History of middle school sports

Middle school sports returned to Battle Ground schools in 2021-22 after a forty year absence. Following a double levy failure in 1982, middle school sports were cut due to budget reductions. The Battle Ground Public Schools Board of Directors worked to bring back middle school sports in response to requests from parents and community members on district surveys. A few years ago, the district began conducting ThoughtExchange surveys that brought priorities such as middle school sports to the top of the list of what the community wants for our students.

Details

  • Participation is open to all students in grades 6-8. Soccer will expand in the 2023-24 school year to also include grade 6 students.
  • Most sports are no-cut. In cases where students might be cut, no fee will be charged until teams are finalized.
  • Prior to the first practice, students must have a completed sports physical and be registered on Family ID.
  • Practices and games will be held after middle schools release at 2:40 p.m.
  • Participating students must maintain academic eligibility per district requirements.
  • Students attending our ALE schools (River HomeLink , Battle Ground Virtual Academy, CAM Academy) can participate in sports at their neighborhood middle school, and must live within the boundaries of the school.

Middle school sports funding

 

Battle Ground’s local school levy pays for middle school sports equipment and coaches’ salaries. The district is able to fund student activities beyond basic education and continues to be fiscally responsible while maintaining the lowest local school tax rate in Clark County. Thank you voters for supporting our students and approving a four-year levy for 2022-2025!

To help manage the cost of reintroducing the middle school sports program, sports will be phased in over several years and use existing facilities.
