Welcome to Murray Athletics

Welcome to Murray Middle School Athletics

Murray Middle is proud to have a no cut policy. We are able to support A and B teams in all sports.  A-teams play the schedule currently posted on the district site.  Once all the schools complete registrations for all players, those schools with enough players will have B teams.  At that point we will complete the game schedule for our B teams.  Coaches will provide students a copy of the game schedule once finalized.

In order for athletes to participate on St. Paul Public School teams, student must have a sports physical on file with the nurse here at Murray Middle School. Physical exam forms can be found on the FORMS tab.  All students must be academically eligible to play sports at St Paul Middle Schools.  Students-athletes at Murray are students first.  In order to play, students must pass classes.  Player's are no longer eligible once they have failed two classes at any point in the school year.  A student failing two classes in the fall quarter cannot play the rest of the school year.  This is a district policy.   It is important for all students to start the year strong academically and continue all year long.  

All players will be provided with a jersey.  At the preseason meeting, students will be informed about any other required uniform expectations like certain shorts, colors, shoes, etc.  If you have a need for support, please contact me. If there are any questions please email me.

Athletics can be a positive aspect of every student’s school experience.  We as coaches and parents make sports a wonderful experience by helping our players understand that sports is a positive, fun, and a great growth experience.  Let’s all have a great year.  Hope to see you at a game, soon.
