Ira Jones Athletics Mission Statement
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!
