ALL students are encouraged to become actively involved in one or more of the sports that we offer, and all students who turn out for a sport are given the opportunity to fully participate. Track is the only sport we offer for 6th grade students. All other sports are for 7th & 8th grade students only.

WMS is a member of the Capital League and the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association (WIAA). Our teams compete with other teams (Griffin, Jefferson, Marshall and Reeves) throughout the Capital League.


Eligibility: In order for students to participate in any athletic program, they must:

  •  Maintain a C- or higher in all classes
  •  Clear all fines
  • Pay the district participation fee of $60.00 per sport season. (This fee applies to all sports except track, which is free to all students). Please make checks out to "Washington Middle School."
  •  Have a current physical examination completed prior to participation in a sport, which must be valid throughout the entire sports season. Physicals are valid for 13 months from the date of the exam, and must also indicate a doctor's approval for "full participation."
  •  Have completed all athletic registration forms including a physical examination form, medical travel card, and pink OSD athletic registration folder and returned them to the WMS front office. (All forms are available in the front office).

 

Note: In order to participate in athletics, a student must attend school all day. (Exceptions: Medical/dental appointments, certain emergency absences when approved by either the Principal or Assistant Principal.) All fines must be paid.


Practices are held immediately after school Mondays through Thursdays - no Friday practices - until approximately 4:30 pm. The Olympia School District does not provide transportation home from athletics. Students must be picked up on time.


ACADEMIC PROBATION

  •  In order to maintain athletic eligibility, a student shall maintain a C- or higher in all classes. Grades will be checked weekly.
  •  If a student-athlete receives any grade below a C-, regardless of the grade point average, that student-athlete is placed on academic probation for one week. The student-athlete is allowed to continue to attend and participate in practices only. He/she may not participate in athletic contests during this time. Grades will be checked again at the end of the week.

 


If a student continues to earn grades below a C- and/or receive discipline referrals, he/she may not be allowed to participate in athletic competition for the remainder of the season.
