Welcome back! I hope everyone has had a wonderful summer!!
I am David Eshaya, Physical Education teacher here at Haven Middle School and the Athletic Director. All questions in regards to Boy and Girl's: Basketball, Volleyball, and Soccer, please refer your questions to me.
District 65 offers Boy's and Girl's (6th, 7th and 8th grade): Basketball, Volleyball, Soccer, Cross-Country and Track & Field. **Please see below for tryout dates** Once the district sends the game schedules to me, the coaches can put together practice schedules and will be sent out and posted. Also, all sports have "cuts," depending on the number of kids trying-out, we do not keep every kid trying out or that are registered. Each sport has a 6th grade team, a JV or Varsity. Typically 3 teams for basketball and volleyball (6th grade team, JV and Varsity) and soccer has a JV and Varsity team. (yes there are 'cuts' in all the sports)
Depending on our numbers trying-out will determine how the district wants to disperse the teams. All this information will be sent to you, once I get more information from the district. (Commitment days are typically Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays), some Thursdays will be thrown in. (Commitment days are Mon-Thursday) Practices are usually after school until 4:30pm. There will be some practices that start at 6:30am, depending on gym availability. (Game days range 3:30pm start time 4:30pm or 5:30pm depending on which team you are on. (more info once the tryouts have been completed)
BUSSES: Students are required to take the bus to and from games, from Haven and back to Haven. They cannot take their own bikes or walk to games. Parents/Guardians can pick their kids up from games, all we ask is that you communicate and sign your kid out with the coaches. You can also carpool other kids, as long as the coach is communicated with.
FEES: Each student that participates pays an $80 fee per sport. If you are on free or reduced lunch, the district provides a scholarship. We do not have an electronic payment system. (Checks, cash or money orders made out to district65).
Uniforms: Uniforms are provided, but must be returned at the end of the season. Lost or damaged uniforms are subject to an $80 replacement fee.
Sports Equipment: Boys & Girls Soccer: You need your own cleats and shin guards - We provide uniforms (read above) Boys & Girls Volleyball: You need your own athletic shoes. Knee pads are optional.
