Good Afternoon Parents and Student Athletes of Region 13,

I hope all of you are enjoying some rest and relaxation this summer.  What a changing athletic world the 2020-2021 school year was!  We went from fall and winter sports being cancelled at the middle school, to spring sports giving it a successful go.  What a State Championship run we had at CRHS last Spring!  SY 2020-2021 was quite the rollercoaster ride!  I’m hopeful that SY 2021-2022 will be returning to normal.
I’d like all of you of some important fall sport information and our fall sport registration link for Family ID.  Here is our link and contact information for Fall sport coaching staff on my athletic website at Fall Sports at Strong Middle School.
Important - In order to TRYOUT for a fall sport you will have to register your child for that sport under our Family ID registration PRIOR to beginning training.  Please click on the following link or check out my athletic website for “How to Join a Sport at Strong MS and Forms.”.
Important - Please note that in order to begin any school based sport, you MUST be registered under Family ID.  Please turn in any updated physical examination at your earliest convenience, however you will NOT be permitted to begin that said sport’s practice without a valid physical examination on file.  All Physical Medical Examinations MUST be submitted to the CRHS Nurse’s office in hard copy form and can be dropped off in the main office.  Please make sure this is accomplished 3 weekdays PRIOR to the start of tryouts.  Here is a list of TENTATIVE sport practice start dates:
The following sports ALL begin on / around the same date of Tuesday September 7th.  All of the following sports are open for ALL 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students to try out for.  Please note - due to higher number of participants trying out, cuts may have to be done.  Please note - All updated physicals should be dropped off to Strong Middle School Nurse in the mailbox of our School Nurse (Hardcopy ONLY) no later than Friday September 3rd.
  • Boys Cross Country - September 7th 
  • Girls Cross Country - September 7th
  • Boys Soccer - September 7th
  • Girls Soccer - September 7th
We will be sharing more specific conditioning / practice information and schedules with all of you very shortly, if not already.  I look forward to seeing all of the student athletes on the field very soon!
I hope this website is helpful to you. If you have a questions or cannot locate information, please do not hesistate to contact us in the Athletic department.  While I will be in the Athletic Office periodically throughout the summer, my assistant - Sue Mediavilla will be in the athletic office to assist you as well.  I’m looking forward to a great Fall season!
Go Blue Devils!
