7th & 8th Grade Soccer: 2022-2023
June 16, 2022
The Chelan Athletic Department is excited to announce the addition of boys and girls 7th and 8th grade middle school soccer to its extracurricular athletic offerings for the upcoming 2022-23 school year. The teams will compete in the NCW Middle School league, playing approximately 10 games. All practices and games will take place during the week, with no team functions on the weekends. The girls season will take place in the fall (August 30 first day of school & first practice), while the boys season will be in the spring. Students that are interested in participating in the middle school soccer program, or any athletic program offered by the Lake Chelan School District, will need to register through the school district’s athletic website, chelanathletics.com. Click on the “registration” tab at the top to register for the upcoming school year.
This is an especially exciting addition to the offerings at Chelan Middle School that should have a positive impact throughout the school and community. Recently, the school has been offering a 6th grade Co-Ed soccer program that has had very high participation numbers. There genuinely seems to be high interest from students and families for the school to offer soccer and this new offering should help connect more students to the school while supporting the high school soccer programs. The middle school soccer teams will play games at Mountain Goat Field, while practicing and training at the Community Gym Field and/or Mountain Goat Field.
As per WIAA and league rules, 6th graders will not be eligible to participate. However, the school does plan to continue to offer a 6th grade Co-Ed Intramural program in the spring.
The school will furnish uniforms and transportation for the teams. Students will be responsible for having proper soccer shoes and shin guards. However, there may be some assistance available for families that cannot afford the shoes or shin guards.
Please feel free to reach out to the Chelan Athletic office with any questions.
