Boys and Girls Basketball


We are in need of volunteers to help coach teams for Boys JV and Varsity and Girls Varsity.  Volunteers must be Board approved.  Please contact Mr. Jerry Mentzer for more information.

The boys and girls basketball teams compete against other middle schools in the Salem County Rural League.  The basektball season begins in November with league playoffs starting in March.  Students compete on two levels:  5th and 6th grade play on the JV team, while the 7th and 8th grade students play at the Varsity level.  Game schedules and standings can be viewed on the league's website: scrlbasketball.com .  Students must complete a sports physical and be cleared by the school nurse before they can participate.

Athletic activities are voluntary and students who participate do not receive a grade for the activity.  Typically, extracurricular activities occur after school hours, but some may also occur during the school day. 

Eligibility requirements apply. Students must be passing all subjects if they are to participate in extracurricular activities.  Students who are failing a subject at the end of a marking period or when progress reports are completed, will be ineligible to participate until the next marking period.

Athletic activities are open to students in grades 5-8, and the Sports Physical Packet must be completed prior to participation.
