Middle School Intramural/Interscholastic Program

Participation in organized school sports offers opportunities for students of all ages to be physically active and has been shown to help improve students’ self-esteem and psychological well-being. While participation in sports can play an important role in increasing physical activity levels, as some have noted, school sports participation alone may not be sufficient to meet the current physical activity recommendations for adolescents. Therefore sports participation should not be seen as a replacement for physical education in schools but rather as a supplement to the solid foundation provided by physical education.

  • Eligibility and Physical Forms Packet for Middle School Students to participate in the Intramural/Interscholastic Program.
  • Physical Verification Forms - These forms are for students that have already had a physical for one sport (they are good for one year), have been cleared and they now want to participate in another sport during that calendar year.  For example, had a physical for interscholastic basketball, but now want to play intramural volleyball, they need to do a verification because they already completed the initial physical.
