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.


    • All students entering as sixth graders are eligible to participate in sports on a space available basis.
    • All seventh and eighth grade students are eligible for athletic participation in the fall.
    • Students remain eligible until they accrue two Ns (determined by end-of-course grades each quarter).
    • Student athletes who are truant from class will not be allowed to participate.
    • Student athletes must be in school by 10:30 AM in order to participate.

    All Forms for Fall sports must be turned in by 2:15 pm on Friday, September 9.  If all of the registration forms are not in by 2:15pm students cannot participate in a fall sport.

    There is a $45 sports fee for each sport that an athlete participates in.  This must be paid before the student can practice or play.  If you are eligible for free and reduced lunch the fee is $30.

    Return all completed forms to the box on the counter in the main office.

    Below are the registration forms for spring sports.  You must complete the registration form and contract.  If you have already completed the MSHSL Statement this year you do not need to fill it out again.  If you haven't, it must be completed and turned in with your registration.  Please make sure you have a sports physical on file with the nurses office.

    Return all completed forms to the box on the counter in the main office.
