NSSD MIDDLE SCHOOL ATHLETICS UPDATE

September 24, 2021

Parents,


Thank you all for your flexibility and patience as we continue to navigate middle school athletics this fall. We have been busy making arrangements to ensure we get as many games in as possible. Here is the line-up for our confirmed games for next week:


September 27:

  • Boys Soccer Home vs. Talmadge 2

  • Changed Location: Girls Soccer @ French Prairie - New start time of 5:15 or as soon as they are ready.

    • French Prairie could not provide a bus to Stayton.

    • Bus leaves by 4:15 game start as soon as they are ready.


September 29:


  • 8th Grade Football @ Cascade, 4:00 Start

    • Combined bus w/Cross Country

  • 7th Grade Football Home vs. Cascade, 4:00 Start

  • Cross Country @ Jefferson Middle School Invitational

    • Combined bus w/8th Grade Football

  • Volleyball @ North Marion, 4:00 Start

    • Combined bus w/ Girls Soccer

  • Girls Soccer @ North Marion, 4:00 Start

    • Combined bus w/ Volleyball - Return time will be later than normal as they will need to wait for volleyball to be completed.


Shelly Polk at Mid-Co has done an unbelievable job working with us to provide as much transportation as possible. It has been great to work with her and she is working very hard to make sure our students have an opportunity to get to our games. There may be instances where we will have to change departure times to later start times or release

Just a reminder that if any student-athlete is not riding the bus and needs to be transported home by someone other than their legal guardian, the NSSD Transportation Form must be completed and returned to the main office of their school 24 hours prior to the trip. All athletes not riding the bus home from away games need to be signed out with the coach after the game or competition.


We will be hosting the Regis Invitational Cross Country meet on October 7th. This is an amazing meet with a large number of middle school and high school student athletes. Please make a note to yourself that ALL PRACTICES ARE CANCELED ON OCTOBER 7th. Our campus becomes extremely busy during this meet and we need to maximize our parking spaces and limit traffic during this day.


Last, all Fall sports registrations are now closed. I will be sending out information on our winter sports registrations in my update next week.


Go Vikings!
