Lakeshore Middle School Athletics
Grand Haven is proud of its many playgrounds, playing fields, gymnasiums and swimming pools. Interscholastic sports are scheduled for both girls and boys in the high school and middle school. The program provides eight major sports, including basketball, cross country, golf, skiing, soccer, swimming, tennis, track and field, water polo, and diving. Additional girls sports include softball and volleyball. Boys sports also include baseball, football and wrestling. Over 2,000 students participate in the sports program from grades 7-12. Grand Haven is a member of the Ottawa-Kent Red Conference, which includes eight western Michigan high schools.
The Grand Haven Area Public School District believes that interscholastic sports:
- are an integral part of the total educational process for all students. provides opportunities and experiences which assist students in their personal adjustment and development. helps meet the students' needs. provides good training habits necessary to learn sportsmanship, self-discipline, leadership and teamwork. should strive for excellence.
- provides the spirit of competition and sportsmanship for athletic teams.
A quality athletic program is the shared responsibility of the students, staff, parents and community. It requires a supportive environment that allows for participation among students, staff, and parents. It is our expectation that our athletes hold themselves to the highest standards whether they are in the classroom, on the playing field, or out in the community. It is our expectation that our staff, coaches, and parents, also, represent themselves and the school in a very positive way when they attend any athletic event home or away. As with any successful team, we must all work together to ensure that Grand Haven athletics continue a tradition of excellence.

MHSAA Representative Council Ruling:
Due to our current Covid-19 situation, last year’s 2019-20 Sports Physical Exam on file at the Athletic Office is valid for this 2020-21 year’s sports.
Therefore, you will NOT need another sports physical exam, just the MHSAA Sports Health Questionnaire (Found in Forms & Handbooks below) completed and turned into the Athletic office or Coach BEFORE try-outs or 1st day of official practice.
If you did NOT participate in a sport last school year, you WILL need a Sports Physical Exam (Found in Forms & Handbooks below) done after April 15 of this year, 2020, completed and turned into the Athletic office or Coach BEFORE tryouts or 1st day of official practice.
Please pay special attention to this portion on the Sports Health Questionnaire.................If the athlete gives the completed Questionnaire to you, PLEASE check if any YES boxes are checked, as I will if turned into me.
A YES answer to any of the above questions requires a physical exam from a MD, DO, NP, PA prior to participation.
