MIDDLE SCHOOL SPORTS

Orchard Hills Middle School Sports - Try Out Something New!

Orchard Hills 6th, 7th and 8th grade students are invited to play three after-school sports:

CROSS COUNTRY, BASKETBALL & VOLLEYBALL

  • This is an intra-mural program, with no try-outs and no cuts.
  • Practices will be held on campus, after school, with occasional travel to other schools for scrimmages.
  • The emphasis is on sportsmanship and having fun.
  • Students will learn the rules and strategies of each sport in a supportive environment, coached by middle-school teachers.
  • Both experienced and novice athletes are encouraged to participate.
  • Games will be self-refereed by students.
  • Each sport will last for 6 weeks, culminating in a one-day “festival” at the end of the season.
  • A grade-level “all star” team will be chosen to compete in the festival.
  • The festival will be held during the school.day - parents are invited to attend. This is a unique opportunity to observe the students as they referee themselves and practice problem-solving techniques.

Registration:

  • $45 for Cross Country (includes Dino Dash sign-up).  $35 for Basketball & Volleyball.  All are considered donations to the Tustin Public Schools Foundation, who assists in running these programs.
  • See your PE teacher for more information and permission slips.

The registration donation covers the costs of the coaching staff, transportation to and from scrimmages, and the all-day festival at the end of the season. Additional donations are welcome and will help keep after-school sports available. Registration and donations may be completed online at www.tpsf.net.

All incoming 6th grade students will be given a combination padlock for their book locker and one for their PE locker. Students will keep these two locks with them throughout their time at Orchard Hills (6th-8th grade). Locks must be school-issued due to matters of school security. School lockers are considered school property and subject to search. Locks that are not school-issued will be removed. Lost, damaged, or stolen locks must be replaced at a cost of $5.00.
