Tennis players

Welcome to another year of athletics for Liberty Middle School. Here are some helpful tips when trying out for sports:

  • Tryouts are open to all LMS students. 
  • Please remember if a student wants to try out for a sport, he/she must turn in a completed sports physical. We encourage students to turn in their sports physical prior to the first day of tryouts. 
  • Students who do not have a completed sports physical will not be allowed to tryout and should not stay after school for tryouts. 
  • Sometimes weather conditions force the cancellation of tryouts or practices. Please discuss with your student on how they will go home if tryouts/practices are canceled in advance. Example: If tryouts are canceled, you will ride the bus home. We will announce any cancellations via e-connect. Parents are also welcome to call the main office. We try to make every effort to make decisions by 2:30 p.m. each day. 
  • When picking up your child from tryouts, please park in the parking lot near the gym. do not park in the bus loop. We have buses that need access to the bus loop as well as the fire lane must remain clear. 
  • The activity bus will be running every day. Please refer to the activity bus schedule attachment for specific bus numbers, times, and locations. 

Please keep an eye out for how to join our Liberty Athletics page on Schoology where you can look at game schedules, cancellations, and other great sports-related information. 

Go Eagles!

Interscholastic Teams

We offer interscholastic team opportunities every season to:

  • Safeguard the health and general welfare of the participants in the athletics program.
  • Provide opportunities for the largest possible group (number of students) to participate while ensuring the quality of the instruction and the safety of the athletes, within the limits of the appropriate supervision and facility usage.
  • Develop basic skills and continue previous skill development in physical activities that will serve the participant's present and future leisure time needs.
  • Establish and teach high standards of sportsmanship and the principles of fair play and mutual respect, which cultivate friendly relations at school.
  • Ensure that the activities sponsored are desirable; that they promote the concepts of team play as well as individual worth; that they emphasize healthy competition in which lessons are learned from both the winning and losing perspectives; and that they have educational value.
