Middle Division Sports

Be Part of a Team


Increasing confidence, cooperation, and sportsmanship are an integral part of our athletics program. Beyond the development of physical skills, students begin to understand commitment, experience growth in character, and learn to work together as a team. Our goal is to teach, develop, and maintain a positive competitive environment built upon the principles of our “I CARE” System. The I. C.A.R.E. system represents five principles: Integrity, Commitment, Accountability, Respect, and Effort. 

All participants must follow the guidelines and expectations set forth in the NGFS Athletic Handbook.

Our Middle Division program is for students in grades 5-8. Five sports are currently offered, with the potential for growth as student interest allows. All teams are co-ed.

Sports Include:

  • Cross Country
  • Soccer
  • Flag Football
  • Volleyball
  • Basketball
