Middle School Vision Statement

Middle school student athletes will build a strong  foundation for Academic and Athletic achievement through emotional, social and physical development to foster problem solving skills, teamwork, and resilience.

This page provides information for parents, students, and coaches about requirements in middle school athletics.

One requirement for parents and students is to view the JCPS Health & Safety Video. Students must watch it annually; parents must watch it one time at each grade level (middle and high). Coaches must stay current in their certification of the Kentucky High School Athletic Association (KHSAA) Sports Safety Course.

JCPS/KHSAA regulations govern all schools and sports in the district. JCPS currently sponsors football, soccer, field hockey, cross-country, volleyball, golf, boys' basketball, girls' basketball, archery, competitive cheer, dance team, swimming, baseball, fast pitch softball, track and field, and tennis. The association's bylaws create rules for all sports, including limitation of seasons, transfer rules, recruitment and influencing students, officiating, sportmanship, and requirements to coach.
