Middle School Athletics

Whitfield's middle school athletic program is structured to develop the team skills of a student-athlete. Providing the students with an enjoyable, positive experience as well as teaching the necessary skills are important aspects of the program.  Rules interpretation, team strategy and tactics are taught on a consistent basis both on the practice field and in physical education classes.  Coaches work to develop the self-esteem of each individual participant, promote sportsmanship and exercise, enhance socialization and build class camaraderie.  Furthermore, coaches feel that winning isn't the key to lower school sports, but sportsmanship and team play are paramount.

Middle school sports consist of cross country, field hockey, soccer and volleyball in the fall; boys basketball, girls basketball, wrestling, dance squad and cheerleading in the winter; and girls soccer and baseball in the spring. Teams have two practices per week with eight to 14 games per season.

Middle school athletes practice two times a week. Current parents are encouraged to access the Parent Portal for additional practice and game information.
