FRMS offers a comprehensive athletic program for students throughout the year. Involvement in team sports helps students improve their self-esteem, communication skills, critical thinking abilities and their relationships with others.

Winter Session 3 Sports Registration is Open

  • 8th Grade Boys Basketball
  • 7th/8th Grade Swimming


To secure a guaranteed spot on the team, students must be registered before the first day of practice with a sports physical on file and payment made through myPaymentsplus.  Students who register after the first day of practice will be waitlisted and cannot be guaranteed a spot on the team.


2023-24 Middle School Athletics Information

District 196 middle schools offer five sport seasons throughout the school year. Sports are for 7th and 8th grade students, with the exception of cross-country and wrestling, which is also offered to 6th grade students. In general, sports practice is after school, Monday-Friday from 3:20-5 p.m. Competitions may last past 5 p.m., depending on the event. 

Transportation is provided to and from off-site events from Falcon Ridge Middle School. There are also daily activity buses at 5 p.m. that are accessible for students after practice.

·         current sports physical (current for 3 years from date of exam) must be on file with the school nurse in order to register.

·         Registration for sports is on MyPaymentPlus. Registration begins approximately two weeks prior to the season start.

·         Participation fee is $110 per season. Each season is approximately six weeks.

·         The fee will be waived for families that qualify for Free and Reduced Lunch.

Procedure for Weather Related Cancellations:

Practices and games can be cancelled due to inclement weather.   We will take these steps noted below to notify parents/guardians of after school sport cancellations:

  • We will send an email to parents at 1:00 p.m. if we need to cancel after school practices and/or competitions.
  • We will announce over the loud speaker for all students to take the bus home or contact a parent/guardian for a ride.
  • Please note that weather can change with little notice so there may be times when we cancel closer to the end of the school day.
    • If this is the case, we will email parents by 2:45pm and make announcements at school.
    • Please establish a plan for your child if/when practice and/or competitions are cancelled so all involved know what to do. This should include the student taking the bus home or a back-up ride home if the parent/guardian is not able to get to school by 3:30 pm.
