Hello Middle School Parents,
Happy New Year!
If your son/daughter is planning on participating on the after school basketball team, I will meet with the league Thursday January 5th to finalize our schedule. Until then, here is our basketball schedule for the first week we return to school:
NOTE FROM COACH
PE /Athletic Director: Coach Barry Panes
Welcome 2016 JSS parents to our incomparable athletic program. We pride ourselves on enriching the lives of our students with fitness and exercise through sports while teaching them sportsmanship and team work by introducing them to competitive sports.
We believe in making every sport available to all our middle school students. With that said, our after school sports program consists of the following:
Boys and Girls Basketball
Boys and Girls Bowling
Boys and Girls Flag Football
Boys and Girls Soccer
Boys and Girls Track & Field
Boys and Girls Volleyball
There are no special requirements to participate in after school sports. We actually encourage ALL students to begin getting involved at the middle school level to prepare for sports in their high school years. However, students must maintain a “C” average in classes and must receive no less than a “2” in “Conduct” and “Homework”.
If there are a large number of participants out for one sport, they may be separated into a JV and Varsity team: an 8th grade student is unable to be on a JV team.
At the end of the 2016 school year, once all after school sports have concluded, we host an annual Sports Awards Night. The purpose of the awards night is to recognize all students’ participation in the after school sports program. Having the awards night also allows the students to applaud their fellow classmates.
As far as when games are scheduled, the majority of the games are scheduled on Tuesdays and Thursdays with the exception of volleyball games which are generally scheduled on Mondays and Wednesdays. Furthermore, most games are scheduled at home since JSS has one of, if not the nicest athletic facilities in the league.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns regarding the after school sports program, feel free to contact me directly. I am always available and willing to assist where I am able. I am looking forward to another great sports year. Go Mustangs!
