Athletics

At Castle Rock Middle School, we offer a variety of athletic programs for our students. We believe that students need a creative and fun outlet. Here they will work hard, learn the value of teamwork, and develop new skills.  Our philosophy is that all students that want to play, will play.  We do not 'cut' athletes from our program.  All ability levels are welcome and encouraged to participate.  We have students that have been playing a sport for years and some that are new to it.  We work each day to make a great season for all.   We also greatly appreciate parent support at all of our athletic events.  Parents are encouraged to come to every game to cheer on their student and all of our CRMS athletes

 

We are excited to announce that football for 7th and 8th grade will once again be part of our Fall Athletics Season.  Our football season is coed and both 7th and 8th graders will be playing flag football (8th grade tackle will return in 2021). This news was announced to our community yesterday and is made possible by a variance granted to the Colorado High School Activities Association from the Governor.  


7th Grade Flag Football will focus on fundamentals of football and teach athletes a variety of football skills.  8th Grade Flag Football will work with athletes to enhance their football knowledge and prepare them for Freshman football at high school.  Our coaching staff will work with the Freshman offensive playbook as well as Freshman defensive fronts.  


We have opened up registration for both 7th and 8th grade football. These 6 game seasons will run simultaneously with practice beginning on Monday, October 5.  Practices are from 3:05pm - 4:45pm Monday through Thursday.  Updates regarding games, schedules, and other details will be put on our CRMS Athletics website.  


Registration can be completed at MySchoolBucks.


A current physical is required for all students to participate in middle school athletics. 


We look forward to a great football season for our students.
