Hello, Three Rivers Middle School Families -

We are excited to see everyone very soon and want to be sure our student athletes are ready to go for fall sports when school starts. Game and meet schedules for cross country, football, and volleyball will be posted here on the school website as soon as they are available in early September. The fall sports season begins August 30th and ends October 22nd – exact practice dates and times will be shared directly to athletes by their coaches. Any Athletics related questions should be directed to our Athletics Director, Tommy Niebergall. You can reach him at [email protected] or 541-355-3049.

REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTSAll three steps are necessary in order to be fully registered and ready to go for cross country, football, or volleyball. Students may not participate in practices until they have all three steps completed and have been cleared through the office.

  1. Register through Family ID ONLINE. This is the only way to register – we do not have paper registration forms.
  2. Pay the Pay to Play fee ($40) ONLINE through TouchBase using your student’s ID #. If you don’t know your student’s ID #, call us in the office at 541-355-3000. If you are interested in a scholarship (covering up to $30 of the fee), please stop by the school office for an application.
  3. Sports physicals - all 6th and 7th grade students need a current sports physical (dated May 2021 or later). 8th graders only need a new one if they did NOT get one as a 7th grader.

If you're not sure if you have turned one in this year, call Tommy Niebergall at 541-355-3049 or email: [email protected]

FOOTBALL - Coach Nores is very excited for this year's football season. If you are planning to play on the TRS football team, please attend the upcoming Bend Parks and Rec football camp right here at Three Rivers.

CROSS COUNTRY - Coach Cammie Charles is back to head up our cross country team. She urges athletes interested in cross country to stay active throughout the summer. Get out and do some trail running - it's a short season so coming in with a good stamina base is important. Just a reminder to check out the Central Oregon Running Klub (CORK) she suggested in the previous email. For more information, please go to the website at: and click on Trail Camp. She also reminds athletes that properly fitting running shoes are essential for cross country. If help is needed to secure a good pair of shoes, please contact the school office.

BLS Athletic Plan

Three Rivers Middle School Athletics

Students will find a connection to athletic activities at Three Rivers. We want students to enjoy these sporting opportunities - to be part of a team, to work hard together with their teammates, to learn skills associated with particular sports, and to cultivate good sportsmanship. Many will continue on with these interests into high school. We encourage parents to actively support their children in both their academic and athletic pursuits.

  • Register through Family ID ONLINE. This is the only way to register. Registration opens a couple weeks prior to each season.
  • Pay the Pay to Play* fee ($40) ONLINE using your student's account on TouchBase. Or you may stop by the school and pay with cash, check or credit card. If you are interested in a scholarship (covering up to $30 of the fee), please stop by the school office for an application. (*NO PAY TO PLAY FEE THIS YEAR)
  • Sports physicals - all 6th and 7th grade students need a current sports physical (dated May of the previous year or later). 8th graders only need one if they did NOT get one as a 7th grader. Be sure to bring a copy to the school office. Sports physical form

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.

Sports Physicals

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 and take it to your child's sports physical appointment:

English or Spanish

When you have completed the sports physical, be sure to turn it in to the school.

Middle School Athletic Philosophy

We believe that athletic participation provides a unique opportunity to fulfill many of the personal, social and physical needs common to middle school youth. Participation in appropriate competitive athletics increases one's 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 our youth in developing the confidence and ability to make good choices both on and off the playing fields.

Through dedication, effort and practice, our youth will develop athletic skills and attitudes that will contribute to personal success, as well as team accomplishments. Our goal is to develop lifelong learners who enjoy and participate in a variety of healthy activities.

Central Oregon Middle School Athletic Policies

Middle schools in the Bend-La Pine School District 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 school office.

Code of Conduct

Any student who participates in school-sponsored athletics or activities must agree to abide by the School District Board Policies, Administrative Rules, Code of Conduct, building rules, and team participation/training contracts. All students who participate in athletics and extracurricular activities are expected to be positive role models for other students and members of the community. Students should demonstrate good conduct at school and in the community at all times.
