Middle School Athletics

Spring Sports Information

Middle School sports are open to all interested students, and there are no “cuts.” All of our programs welcome both experienced and novice student-athletes. The spring season is scheduled to start Monday, March 6. This early start date will be dependent on the condition of the fields and availability of indoor space. We will communicate to the students each day and with families through the GA website about any changes to the regular practice schedule. Students should be prepared to practice either indoors or outside for these first few weeks.

Next Monday (March 6) and Tuesday (March 7) will be trial days, where student-athletes can go to different practices to help them to decide which sport they want to pursue for the season. We ask that students commit to their spring sport by Wednesday, March 8.

Dividing Teams
Our Middle School program takes a flexible approach based upon participation numbers for each sport each year. We look at the composition of teams and approach athletes as individuals. Our coaches will place athletes on the Middle School team that will best foster their athletic growth and skill development, while keeping their socio-emotional growth and safety in mind.

Pick-Up Arrangements for all Middle School Sports
Middle School Sports Practices will be finished no later than 4:45pm, Monday through Thursday. There are no Friday practices or games. Pick-up will take place at the Pavilion. Times for completion of home and away games can vary.
