Cascade Middle School
Please check back on this page throughout the summer for updates on fall sports. Thank you for your patience as we may not have clear guidelines for fall sports until the beginning of August or later. This page will be updated as we get more information.
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.
Note: 6th grade football and volleyball registration is through Bend Park & Recreation (BPRD).
The following three requirements must be completed before your athlete will be eligible to participate in practices and events for the 2019-20 school year.
Sports physicals are required for all 6th grade students competing in Bend-La Pine Schools athletics. Please note that Bend Park & Recreation District (BPRD) may have different requirements. 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.
Bend-La Pine Schools require students to attend school ALL day on the day of an athletic event (excluding an absence due to a doctor or dentist appointment) or they will not be allowed to participate.
Busing is provided to events in Bend during the school week, but parents/guardians are responsible for their athlete's transportation home after the event. For events OUTSIDE of Bend during the school week, busing is provided TO and FROM the event (i.e., La Pine and Redmond).

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.
Bend-La Pine Schools' middle schools compete with other middle schools in the Central Oregon areas. All Central Oregon middle schools use the guidelines outlined by the C.O. Middle School Standard Operating Procedures for Athletics. These procedures are available in the counseling office.
