Update Re: After School Athletics

See below for an informational letter distributed to families by the SDUSD Athletics Department regarding changes to the SDUSD after-school athletics program. For more information, please feel free to contact Lonnie Jones - Coordinator, SDUSD Middle School Athletics, at 619-725-7440 or [email protected]

Dear San Diego Unified Families,

Due to the challenges with regards to the heat temperatures this past week, the Athletics Department has adjusted the timeline for the fall middle school athletics season. To ensure all sites/coaches are given equitable time to evaluate student athletes, we are allowing an additional week of tryouts/practices during the week of September 12th through the 16th. This time will be utilized as extended evaluation time by coaching staffs to select the team that will represent your middle school in its respective sport of basketball or track.

The practice times at your middle school for next week can be found on this Middle School Tryout Practice Schedule. If you do not see your middle school listed, it means there were not enough sign ups to field a team. If you see a box with an “X” in it, that indicates there is no practice on that day.

Based on the adjusted timeline, the announcement of teams will be posted on the SDUSD Middle School Athletics website at https://sdusdathletics.com/middle-schools/ on Sunday, September 18th.

By announcing teams on that date it allows each middle school to have two regularly scheduled practices with their teams the week of September 19-23rd.

The full season of scheduled contests with times and locations will be released September 19th with our first contests taking place on Saturday, September 24th.

There are 15 spots per team and thus finalizing a roster is always a challenging time for every coach. We encourage you to have your student attend both days next week thus giving the coach a chance to assess each player’s ability.

We are looking forward to an exciting year of Middle School Athletics.

In partnership,

Athletics, PE and Health Department
