sports information

Cross Country (Fall)

The Middle School Athletic programs are built on the philosophy that all students will participate. Therefore, there is NO "cutting" in the middle school program. Students will have a chance to practice and participate in the sport that they choose. Teams will be divided according to ability level and/or grade depending on the sport and will compete against the same level from the opposing team. Athletes are required to attend all practices and games. If you cannot make it to a practice or game you should notify your coach as soon as possible. All athletes will get playing time but may not get equal playing time.
