• Athletics In Mad River Local Schools

    Elementary School & Spinning Hills (5-6)

    There are no organized athletic programs provided by the district at the Elementary school level and Spinning Hills Middle School. Enrichment classes may be offered after school in some buildings and some of them may be an athletic or game type class (e.g. dance, yoga, running club, etc.). These classes vary and are decided by the building principal.  Please check with the City of Riverside for organized sports opportunities. 

    Middle School

    The district offers sports programs to all students in grades 7-8.   Emphasis is placed on skill development, sportsmanship, and team play. Prior to participation, a student must have a current physical form and a signed parent permission slip on file in the office; and the required activity fee must be paid. Students participating in middle school athletics are expected to display exemplary citizenship at all times. Failure to display appropriate citizenship and sportsmanship may result in loss of playing time and/or expulsion from the athletic program.  Students are also expected to maintain defined academic standards.  Teachers will monitor student grades, and will communicate with the coaches concerned regarding academic difficulties. The coaching staff will develop plans to aid students in their efforts to meet acceptable standards.
