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.

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 at this link: Student Insurance Enrollment.

General Information

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.
