• EMS Sports Information 2021-22

    All students can participate. We do not cut at the middle school level for athletics. A physical is required before the first practice. Physical forms are located outside of our main office. Fees are: $25 for one sport. Two or more sports would be another $20 dollars ($45 total for two or more sports). Free and reduced lunch students pay a reduced fee of $12.50 for one sport and $22.50 for two or more sports. Fees can be paid at the main office.

    We hope to have sports studyhall available for Girls Basketball, Boys Basketball, and Girls Volleyball. It is contigent on complete student cooperation and their excellent behavior. If student athletes do not cooperate with adults they will not be allowed to attend. Which means parents will need to pick them up and bring them back 7 minutes prior to their practice. If they are not in Sports Studyhall they will not be allowed on Campus.
