Athletics

At DMC we believe that athletics should be an enjoyable experience for students that wish to take part. We place far less emphasis on the competitive side of sport, and more on the developmental and fun side of playing. For many of our athletes, middle level sports will be the last time they play a sport at the school level. Our philosophy on how we build our teams is that at the senior level we will give the greatest priority to grade 9 students. The exception to this is when we do not have a sufficient number of grade 9 students to field a team. At that point we would look to our younger grades to help fill spots on the team, beginning with grade 8. In addition, if we have a younger player that would be far better served by playing on a senior team due to their skill level, the decision could be made to place them on the senior team. This will be a case by case decision made by the athletic department in consultation with our administration, the student and the family. 

We firmly believe that our Grade 8's will and should lead our junior teams. This offers them the opportunity to provide their experience and leadership to our younger players. It will also serve to strengthen the junior program and build for our future senior program.  For those that are not able to make our junior team, we are working to build a developmental program that would give players a chance to play and practice, in the sport they enjoy. 

All of our teams are coached by volunteers, mostly teachers, that give up their personal time to work with our students. It is only because of their dedication and determination that we are able to offer athletics at the middle school level. 

Participation in Chimera Athletics requires both team forms and full payment of team fees. Chimera Athletes will not be excluded from athletics due to financial circumstances however, parents/guardians must contact administration to make alternative arrangements.
