Middle School Sports
CCDS is proud to offer an athletic program for our 6-8th grade students. The CCDS Eagles are proud competitors in cross country, volleyball, basketball and soccer. If you have questions on our sports programs, please contact our Athletic Director, Jordan Williams.
A Sports Release and Athletic Waiver must be submitted annually for each sport your student participates in. These forms will be made available prior to each sports season, and can be returned to the middle school office or to your coach directly. Additionally, students are expected to adhere to our sports eligibility policy, which can be found in the information below.
Please refer to our sports calendar for scheduled practices and games for all sports:
