Athletics

  • St. Louis Park Middle School offers a unique opportunity for students in 6th-8th grade to participate in extracurricular sports. We offer a wide variety of sports for both boys and girls throughout the school year. Middle school athletics is a great time to continue working on skills, challenge yourself to become better, and try something new.

    “I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I cannot accept not trying.”– Michael Jordan

    The first day of practice is Monday, January 13th. The season lasts approximately eight weeks, usually until the first week of March. Practices are from 2:30-4:30 p.m., Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. There are no after school activities on Wednesdays.

    The following must be received to the Athletic Director by October 28th for girls basketball:

    • Registration and payment (see above for instructions)
    • Proof of sports physical exam (exam date can be found on Powerschool) given within the previous three years (which clears the athlete for full participation) on file in the Health Office. If the physical expires during the season, a new physical must be provided before the athlete may begin participation. A well child check-up or immunization records do not count as a  sports physical. Click here to download the 2019-20 Sports Qualifying Physical Examination Medical Eligibility Form.
