example.com. 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!
