Athletics

Research indicates that effective after school activity programs contribute to increased student achievement. Whether your child’s interests lie in community service, athletics, or the arts, AISD strives to offer a comprehensive and well balanced after school activity program. Please encourage your child to come out, bring a friend, and try something new.

ATHLETICS

The AISD Middle School Athletics program is committed to the involvement of as many students as possible through an inclusion policy. The program aims to build skills and knowledge while promoting effort, enjoyment, commitment, positive sportsmanship and fair play. We strive to develop appropriate attitudes towards sportsmanship and competition in all student-athletes. Experience in intramural and interscholastic activities provides students with opportunities to learn skills, make new friends and engage in friendly competition. Students may choose between Volleyball, Soccer, Basketball, Badminton, SAISA Swimming and SAISA Track & Field.

The program structure is such that one team (A Team) is comprised of the stronger skilled players while the remaining students are evenly divided into the additional teams. Intramural activities take place on Mondays and Wednesdays, over the course of a 6-week season. The season ends with a local tournament at AISD, usually held on a Saturday. There is a Head Coach and two Assistant Coaches for each sport. The extra coaches are due to the increased participation in recent years. Our sports seasons typically have between 80-120 student-athletes participating. With 12 sports teams being offered over the course of 4 seasons, middle school students truly do have a world of choices. 

Sign-ups

Students sign up on-line for the sports they wish to participate in. Students will be sent instructions and a form via their AISD g-mail account to sign up for both activities and athletic teams. There will also be a link on this web page for students to use to sign-up.
