At Woodard Jr. High, we encourage our students to participate in athletics. We offer a variety of competitive and intramural sports to participate in. We believe that the discipline required to be successful in athletics trains a young person to be self-disciplined in other areas. In addition, an active body is a healthy body, and that contributes to a healthy mind.
To participate in athletics, students must be passing all subjects. Teachers regularly report student progress to coaches. A student who is not passing in one or more subjects sits out the games while working to raise the grade. This teaches the student that academics are important. The student feels a sense of accomplishment as the grade returns to an acceptable level.
Please join us at athletics events to support your student and team.
