Middle School Athletics

Open Window School is a part of the Cascade Middle School League and compete against other local independent middle schools in the following sports: 
  
Fall – Cross Country, Girls Volleyball, and Soccer 
Winter – Boys and Girls Basketball 
Spring – Tennis, Track & Field, and Ultimate Frisbee 
  
Athletic Philosophy 
Participation in our Middle School athletics allows students in grades 5-8 to develop physical skills, learn game strategies, and most importantly, put into practice the concepts of commitment, teamwork, and good sportsmanship.  

Participation 
At Open Window School we want to provide opportunities for our students to try as many sports as possible and develop their skill level in each. Students of all abilities are encouraged to register and we guarantee playing time for all our athletes. Our coaches are teachers at the school and have been coaching here for multiple seasons. They fully understand the needs of our students. 

For our team sports we try to schedule matches against schools with students who have similar skill levels to ours to make the matches as competitive as possible.  

Students are transported to and from away meets and matches by bus. 

Length of Season 
Each Middle School season is between 8-10 weeks in length. We have shorter seasons to allow students to participate in multiple sports/activities throughout the year, and still allow enough time to improve their skills, make friends, play competitive matches, and have fun.  

Level of Commitment 
Students must attend at least one day of our two scheduled days per week. If students cannot commit to both days, they must communicate this information to the coach and Athletic Director. 

Cost to Participate 
The cost of each sport is $220. There is an additional uniform cost of $65 for students who have not been a part of one of our Middle School athletic teams. 
Open Window School provides a challenging academic curriculum blended with nurturing support from teachers that prepares students for long-term success.
