Please take a look at the Parent's Code of Conduct below.  Good sportsmanship by our athletes, coaches, and fans will be a big area of emphasis this year!

Spring Sports at HMMS

Hi folks, I hope this message finds you all safe and healthy.  

The Hartford Middle School offers several spring sports options - Baseball and Softball (for 7th and 8th grade only) and Track and Field (grades 6/78) are our primary competitive sports for middle schoolers.  We also offer Tennis as a non-competition club sport.  Spring sports are scheduled to start pre-season activities on or after March 25.  Team coaches will decide the extent to which teams will conduct indoor training sessions until the outdoor fields are available.

You are reminded that middle school athletes must have health insurance and must also have a current Well Exam on file with the school.  The Well Exam needs to be recorded on the approved HSD Well Exam form which can be printed out from the school website.  

Signups are now done through the same system that we use to record grades, attendance, and all of the other administrative student information - INFINITE CAMPUS.  If you do not have an Infinite Campus account, please contact Rena Burnett (burnettL@hartfordschools.net) to have one set up for you.  This is a completely different registration platform from the one used previously and it is not the same as the one used by the Hartford Rec Dept.

Please contact Joe James if you have any questions about any of the sports we offer or if you have any  difficulty registering.

Take care, and STAY WELL!  
___________

Just a reminder that each athlete must have a Well Exam within the last year.  You can print out the form by selecting the Well Exam link on this page.  Please be sure to take a blank copy of the HSD Well Exam form with you to your appointment...it can be printed out from the Athletics webpage.  You should then send your current exam form to the Athletic Office (cookem@hartfordschools.net).

 

Parent Code of Conduct 

1. Will refrain from coaching their child or other players during games and practices.

2. Will respect the officials and their authority during games and will never question, discuss or confront coaches at the game field, and will take time to speak to coaches at an agreed upon time and place.

3. Will remember that student athletes participate to have fun and that the game is for youth, not adults.

 
4. Will help teach their child that doing one's best is more important than winning, so that my child will never feel defeated by the outcome of a game or his or her performance.
 
5. Will demand that their child treat other players, coaches, officials, and spectators with respect.
 
6. Will promote the emotional and physical well being of the student athletes ahead of any personal desire I may have for my own child to win.
 
7. Will not encourage any behaviors or practices that would endanger the health and well being of the student athletes.
 
8. Will be a positive role model for their child and encourage sportsmanship by showing respect and courtesy, and by demonstrating positive support for all players' coaches, officials, and spectators at every game, practice or sporting event.
 
9. Will not engage in any kind of unsportsmanlike conduct with any official, coach, player, or parent such as booing and taunting; refusing to shake hands; or using profane language or gestures.
