Middle School Information

Middle School Athletics Information

The Mountainside athletic program is available for both boys and girls in sixth, seventh, and eighth grades.  The sports that are offered at Mountainside are: Baseball, Volleyball, Softball, Boys and Girls Soccer, Flag Football, Cross Country Track, Boys and Girls Basketball, Track & Field, and Spirit Line. 


All student athletes will learn the basic fundamental skills of the sport, rules, safety precautions, positions, strategies, gear/equipment, and how to play the sport.  Regardless of experience, all student athletes will participate equally and get to play most, if not all of the positions in the sport they are signed registered for. At the end of TIER ONE, there will be an SUSD Saturday Festival where all student athletes will participate in 3 games.  Following the TIER ONE season, the coach will need to finalize his or her team to 15 players to move onto the TIER TWO season which means that not all TIER ONE athletes will be selected to go onto TIER TWO.  The coach will decide on the best 15 student athletes for the team regardless of grade.  Coaches consider things like playing ability, practice and school attendance, attitude, positional needs, and team chemistry.  The cost for TIER ONE is $60 and is nonrefundable, regardless if your child is selected for TIER TWO. 



The fee for TIER TWO is $30 and is nonrefundable.  15 student athletes will continue for 4 more weeks after TIER ONE, compete against other SUSD Middle Schools, and have both home and away games. Student athletes need to have above a 2.0 GPA and no F’s in order to be eligible and compete in athletic competitive games.
