On January 13, MDHHS extended many restrictions and protocols related to athletics. As a result, our middle school sports league, along with all school administrations, has decided to discontinue Boys’ Basketball for the 20/21 school year. This decision was not made lightly; due to time constraints and other competitive programs waiting, a decision to cancel was the best option to enable other sports to have a chance to compete.
Parents/Guardians of Boys’ Basketball players, we ask for you to drop off your jerseys and shorts in a bag with proper identification on it so we can check it in properly. There will be a bin in the foyer for you to drop the uniform.
Girls’ Basketball and Wrestling…we anticipate your season to begin on February 1st. We will continue to implement the required safety protocols and restrictions identified by MDHHS. Sign-up forms are available below as well as the North Middle School Website under Athletics. Coaches will be sending out additional information.
