Wilson Middle School recognizes the importance of athletic activities in providing students with important opportunities for total education. These activities teach students lifetime values such as commitment, discipline, hard work, leadership, teamwork, and physical fitness, all of which are the foundation for academic success. Participation in athletic activities contributes to the physical, emotional and social health of our students and promotes a sense of unity and cooperation among athletes, the student body, and the community. Students try out for the limited number of spots on each team. Coaches will select the few they believe will make the best team and the coaches’ decisions are final. All team members will get playing time during the season but not all students will play in every game and playing time will not be equal for all team members.
