SPPS Athletic Update | March 25, 2021


Our After-School Sports Program offers a variety of sports each season. Each sports season is nine weeks long. Membership on a team requires a desire to play and the appropriate commitment to being a team player.

In all of the sports programs, Ramsey teams compete against other middle schools in our district. We have four sports seasons throughout the school year consisting of 12 different teams.

In order to participate in school sports, students must have an Athletic Physical Form on file with the school nurse. The health examination needs to have been completed within the past three years. Students must also turn in a Athletic Permission Form for each sport they play during the year. Please click on the Health Examination and Parent Permission forms on the right under forms. Students can also pick up copies of these forms in the school office or from Ms. Ekegren room (1102).

Program Objectives:

  • Encourage levels of excellence from our athletic teams that match our expectations in the classroom.
  • Instill appreciation of commitment to team, school and fitness.
  • Teach rules, skills, self-discipline, cooperation, sportsmanship, respect and commitment to shared goals.
