    Mission Statement

    The athletic program at Mount Pleasant Middle School strives to promote healthy competition and to embody the highest ideals of sportsmanship and respect. Students are encouraged to strive to compete at the highest level their ability and performance will allow. We meet the challenges of our athletic philosophy by cultivating the following values:

    • Commitment to achieving individual and team goals
    • Commitment to diligent preparation, fair play and self discipline     
    • Commitment to exercise and competition which contributes to the development of athlete's physical, mental and emotional well-being 
    • Commitment to age and school appropriate coaching and competition   


    Paperwork Requirements

    Do not turn paperwork into the front office.  Please have your child turn-in all paperwork to Ms. Smolick in her classroom.

    The athletic participation packet (see below) MUST be filled out completely prior to trying out for any team or participating in any offered out of season skill development at Mount Pleasant Middle School.  This must be done prior to the start of try outs or any skill developments.  Incomplete packets will not be accepted as all paperwork needs to be turned in at the same time.  Do NOT turn-in paperwork to the head coach of the athletic team.  

     Students who have previously tried out or played for a team at Mount Pleasant Middle during the '17-'18 school year DO NOT have to turn in a new packet.  Please communicate to the coach of the next sport your child is trying out for their desire to try out for that sport.  However, physicals MUST still be good (within the last 365 days) for them to tryout. 

    Please use this packet if your child is a current student at Mount Pleasant Middle School.
