Develop Student-Athletes, Honor Teamwork, Compete Well
 
NEWS & UPDATES:
 
Update (3/2/2021):  Check out our new online schedule via ArbiterLive.  It has all of our games and meets for 7th volleyball and cross country.   
 
Update (2/24/2021): Starting March 1, will be combining A & B cohorts for 7th Girls Volleyball.  This means that they will practice and play games 4 days a week on Monday-Thursday.  Please see the Attestation information outlined below.  Cross Country will NOT be combining cohorts.
 
UPDATE (2/23/2021): If your student is attending practice on a non-cohort day they will need to complete the following paper attestation OR the digital attestation (provide proof w/ phone pic) prior to being admitted to practice.
If an attestation is not presented, a coach or athletic director will take their temperature and complete the survey.  Students showing a fever or any COVID related symptoms will be asked to go home.  Please do not send your student to practice if they are not feeling well.
 
If your daughter or son has had a positive diagnosis for COVID-19 at ANY TIME during the school year, you will need to provide a sign doctor's release confirming that they are safe to return to athletic activities.
 
UPDATE (2/11/2021): Please register your student-athlete for their sports, regardless of season, as soon as possible and avoid choosing 2 sports in the same season.  Our registration numbers determine our game/practice schedules, coaching positions, and how we can utilize our facilities.  Last minute registration has the potential to cause multiple issues for our program and your child’s ability to participate on the first day of the season.
 

Activity Bus Access Must Be Reserved

Activity buses will be available for athletes that need a ride after practices.  Pick-up time at Northwood will be at 5:00pm.  All athletes will have an assigned seat and must wear a mask.  Failure to comply or other misconduct will result in loss of activity bus privileges.  If you wish to register for the activity bus, please complete the following survey:

"RULES" for our MODIFIED seasons:
  • All eligibility, registration, & physical requirements remain the same as previous years.
  • Athletic participation and ASB fees will be waived for the year (this does not include Spirit Packs).
  • Each season will follow the guidelines provided by WIAA regarding the recommended number of practices and contests.
  • Contests will take place between the three Mead School District middle school athletic programs in the event that we reach Phase 2 in the reopening plan.
  • Varsity and JV squads will have an opportunity to compete if we reach Phase 2 in the reopening plan.
  • If WIAA has not given the clearance to compete or a season is cancelled, the season WILL NOT be rescheduled for later in the year.  However, if part of a season can be made up during that season’s scheduled calendar dates, as much of the season will be recovered as possible.
  • Our sports offerings have been categorized into 3 groups:
    • Track & Cross Country = low risk
    • Volleyball, Softball, & Baseball = moderate
    • Wrestling, Basketball, & Football = high risk
  • Unfortunately, we do not anticipate having a basketball or wrestling season in the 2020-21 school year.
 
Game schedules will be sent out by coaches and will be available on the Northwood Athletic Calendar on our website.

District Athletic Philosophy
The philosophy of the Mead School District is founded and based upon the principles identified in the district’s foundational student learning goals. Included in this mission is the belief that human wellness and aesthetic experiences are integral parts of the educational experience. To serve that mission, the primary function of the interscholastic and intramural programs is to provide participatory opportunities for as many students as possible. These programs seek to enhance the psychological, emotional, social, and physical development of each student.
 
The Mead School District believes that participation in athletic programs can enhance the development of the values of cooperation, honesty, sportsmanship, responsibility, respect, perseverance, and commitment. Students will be encouraged to develop their athletic skills and compete to the best of their abilities. The Mead School District is obligated to provide a supportive environment in which students can pursue athletic experiences that maximize their potential. While individual achievements are valued and encouraged, team achievements are of primary importance. Athletics, in addition, can make significant contributions to the educational experience of all Mead students, faculty, staff, and district patrons through the cultivation and enhancement of community.
