High Desert Middle School
Students will find a connection to athletic activities in which they can participate and find enjoyment during their middle and high school careers. We encourage parents to actively support their children in both their academic and athletic pursuits.
Parents of students wishing to participate in athletics register online using FamilyID. FamilyID is a secure, user-friendly online registration platform that streamlines the application process and allows parents to enter information once for multiple family members and athletic teams. Please be aware that you cannot sign up through your phone or tablet, you must be on a desktop or laptop to register through FamilyID.
To participate, athletes must complete the following:
* Register through FamilyID
* Have a valid physical on file at the school
Sports physicals are required for athletes competing in 6th grade 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 need to be completed prior to the sports season and not before May 1st of the summer before the current academic year. Please be sure to print out the OSAA School Sports Pre-Participation Examination form (osaa.org English/Spanish) and take it to your child's sports physical appointment. When you have completed the sports physical, please turn it in to the school.

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.
