After-school events, activities, athletics and evening programs are canceled TODAY, Friday, Dec. 10, due to the weather. For updated information on how this cancellation affects other after-school activities, please visit spps.org.
Our After-School Sports Program offers a variety of sports each season. Membership on a team requires a desire to play and the appropriate commitment to being a team player.
In all of the sports programs, Battle Creek teams compete against other middle schools in our district. We have four sports seasons throughout the school year consisting of 11 different teams.
In order to participate in school sports, students must have an Athletic Health Examination Form on file with the school nurse. The health examination needs to have been completed within the past three years. Students must also turn in a Registration Form for each sport they play during the year. Students can also pick up copies of these forms in the school office.
Provide an opportunity for students to learn the rules, strategies, and teamwork in a safe and supportive learning environment.
