Winter Sports Information

Winter Sports Information
Posted on 12/15/2020
BMS will be offering an abbreviated winter sports season which follows the health and safety guidelines set forth by the Maine Department of Education as well as the Maine Principals Association. BMS will be offering the following sports this winter for 6th-8th grade students:

Boys Basketball
Girls Basketball
Cheering

Plans for middle school wrestling are still under development.  Wrestling will take place later this winter or spring if we are able to offer it. 

Currently, plans are to begin winter sports with a conditioning and skill building period on January 4th.  Tryouts, practices, and competitions would start after that date.  Sign up sheets are available on student's Brightspace homeroom pages.  Both in person and fully remote students can sign up for fall sports.  We ask that all interested students and parents watch this virtual preseason meeting for important information about winter sports.

Please note that due to the safe return to play guidelines we are required to operate under, winter sports will look a little different this year, including:

a requirement that all participants wear a mask during practice and competition;

compressed schedules, with fewer games played;

limited roster sizes due to restrictions on group sizes;

no spectators at home or away games due to state restrictions on the size of indoor gatherings.

Despite the challenges, we know the benefits that school athletics provide our students and are glad to be able to offer winter sports to our students.
