What is the process for my middle school child to participate in JV/Varsity sports?
First, check the list of sports available to your middle school student for that sport's season. A list of sports can be found on WITS and on the District’s website.

It will then be forwarded to the Athletic Director for the district for review. You child will then be notified if they are qualified to continue the process.
