Mission Statement of Athletics:
Blackmon Road Middle School interscholastic athletics provide an opportunity for the entire student body to demonstrate school spirit and positive citizenship. Our philosophy is to foster excellence through educational and competitive experiences in an atmosphere of sportsmanship and integrity. The health and well-being of our student athletes is our primary consideration and is always more important than the outcome of an athletic contest. We expect each of our student athletes to conduct themselves with dignity and decorum at all times. Interscholastic athletic participation is secondary to the student’s academic responsibilities. Practices and games are scheduled to avoid conflict with the academic class schedule, and a balance must be maintained between the demands of a competitive athletic program and the challenging academic schedule that all middle school students carry. Interscholastic athletes
Interscholastic athletics is a privilege that carries with it responsibilities to the school, the team, the community, and the students. Student athletes will conduct themselves in accordance with all the policies, rules and regulations of the Muscogee County School District as a requisite for participation in any interscholastic athletic program.
