View important information about modified fall sports

The C.J. Hooker Middle School offers a variety of interscholastic athletic opportunities throughout the school year, open to all students in seventh and eighth grade.

Modified sports practices typically run from 3-5 p.m. Monday through Friday. From 2:30-3 p.m., students should stay with a teacher or in a supervised area. At the conclusion of practice, parents may pick up athletes or they may take the 5 p.m. late bus.

In order to participate in a modified sport, athletes must have a current physical on file in the health office, and turn in the following forms:

  1.  parent permission form, and
  2. school physical form, if it has been updated since the athlete last participated in a school sport.

These forms can be found on the website’s Form page under Athletics.
