The After School Sports Program is an ongoing program that offers various sports in five to six-week blocks. There are no try-outs and students are not "cut." Membership on a team simply requires a desire to play and the appropriate commitment to being a team player. In this after school program, Pine Valley teams compete against other middle schools in our district.
- Provide an opportunity for students to experience a variety of competitive sports in a safe and supportive environment.
- Develop fundamental athletic skills that prepare participants for advanced competition.
- Reinforce life skills of respect, cooperation, and effort in a competitive environment.
- To have fun and promote school pride.
The After School Sports program operates solely on a donation basis. These monies help pay for coaches and referees. A payment of $65 for each sport played will be requested during sign-ups each season.
Private vehicles will provide transportation to and from away games. All drivers who will be transporting students, other than their own, must complete a Personal Automobile Use Permission Form that will be kept on file for the school year in the main office. These forms may be picked up in the office or from a coach.

How to Sign Up
Listen to the morning announcements and look for fliers around campus and in the P.E. locker rooms notifying students of when to sign up for a sport. Students will be instructed where to sign up, where to pick up paperwork and when to attend the first practice after school.
