Welcome to Highland Park Athletics

  • The HPMS athletics department believes that sport programs should provide opportunities to develop skills, practice teamwork, and have fun, with a goal to win. While teaching athletic skills, HPMS coaches are also teaching responsibility, sportsmanship, social skills, and hard work.

    How do I register for a sport?

    Students need to complete FOUR forms in order to register for a Middle School sport:
