Cascade Middle School

Students will find a connection to athletic activities in which they can participate and find enjoyment during their middle school years. We encourage parents to actively support their children in both their academic and athletic pursuits.
The following three requirements must be completed before your athlete will be eligible to participate in practices and events for the 2018-19 school year.
Physicals are required for all athletes. Please download and print the required OSAA Sports Physical Form below and take it to your child's sports physical appointment. Turn the form in to the school Main Office once both Parts 1 & 2 have been completed. Forms - English / Spanish
Sports physicals are required for all 6th grade students competing in athletics. Students who continue to participate in extracurricular sports after 6th grade must complete a physical exam in grades 7, 9, and 11 or if this is their first time participating with a Bend-La Pine Schools team. All physicals must be completed prior to the sports season, but not before May 1st of the summer before the current academic year.
If you would like to help as a volunteer with our athletic programs, please email the coach of the sport you're interested in volunteering for to verify you have met the eligibility requirements.
Busing to games is provided to and from the games OUTSIDE of Bend during the school week. Busing is also provided to games in Bend during the school week, but parents are responsible for their child's transportation home after the game.

We believe that athletic participation provides a unique opportunity to fulfill man of the personal, social and physical needs common to middle school youth. Participation in appropriate competitive athletics increases an individuals’ sense of personal worth, self-discipline, respect and fair play, which can carry over into daily problem solving through life.
Coaches, teachers and parents have a shared responsibility to help guide, nurture and support youth in developing the confidence, skills and attitudes that will enable hem to make good choices on and off the playing fields.
Through dedication, effort and practice, our youth will develop athletic skills determination and attitudes that will contribute to personal success as well as team goals. Our goal is to develop lifelong learners who enjoy and participate in a variety of healthful activities.
