FCMS Athletics

  • Middle School Athletic Philosophy:

    The cornerstones of the Cherry Creek School District middle level athletic program are inclusion/participation for all (no cut policy), skill development, teamwork, and sportsmanship. We believe in healthy competition, but winning is not our main objective-participation is. We believe winning is the natural result of students doing their very best in practices and games in a cooperative effort. Success lies not in being the best, but in doing one’s best. We expect our teams to grow and develop an attitude that reflects team spirit, cooperation, and pride.

    Practice is every day after school, except Fridays. If your child does not ride the late bus or walk home, please arrange to pick up your child at 4:45 pm.


    Meets will begin as close to 4:30 as possible-some schools are further away and start times will be later. It is a good idea to bring a folding chair to meets. For away games/meets, players must ride the bus to school and need to sign out if they do not take the bus home. Reminder, there are NO late buses after games/meets.
