Football, volleyball, basketball, track, cross-country, tennis. (MIS students participate in PE only.)
How are athletic teams selected?
For football, all who are interested can play. For volleyball and basketball, team sizes must be manageable. Therefore, students participate in a try-out process. They are provided feedback from coaches. Results of the try-outs are posted by the coaches. Students who do not make the team are highly encouraged to continue in the athletics class, participating in an off-season program.
What is off-season?
For students who are not competing on the athletic teams, the off-season program is provided with the goal of developing and improving athletic skills.
How does off-campus PE work?
A 7th or 8th grade student who participates in a competitive sport for a minimum of 15 hours per week outside the school day qualifies to apply for an off-campus PE class. This class takes the place of a 1st or 8th period elective, depending on the work-out schedule of the student.
Requirements and forms are posted on the HPMS website under the Counseling section. Off-campus coaches are required to give a grade, or the student will not gain credit for the course.
McCulloch 5th and 6th graders are not allowed to participate in off-campus PE.
