General Athletic Information

Students at Davidson Middle School are encouraged to participate in athletics and extra-curricular activities. Organized sports in the State of Michigan begin in grade 7 (grade 6 for some sports) and are governed by the Michigan High School Athletic Association (MHSAA). Davidson Middle School is part of the Downriver League. 

Downriver League Mission Statement

The goal of middle school athletics is to serve as a laboratory for lessons learned from the home and in the classroom.  We promote:

·       Physical, mental, and emotional health

·       The connections between the student athlete and his/her school

·       Academic success

·       Sportsmanship and respect from our athletes, coaches, and spectators

·       Lifelong attitudes of dedication, hard work, team work, sportsmanship, respect for authority, and pride in self, team, school, and community

To achieve these goals we encourage our students to participate in our interscholastic programs and to commit themselves to upholding a code of conduct that supports fun, fair, and safe play for all.
