Jefferson Athletics

District 45 is proud to offer a variety of opportunities for students to participate in both intramural and interscholastic competition. One of the highest predictors of high school success for middle level learners is their participation in one or more school activities. We encourage all students in District 45 to be connected to their school community through participation in school-based activities, clubs, and/or athletics.

Athletic Participation Forms

There are two forms that every student participating in athletics (including intramurals) needs to have completed before they can participate:

In regards to District 45 interscholastic sports, we believe:
  • in a balance between skill development and competition at the middle school level
  • all athletes will have an opportunity to play; however, playing time may be varied based on skill level
  • being able to learn from experience and having a positive experience are important components
  • participation for as many students as possible is desired
  • the program should be directed toward skill building, team concepts, positive sportsmanship, and the fun of involvement and fair play
  • both coaches and athletes work to create an inclusive and energetic team environment, while preparing for the transition to higher level athletics
  • athletics are an extension of the classroom
