Bryan Middle School has a wide variety of athletic and extra-curricular opportunities available to all students. Students are encouraged to take advantage of these offerings, which promote teamwork, community service, school pride, and involvement. Becoming involved in extra-curricular activities can be such a crucial element to a student's success in school. Please take advantage of all the sports or activities that Bryan Middle School has to offer!
Students interested in participating in Bryan Middle athletics must have the following current and on file:
· Valid Physical Examination
· Middle Level Activities Contract
· Concussion Awareness Form
· Bryan Middle School Activity Card
These forms will be distributed to interested student-athletes in school, but may also be obtained online through our school's athletic or district website. Coaches will also provide additional information regarding academic and behavior expectations for participation to you before the season begins.
ATHLETIC PRACTICES, COMPETITIONS/CONTESTS, EVENTS
Athletic practices and most contests will be held during the week. Practices will begin after school and end around 4:30pm, Monday through Friday. Contest times may officially begin at 3:10pm, but may vary depending on location, transportation, and duration. You may contact our school’s office or your child’s coach to verify information at any time during office hours.
Basketball, football, soccer, wrestling, and volleyball are divided into two or more squads: varsity and junior varsity. Student-athletes will have the opportunity to play on either. Soccer and wrestling contests will typically begin with junior varsity squads, while basketball and volleyball start with varsity. Football varsity and junior varsity will both begin at 3:10p.m, but played in different locations. All other sports teams begin collectively at 3:10p.m.
The cost to attend middle school athletic events is $2.00 for adults beginning the 2014-2015 school year. Students with an Activity Card may attend athletic contests at a discounted rate. Activity Cards can be obtained from our school office.
Each student-athlete will receive a competition uniform and additional locker, if necessary, during the season. These uniforms should remain at school. Students involved in an extra-curricular activity other than sports may have a uniform associated with their club or organization. Students are responsible for any items not placed in their lockers. For practices and/or meets, it is highly recommended that appropriate footwear, swimwear, or additional clothing be worn and properly stored. We don't want anyone to have their personal or school items come up missing! Coaches or activity sponsors will provide their students a list of recommended items at the beginning of each activity, sport, or season.
Cancellations regarding all extra-curricular activities, including athletics, will be made before 12:00pm. on the day of the activity. Online and school intercom announcements will notify . Students will be allowed to make phone calls during their lunch hour to notify parents or guardians. Contests or events may be rescheduled. You may call our school during office hours to inquire about a particular contest or activity.
If your child qualifies for OPS transportation, they will be provided a bus from Bryan Middle School after practice or contests to their designated after school stop. This information will be given to the student on the first day of practice. For away contests or events, all students will be provided transportation to the destination and back to Bryan Middle School.
EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES THROUGHOUT THE YEAR
Students will have the opportunity to participate in many after school activities other than sports throughout the year. If sports aren't your thing, no problem! Hopefully there is something for everyone!
Strong academic standing and respectful behavior are expected for participation. Announcements will be made during the school day so it's important for students to listen to when their after school activity begins. Information regarding the club, organization, or activity will be sent home prior to it's first day or on the first day by the activity sponsor. Many of Bryan Middle School's after school activities last longer than a semester.
