East Athletes Move on to Collegiate Level

For current 8th grade students interested in fall sports


MMSD Summer Athletics Guidance:

MMSD will implement the following additional provisions in support of Forward Dane and the safe reopening of our schools and community:

1) Virtual spring coaching only can occur through May 30th for spring sports.

2) Virtual summer training activities may begin June 1st related to general strength and fitness training. This means individual training or workouts may be shared or scheduled on a virtual platform for synchronous training- such as stretching, flexibility, and warm-up routines, strength and speed training, conditioning, and mental preparation/sport psychology resources - so long as it follows normal WIAA Coaching Contact rules.

3) MMSD athletic programs will not have in-person programming this includes summer contact, open gyms, camps, clinics or other training opportunities through July 31st. 

  • Our school buildings will be closed through July 31, 2020. This includes all facilities and  grounds including athletic fields, outdoor courts, and stadiums.

  • MMSD athletics will not hold any summer contact sessions in person nor encourage students to gather outside of school grounds, to train through July 31st at this time:

    • We hope to return to education-based athletic programs August 1st with additional guidance from WIAA and local public health

    • We will provide students with best practices and mental health support along with virtual training opportunities and connections to help facilitate when we are ready to return in-person athletics.

    • If conditions merit, it is possible small group outdoor activities may be allowed in late July, related to preparation and injury prevention in a return to play process.

    • NFHS Guidance for opening at this time for your information
