Ira Jones Middle School attempts to accommodate the large number of students who wish to participate in athletic competitions against other schools. Sports, which can handle a large number of students, such as cross-country, wrestling, and track, are operated on a no-cut, no tryout basis so that all who wish to join may participate.
Since only a limited number of students can participate in certain sports such as boys basketball (5), girls basketball (5), volleyball (6), or soccer (11) at one time, a limited number of players are selected for these teams, through a try-out process.
To help accommodate more students, a seventh grade team and an eighth grade team are offered for boys basketball, girls basketball, and volleyball.
Our middle school offers a variety, of interscholastic sports throughout the school year for students in seventh and eighth grade.
To ensure safety, students must have a completed, signed sports physical on file in the school office, complete and return an insurance waiver form to the coach before participating in a try-out, practice, or game for any interscholastic sports team at our middle school. Physicals expire 395 days after the date on that physical. No exceptions!
