Middle School Athletics

Students in grades 6-8 will now have the opportunity to take part in organized team sports this fall, thanks to an expansion of the San Diego Unified School District's new middle school athletics program.


Registration is now open for basketball and track & field, which will run concurrently this fall with a start date of Tuesday, September 6. All students in grades 6-8 will be invited to tryouts and practice for whichever of the two offered sports they choose.

Earlier this year, San Diego Unified announced one of the biggest expansions of its athletics program with the launch of middle school soccer, bringing official district-managed sports to middle schools for the first time.

While sports clubs had previously existed at some individual schools, middle school athletes across the district now have access to qualified coaching and a chance to represent their community in competition against other schools.

Teams will play at their neighborhood high school athletic facilities, giving the young students a chance to establish a connection and familiarity with their future schools.


The district plans to offer additional sports for winter and spring, including flag football volleyball and soccer. For basketball and track this fall, all 6th - 8th grade parents are encouraged to sign up as soon as possible.
