    Madison Athletics

    Students at Madison can participate in 3 seasons of sports. 


    Studies show that students participating in athletics have higher GPAs, better attendance, lower dropout rates, fewer disciplinary problems, higher graduation rates, and better success in college than nonparticipants. This is done by providing healthy, supervised after-school activities for students. Athletic participation teaches teamwork, goal setting, discipline, sportsmanship, leadership, and other valuable life skills, helping students become contributing members of their school and community as well as providing an important alternative to anti-social behaviors. Our department coordinates with our middle and high schools to run this valuable portion of a student’s extra-curricular life.


    Our vision is excellence in academics and athletics by connecting kids to academics through an exceptional athletic program. To meet this vision our mission and goals are:
    • Transform: Providing an exemplary athletic program with maximum student participation
    • Enable: Utilizing the individual and group skills and knowledge of our athletic coaches, teaching staff, and community to encourage excellence both in the classroom and on the playing field.
    • Operate: Coordination of operating an all-encompassing athletic program in both the middle school and high school levels.
    • Productivity: Encourage academic and athletic excellence for all participating students

    Madison middle school students can participate in several sports during the school year:

    • Soccer (fall girls' sport, spring boys' sport)
    • Ultimate Frisbee (fall co-ed sport)
    • Basketball (winter boys' and girls' sport)
    • Volleyball (spring girls' sport)
    • Track (spring co-ed sport)
