    Sports Programs

    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

    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.


    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 the 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 gagone@universityschools.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!
