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.

    UPDATE 4/28/20
     
    The Minnesota State High School League, under direction of the League’s Board of Directors, has declared, effective immediately, all activities and athletics that occur during the spring season have been cancelled for the 2019-2020 school year. The decision of the League is aligned with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Minnesota Department of Health and is in support of practices that focus on community health and safety. 
     
    At the end of last week we began communicating out the process for requesting a refund for spring sports participation fees or the option of donating the fee to the District. In these uncharted times we all are currently operating in, we have made the decision to move forward and issue refunds to all registered participants without expecting families to request the refund. All credit card paid fees will be refunded by next Wednesday, May 6th. Any fees that were paid by check or cash will be refunded as soon as possible via a check from the District Office Business Department. If you paid by credit card and the card has been cancelled or changed please email Athletic Director Derek Wennerberg at wennerberg.derek@slpschools.org as soon as possible so we can issue your refund by check.
