Athletics

Walnut Creek Middle School Logo

We are excited to offer a wide variety of athletic experiences for our students. The beginning of each year affords us the opportunity to reflect on past achievements with pride and look ahead to accomplishments in the classroom and on the athletic field during the upcoming year. We recognize and appreciate our parents for their many contributions and the exemplary modeling they provide our students. Thank you for your continued support!

Transportation

Athletes will only be transported to their competition with no return transportation. This is for all games both in-district and out-of-district. Athletes will need to arrange their own transportation home after a sporting event. The coach will need a note indicating who the athlete will be riding home with, if it is not their parent or guardian.

All student-athletes must be picked up within 15 minutes from the time practice/game ended. Exceptions will not be made. Having a ride daily is a prerequisite for participating in athletics.

Additional Information

  • All athletes must have a combination lock to secure their belongings in the locker room. Ensuring one's belongings is a personal responsibility, not the schools. We provide a locker to utilize for each athlete.

  • Daily Behavior Expectation - We value academics and athletics, but we always put academics first. Any student-athlete, having a disciplinary violation in school will not be permitted to attend athletics that day. This includes practices and competitions.

  • The use of any illegal substance as stated by the district code of conduct, will not be tolerated. Violation will result in removal from the team.

  • In the classroom, on the field of play and in the community, Walnut Creek Hawks will always demonstrate good sportsman ship and Hawk Pride.

POSITIVE ATTITUDE - RESPECT - INTEGRITY - DETERMINATION - ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE
