Greetings athletes and families,
Here at Flood Middle School, we offer competitive after school athletic teams that compete against other middle schools in our area. Please see the information below to answer any of your questions.
1. What sports are offered?
-Fall Season (September to Nov): Boys and Girls Cross Country
-Winter Season (November to February): Boys and Girls Basketball, Boys and Girls Dance
-Spring Season (March to June): Boys and Girls Track and Field
2. When is practice?
-Practice is held on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 2:45pm-3:45pm. On occasion, coaches may schedule a Monday practice. See below for more info.
3. Transportation for practices?
-During practices, there are late buses that can take athletes home. Both middle schools offers late buses for those who stay after school for any extra activity such as homework help, practice, etc. The 3:45pm late bus only runs on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. If an athlete is getting picked up from practice, they must get picked up at the back entrance of the school near the tennis courts promptly at 3:45pm.
4. Transportation for games/meets?
-During games, athletes will be transported to the contest using our district bus company. The bus will also drive them back to school after the contest. On days where there is a contest, all athletes must be picked up at the back entrance of Flood near the tennis courts as the contest will end after the 3:45pm late buses. We will encourage athletes to communicate with home on when the team is expected back at the school. In the event of a home game, athletes will still need to be picked up as contests conclude after the late buses have departed.
5. Scheduled Monday Practice?
-Coaches may decide to add a Monday practice if need be. In this instance, a 5pm sports bus will be ordered and take athletes to their nearest Elementary school. Coaches will notify athletes and families in a timely manner if there is any needed Monday practices. Please note that this practice will last until 5pm and that athletes will walk home from their nearest elementary school.
-Closer to their first contest, all athletes will be issued their sport specific jersey/uniform. It is the responsibility of the athlete and family to launder and return this jersey/uniform at the end of the season.
7. Sport Registration:
How do I join a team?
In order to sign up for an athletic team, the families of the child must fill out an electronic form on their parent portal to register their child. Powerschool has a section called e-forms that allows families to complete an electronic form. We, at the middle school level, will be using "Powerschool" to sign up for all athletic teams. A registration will immediately have the "PENDING" status until processed by the director of athletics.
Why do we have to sign up for this?
This online registration is the same process that both Bunnell and Stratford High school athletic programs use to register.
Do I need to fill out the same information every season?
The great thing about the online process is that powerschool can pull most of the important information we need for athletics straight from your account! As always, there may be the need to update expired or outdated information such as new athletic physicals, change of address, etc.
Why is only one season open to register?
Only current sports are discoverable and as we get closer to the next season registration will open for those specific sports.
How do I register?
If a student is interested in athletics at the middle school level, their families can fill out an e-collect form on their Parent Portal for their child.
Trouble getting online?
Families should attempt to fill out an electronic form through Powerschool and if there is any issues they can always contact the school for assistance.
Any further questions, please contact the schools main office or the coach of that sport season. Have a great year!
