Baseball/Softball   Begins October 12 
Boys Basketball/Girls Soccer/Cheer  Begins November 30
Girls Basketball/Boys Soccer/Cross Country  Begins February 8

Due to the condensed schedule and limited available coaches, the district will be implementing A and B teams in the following sports:

  • Boys Basketball
