Wheeler Middle School is proud to have an extracurricular sports program. The LOA Program (Learning Opportunities Academy) may include the following sports: cheerleading, volleyball, basketball, soccer and track. Usually there is one team for cheerleading and track, two teams for soccer, and four teams for volleyball and basketball – 6th/7th grade girls, 6th/7th grade boys, 8th grade girls, and 8th grade boys.
Typically, the seasons are as follows:
• Cheerleading (throughout the year)
• Volleyball (1st & 2nd Quarter)
• Basketball (2nd & 3rd Quarter)
• Soccer (3rd & 4th Quarter)
• Track (4th Quarter)
Announcements for tryouts are placed in the school’s morning bulletin. Games are scheduled among middle school teams in Central District.
Any student may try out for a team; those selected must pay their student dues and maintain a 2.0 (or higher) grade point average, with passing grades in all classes and an “S” in exploratory wheel. Grade checks are to be done on a regular basis during the sports season.
It is a privilege for students to represent the school; consequences for academic and behavioral infractions, including suspension, range from game ineligibility to dismissal from the team.
The following is the Volley Schedule for this season.
