BADGER & LADY BADGER ATHLETICS
Our commitment to you...
As a staff, we are committed to providing your student-athlete with the knowledge, attention, direction, morality, discipline, and care. We have set our expectations high. We will promote team unity and will strive to motivate your student athlete's best efforts. We are truly committed to teaching life lessons through athletics.Our mission is to prepare your student-athlete to be highly successful in the classroom, community, and on the athletic fields. We will prepare your student-athlete so that he/she will understand and embrace the honor and respect they need to achieve athletically and academically at the next level of their educational experience.
Your child must have a physical in order to be in the athletics class and participate in a sport. All athletes must have a physical each year as well as other forms of paperwork. ALL ATHLETES MUST HAVE A PHYSICAL, MEDICAL HISTORY & ONLINE PAPERWORK EACH YEAR.
Your child must purchase an athletic uniform. The athletic uniform consists of 1 shirt and 1 pair of shorts. The cost of the athletic uniform is $35.00. It is recommended to order two sets. More information will be provided.
At Ed Willkie Middle School, we offer the following sports:
- Cross Country
We recommend that your child participates in as many sports as possible.
Please note the following guidelines for the sports.
All sports have a try-out procedure (except for football). That means that your child must try-out and make a team in that sport. As stated before, the exception is football. There are no cuts in football. Your child will be on a football team if he tries out for the football team.
If your child participates in football, volleyball, or basketball, then he/she needs to be enrolled in the athletic class.
Cross Country and Track
Cross-country and track are sports that are either before school or after school. Your child do not have to be in the athletic class to participate in these two sports but we do highly recommend that your child be in the athletic class to improve their chances to make the team and to try-out for other sports while in athletics.
Soccer and Tennis
Soccer and tennis have their own athletic period. If your child is solely going to play either soccer or tennis, then they should be in one of these classes. However, if your child is planning to try out for other sports like football, volleyball, basketball, then we highly recommend that your child be enrolled in the athletic class.
Golf and Gymnastics
Golf and gymnastics are unique sports for your child to try-out and participate. Both sports are done at Chisholm Trail High School. High school coaches will coach your child at the high school. You must take your child to CTHS and a bus will bring them back to Ed Willkie. If you have a child participating in golf, they must have your own set of golf clubs. In addition, your child will not be able to participate in our athletic class if he/she is in golf or gymnastics.
