What Does Rebuilding Stronger Mean For Middle School Athletics In IPS?…

A Better Sports Experience for IPS Middle School Students

More sports being offered to our middle school students. Increased enrollment in each of our district-managed middle schools means all of our middle schools will be able to offer each sport that IPS Athletics facilitates. View the list of sports that will be offered at IPS middle schools below.

Extended middle school season, meaning for practices and games for students to develop their skills and stay engaged in their sports.

Greater connections to our high school coaches and programs will help prepare our middle school student athletes for the next level of competition, making for an easier transition into high school athletics.

Continued development of our IPS Trailblazers club program for high level middle school student athletes who want an affordable option to continue playing their favorite sport outside of the school season.

Improved Outdoor Athletics Facilities

IPS is currently in the process of upgrading the outdoor athletics facilities at our 2024-2025SY middle school sites, ensuring that our student athletes have access to quality athletics facilities that are safe and appealing as they prepare to participate at the high school level.
