Hello Standley Track & Field Families,

Coach Goodwin will hold one final tryout tomorrow, Tuesday, September 12 from 3:15-4:45.  Coach asked for the additional day so that he could confirm times and provide equity to the athletes. 

Rosters will be posted Wednesday, 9/13 on the link below.

MSA Fall Rosters 2023                    

9/6/23 1 p.m.

Dear San Diego Unified Middle School Families,

On Monday, September 11, 2023, middle school athletic team rosters of the schools that completed two (2) days of tryouts will be posted on the San Diego Unified Middle School Athletics website under “Fall Rosters 2023-24”.  Some sites have submitted their rosters already and they’re being posted as received. Schools that were only able to complete one (1) day of tryouts will have their rosters posted within 24 hours of completion of their second tryout. Weeks 1 & 2 pool play game schedules with times and locations will also be posted on the website on Monday, September 11, 2023.

Each team will have two regularly scheduled practices per week: Middle School Fall 2023 Practice Schedule . If you do not see your middle school listed, it means there were not enough sign ups to field a team. If you see a box with an “X” in it, that indicates there is no practice on that day.

 Practice the first week will include a review of the following:

  • Plans for uniform distribution and return of uniform
  • Team expectations from the coach
  • Commitment to game and practice schedule

Finalizing a roster is always a challenging time for every coach. If you have a specific question about the team roster, please reach out to Lonnie Jones, San Diego Unified Middle School Athletics Coordinator at [email protected]

We have the following sports currently scheduled: 

Winter: Boys & Girls Soccer and Boys & Girls Volleyball

Spring: Boys Flag Football & Girls Flag Football

We look forward to your student(s) participating throughout the year.

Hello Middle School Families,

If you are receiving this email, it is because it is intended for your school specifically.

Thank you for registering for year two of Middle School Athletics (MSA).  We as a district are working incredibly hard to provide a quality product for all students and families involved.  With us growing so fast, there are some challenges with accommodating schedules with coaches.  With that being said, we are going to delay the start of your school site’s track & field tryouts and reschedule them for next week (the week of 9/4) while we continue to find the right coaches for your schools.  If you are interested or have a candidate you would recommend as a coach, please have them fill out this Google Form to express their interest.

Please refer to this tryout/practice schedule and pay special attention to your school’s days and times.  As a friendly reminder, Monday is Labor Day and there are no activities scheduled on holidays.  Tryouts will be extended to the week of 9/11.

Here is the link to the MSA website, please continue to check it for updates: https://sdusdathletics.com/middle-schools/

Thank you for being so flexible and understanding, without outstanding families like yourselves we would not be able to make this happen for our amazing students.

8/26/23 10:00 a.m.

Tryouts will begin the week of August 28th from 3:15 – 4:45 on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  The first two weeks will include tryouts and practice.

In preparation for next week’s tryouts here are few suggestions for student athletes.  Be on time, bring plenty of water, and wear comfortable athletic attire.  Day 1 of tryouts is always the busiest with checking in the student athletes which will cut into instruction time.  Please remember tryouts are closed to the parents/guardians as the coaches have limited amount of time with the athletes. Thank you for your understanding.

There will be two weeks of tryouts/practice where students are still able to sign-up and participate before coaches need to submit a final roster to the Athletics Office.  We will reopen the MSA Fall Registration Link 2023 Monday, 8/28.  

As we have looked at sign-ups, we’ve noticed that some of the school sites have extremely large sign-ups so I ask parents to really consider if their student can make the commitment to practice twice a week and commit to two games (basketball) and one track meet (track &field) on Saturdays at high school sites.  We realize that families have multiple options for their child’s health and athletic well-being. Many students participate on outside organizations and while I appreciate that, I also would hate to have a child not make a team because a spot was taken by a student who may have been more talented but can’t actually make the necessary commitment. 

I understand that communication with you is critical and until teams are finalized and coaches take over the responsibility of communication with their teams, the communication about matters such as weather conditions/cancellations/game schedules, etc. has to go through our office. 

If you’re interested in coaching middle school track & field please complete the interest form.  Track & Field Coaching Interest

We will update districtwide changes/expectations/rules/etc. on our Middle School Athletics district website located at https://sdusdathletics.com/middle-schools/

We appreciate your participation in Middle School Athletics and look forward to the start of year two of SDUSD Middle School Athletics. Thanks.


This Friday, August 25 at 8:00pm, we will be closing off the fall MSA registration link.
