Rudolph Hennig Junior High School offers a variety of athletic opportunities for our students. This includes Cross Country running, Volleyball, Basketball, Handball, Badminton, Golf, and Track and Field. It is a privilege to be a member of a Ravens Athletic team. Student-athletes are expected to do their best academically, as well as their best athletically. We encourage all students to become involved in any extracurricular activities that interest them. Families will receive information about the season at the beginning of tryouts, including fees. All fees must be paid, or payment plans arranged with the Business Manager prior to the start of the season.
Be sure to thank the teachers, parents, and students who are volunteering their time to help coach!
