Aki Kurose Athletics
Aki Kurose Middle School is a wonderfully diverse school, offering several sports. Any student who wants to participate in a sport will have a chance to learn and play. All teams promote teamwork and togetherness in working towards a common goal. Effort, determination, good sportsmanship and scholarship (2.0 or above GPA) are a must for those wishing to participate in sports.
Teams: For all sports, there is a Varsity team for more experienced players and a JV team for those learning and/or building skills. Coaches place players on teams based on skill.
Practice Days: Overall, practice days and times for each sport are determined by the coach. Practices are typically twice a week. Practices are scheduled during the week right after school and can fall on any weekday except Wednesday. See individual sports below for specific practice times, which are posted once they are available,
Transportation for games: Please contact Athletic Director email@example.com for transportation info during the pandemic. (Pre-pandemic: A bus is provided by the district to and from games. Players may ride with a parent/guardian if the coach is notified. Parents/guardians are highly encouraged to attend games to support their scholars.)
Transportation after practice: Please contact Athletic Director firstname.lastname@example.org
Spectators at Games
As we move forward with the middle school basketball season, parent or school volunteers will have the opportunity to stream the game. If you have any concerns please contact your building leader or Athletic Coordinator.
Requirements to Participate in Sports
Forms: All forms needed for participation can be found on the district Student-Athlete Forms page.
Physicals: A physical in the last 24 months is required for all sports. The physical is then good for 24 calendar months. Your scholar’s doctor can fill out the SPS physical form based on the last wellness exam or physical if it was within the last 24 months. If your scholar needs a physical, the Aki Kurose Wellness Center here at the school provides them free of charge. An appointment must be made for a sports physical. To make an appointment, call 206-326-2141.
Health Insurance: A scholar must have health insurance to play a sport. If not covered by a parent/guardian’s insurance plan, insurance can be purchased through SPS: SPS Student Insurance Enrollment.
Congratulations to the Ultimate Frisbee 6th grade squad for making it to the Ultimate Finals. They played their hearts out and although they came up just one point short, they represented themselves and the Aki community like champions both on and off the field.
