Welcome to the DeWitt Middle School athletic page for Track
Track is for 7th and 8th grade students only. Sign ups will begin around March 2nd and continue until the first practice, which will be held Monday, March 16. Normal practice time is from 2:50-4:30! To participate, students must have a current physical card on file in our main office. There is also a sports fee of $150 that must be paid prior to the first meet. Students that have previously played on a DeWitt Middle School sports team, this school year, have already met the requirement of a physical card and sports fee and do not have to submit anything else to be able to participate in track.
We appreciate your continued commitment to support our student athletes in maintaining strong academics and his or her growth as a leader, team player and athlete on the field. It is our intent to provide all of the information you need to navigate your families journey through our athletic, arts, and academic programs. Should you have a suggestion, please email DeWitt Middle School Athletic Director Eric Wieferich at firstname.lastname@example.org
