School activities play an important role in the lives of Meyzeek Middle School students and embody the mission, philosophy, and objectives of Meyzeek. They serve as a source of pride and are a showcase for the talents of our students. In addition, they provide opportunities for in-depth school community experiences.
School activities are an essential part of the education of students, because they foster the development of character, sportsmanship, risk taking, teamwork, and other life skills.
Participation in extracurricular activities at Meyzeek is voluntary and a privilege extended to those student athletes who are willing and able to make the commitment and meet the expectations of our athletic department.
Requirements for Athletes
JULY 2020 UPDATE --
To the JCPS Middle School Athletic Community: (Coaches, Players & Parents):
Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! Although things will be slightly different for a while, I hope you are as excited as I am to get back to offering some type of new normalcy for our student athletes and school communities.
As of now, I am pleased to announce that we are moving forward with the start of the 2020-2021 JCPS Middle School Athletics Fall season beginning on Monday, August 3rd. We are carefully preparing for the necessary changes and new adaptations to provide a safe, healthy and supportive environment for all of our Coaches, Players, Parents and Fans. ALL JCPS MS Athletic Directors and Coaches will be equipped with PPE, guideline instructions for COVID precautions as well as the regular heat acclimations and safety measures in place for a smooth transition to the start of practices. We recommend you ask parents and players to prepare for the season by contacting their Athletic Director at the school for any and all required documents and information on physicals which must be completed before student athletes will be allowed to practice or compete. Please ask that they familiarize themselves with current CDC guidelines as well as KHSAA guidelines and bring any required equipment with them, including: masks (we recommend having extra), their own personal water bottle marked with the student's name (consider a gallon for outside sports) and personal hand sanitizer or wipes. Some sites will have some of these items available for use or purchase but we ask that they bring their own if they can. NO athlete will be allowed to stay for practice if they don’t bring their own water to begin practice.
We appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate this new world together. We are confident we will be able to make this a memorable season with everyone’s help! Be safe; see you soon!
