Jackson Heights Middle School offers its students an interscholastic competitive athletic program. Students are required to obtain/pass a physical examination and provide proof of insurance before participating.
Team members are required to pay a participation fee. The participation fee helps to cover expenses incurred from coach’s salaries, supplies, referees, and travel. Once students become 16 years old they can no longer participate in sports. Junior Varsity participants may only be 6th or 7th grade students and once a JV student becomes 15 years old, they are no longer eligible to participate.
All student interscholastic sports participants MUST have a 2.0 GPA or great on their most recent report card to try out for a team. If a student falls below a 2.0 GPA on their progress report, they are placed on probation and monitored by their coach to ensure that their grades improve. If a student falls below a 2.0 GPA on the next report card, they will be removed from the team. All participants are under the requirements of the District Citizenship Policy.
Jackson Heights Middle School offers a variety of intramural programs during the school year. The program may run before or after school depending on need. An effort is made to provide a companion program with our interscholastic sports program so that students who do not make one of the competitive teams can participate in an intramural program and no try-outs are necessary.
