Students in fifth through eighth grades are eligible to participate in the extracurricular athletics program. We currently offer volleyball, basketball, track, and fitness training. Morristown School is a founding member of the Central Mountain League, an organization that gives our students an opportunity to play games with other schools of comparable size. Other schools in the Central Mountain League include Congress Elementary, Model Creek, Wickenburg Christian Academy, Canon, and Festival Foothills. We require written parental consent for students to participate in interscholastic sports.
Students must furnish proof of insurance coverage before they begin participation in the sports activity and must enroll in the after-school program with paid fees or fee waivers. Students will maintain at least a "C" average and will be ineligible with two "D" marks on their progress report or report card. If students become ineligible on the basis of unsatisfactory grades, they may attend after-school remedial sessions 2–4 times per week. Students may resume sports when they improve grades to eligibility level. We will advise students and parents of ineligibility by written notice. Injured students must have a physician’s release before returning to playing status.
We expect students participating in sports to display excellent citizenship in the classroom as well as on the playing field. Failure to do so will result in loss of sports privileges.
