Middle school sports return after 40 years!

Middle school sports returned to Battle Ground Public Schools after a 40-year absence. The district introduced basketball, cross country, and soccer in 2021-22. Other sports will be added in future years.

History of middle school sports

The last season of middle school sports in Battle Ground was in 1982 before they were eliminated due to a double levy failure. 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 6th, 7th and 8th graders. Volleyball, track, basketball and cross country are open to grades 6-8. Soccer is open to grades 7-8.
  • Seasons are divided into a few weeks of non-competitive intramural play followed by competitive games vs. other middle schools in the district. Students can participate in just the intramural play.
  • 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 and CAM Academy) can participate in sports at their neighborhood middle school, and must live within the boundaries of the school.
  • The district will follow all state requirements for pandemic restrictions in place during the season.

Middle school sports funding

Students who participate in middle school sports pay an ASB fee and individual sport fees that cover some program costs such as transportation between games and officials.

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.
