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.
