Athletics at Denny
Denny International Middle School is a wonderfully diverse school, offering several sports. In keeping with our motto, “We All Belong,” 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 learningand/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: 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: The activity bus will be in the bus zone at Denny at 4:30 p.m. OST registration is required for activity bus transportation.
