Physicals

If you are looking for a way to get a physical, our provider, Aurora BayCare has some affordable opportunities. The cost is $25, and the dollars are donated back to the school. The dates & times are July 16, 18, 22 & 24, from 5-8 pm. The physicals are held at their Sports Medicine Facility, 1160 Kepler Drive, Green Bay. You can register by going to aurorabaycare.com/events, keyword: physicals. Questions, call 920.288.5491. A completed, signed physical form performed after 4/1/2018 must be on file at the MS Students Services office prior to your student being cleared for practice


Equipment

The DPMS program provides helmets, shoulder pads, other protective gear and game/practice jerseys and pants. Cleats are very highly recommended. 


Equipment II

The school provides helmets, shoulder pads, mouthguards, other protective pads and game/practice jerseys & pants.We also provide girdle pads (this is basically underwear with hip pads and a butt pad) for all players. However, the girdles we have are 3-piece girdles. Most football players now wear 5 - piece girdles. Think of a compression short with hip pads, tail pad and thigh pads for those of you unfamiliar. Since this item is more akin to a pair of compression shorts, we strongly encourage you to purchase a pair. Depending on growth and wear, you can often get more than one season out of them. These can be purchased through a sporting goods retailer.Or, we also have a vendor available that conducts an on-line sale. You can make the purchase through this link to make orders of the 5-piece girdle pads from BSN SportsIf prompted, use the access code: SSYtEbHEHX. BSN indicates they will arrive here at school before we start with full pads, and we will contact you upon arrival. The ordering window is from Wednesday, June 5th through Monday, June 17th.


Paperwork

Paperwork and fees for football and other middle school sports can be completed while doing the on-line general school registration. The on-line instructions typically come in mid-June. For details on the items needed, please review the DPMS Extracurriculars home page.

Overview

The DPMS program provides helmets, shoulder pads, other protective gear and game/practice jerseys and pants. Cleats are very highly recommended. 

Middle School football season runs from mid-August through mid-October.

Practices before school start in the early evening. Practices during the school year start immediately after the end of the school day. Generally, we do not practice on Fridays in August.

Games are against schools in the local area and are generally held on Tuesdays. Home games are on the field turf (Nowak Family Field) at the HS. Practices take place behind (on the west side) of the middle school.
