As I am sure you all have heard the Holmes gym is not to be used at this time.  I want to thank all of our coaches, staff, and the other schools in the YCAL league for helping us work this all out so that we can still compete in our current seasons.


BASKETBALL: Coaches have communicated current practice times to their teams.

Currently all GAMES are AWAY.  This means that we will need help with driving our athletes and please remember that all the schools (with the exception of Davis schools) will charge gate at the door $3/2.


Thurs November 29th     Holmes @ CA Jacobs

Tues December 4th        Holmes @ Winters

Thurs December 6th       Holmes @ Emerson

Tues December 11th      Holmes @ Harper

Thurs December 13th     Holmes @ Lee    *this is the last game of the 7th grade season.


8TH GRADE: Please listen to the bulletin for your team meetings that will happen BEFORE your season starts.  Make sure that you have all your athletic paperwork completed and turned in online and that you have turned in your current physical form to the office.



Wrestling practice has not been affected by the gym closure.  However, we do need to change two of our Dual Meets that were originally going to be held at Holmes.  Updated meet information below.  Athletes will be released from class at 2:45.  This means that we will need help with driving our athletes and please remember that all the schools (with the exception of Davis schools) will charge gate at the door $3/2.


Wednesday December 5th  @ DOUGLASS

Wednesday December 19th @ ESPARTO


In the event that we need to make more changes, please check back or ask your coach.


As always, please email me with any questions that you may have.  We are hoping to be back in the Holmes gym soon and we thank you for your flexibility.

Hello Parents and Athletes!

We are very excited for a new year of Athletics at Holmes Junior High.  We have some changes this year, so please make sure to read over the website so that you do not miss important  new information, dates, and requirements. 

The Winter sports parent meeting will take place on Wednesday, October 24th at 6pm in the Holmes Gym.  At that time we will meet as a group first, and then you will break off with your specific team for a parent meeting to meet your coach.  The Davis Junior High Athletic Expectation Sheet is available on the Athletics page for you to read.  Make sure to sign and return the Cleared to Participate form (both parent/guardian and student) once you have completed the new online registration (link is at the top of the Athletics Website) print the cleared to participate form and return to your coach.  This along with your online Physical Athletic Packet and current Athletic Physical with a Doctor signature is due before anyone can participate in a practice.


The online or hardcopy paperwork deadline and cut off for WINTER SPORTS (7th and 8th grade girls and boys basketball AND wrestling) is October 19th.  Official first practice is Monday, October 22nd.  If your paperwork is not in by Friday the 19th of October, you will not be allowed to participate in the winter sports season.  

We are so excited to have you participating in athletics this year at HOLMES!  Please let me know if you  have any questions.

*Please get your online paperwork in early.  All paperwork is valid for 1 school year only.  Each student needs to turn in paperwork ONCE every year even if they play multiple sports.  You do NOT need to turn in an athletic packet for every sport, but you do need to turn in a new emergency card for every sport played. Emergency cards are handed out at the first practice.
