Middle-school students invited to play sports

Posted August 7, 2023

Area students can register now to be part of 2023-24 Riverview Middle School athletic teams!

These opportunities, coordinated by Plymouth School District Community Education & Recreation, are open to all area middle-school students, including those who are homeschooled or attending parochial schools.

With the exceptions of Dance Team and Golf, these are interscholastic programs, where Riverview teams travel to compete with area middle schools. Most teams practice after school at Riverview, 300 Riverside Circle.

The following teams begin shortly after school starts. Informational meetings are open to players and/or parents/guardians.

Students must be registered before they can participate, via the MyRec registration system. (Parents/guardians will need to create a MyRec account, if they do not already have one.) In addition, all participants must have a Physical Evaluation Form on file signed by a doctor after March 31, 2022. Fee is $20 per sport (plus a $50 greens fee for Golf).

Attention grades 5 and 6: Riverview offers Intramural Sports & Activities, which provides a variety of physical activities for students of all skill level without the pressure to compete and win. The first session begins Sept. 19; watch for registration information soon after school starts.

We also will be offering Intramural Dance and Intramural Tennis again this school year. Watch for more information!
