2016-2017 RMS Athletic Information

We have made some changes this year to how we will be registering our students for athletics, following in the footsteps of the high school.

All students will register online for EACH SPORT they choose to participate in, and payment is required during the registration process. Registration and payment are due PRIOR to the first practice (this is new this year). Refunds will not be given for students who quit after the first competition. For step by step instructions click here.

We have been experiencing increasingly large turnouts for sports the last couple of years here at RMS. These larger turnouts have created the unfortunate need of having to limit the number of participants for some of the sports we offer. These limits are caused by not having other comparable teams to compete against and practice facilities being at or above capacity. Limiting participation is not our preference, nor is it something that we take lightly. Cuts will be made after about three practices and will be at the discretion of the coaches. They will consider academic eligibility, attendance, attitude, skill level, and ability to work with and support a team.

Grades from 4th quarter are used to determine fall eligibility and any quarter grade report with less than a 2.0 GPA or with a failing grade will result in a 3-week suspension from competition. All other quarter grades will be used for the season in session.
