Your child must have a physical in order to be in the athletics class and participate in athletics. ALL ATHLETES MUST HAVE A PHYSICAL, MEDICAL HISTORY & ONLINE PAPERWORK EACH YEAR.
Rank One Online Paperwork
Parents, the Rank One Online Paperwork is very important. This paperwork needs to be completed online in order for your child to participate in any athletic program. The two documents that need to be completed are the Sports Participation Packet and the Emergency Card. Please see attachment of instructions. It is recommended to complete the Rank One Online Paperwork by the parent meeting date.
Athletes must purchase an athletic uniform. The athletic uniform consists of 1 shirt and 1 short. The cost for the athletic uniform is $30.00. Athletic uniforms will be sold during the parent meeting and during school. We recommend purchasing two sets of athletic uniforms. Athletic uniforms will be issued out at the parent meeting:

At Ed Willkie Middle School, we offer:

We recommend that your child participate in as many sports as possible.
- 7th Boys Practice-6:30 am to 8:45 am
- 7th Girls Practice 7:00 am to 8:45 am
- 8th Boys and Girls Practices 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm
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 is trying to participate 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, Gymnastics and Dance
Golf, gymnastics, and dance 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 you 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, gymnastics, or dance.
