FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

My son/daughter told me they are interested in joining Animal Welfare Club. What do I do next?

Animal Welfare Club will hold their initial information meeting sometime in September. Students who are interested in joining the club must attend this meeting to receive information on the club including schedule, requirements, etc. Students will receive a registration form from the advisor which must be returned prior to their first session.

My son/daughter told me they are interested in trying out for soccer. What do I do next?

First, any student wishing to participate in an intramural/interscholastic sport must have a valid physical completed on the school physical forms. These forms are available on the school website and in the main office. Students must have had a valid physical form submitted to the nurse no later than the dates below to be eligible to play a fall or spring intramural/interscholastic sport.

  • August for Fall Sports
  • October for Winter Sports
  • March for Spring Sports

If your son/daughter has a valid physical on file they must attend the sports' first meeting. This meeting will be held prior to the first tryout. The coach will address certain topics such as tryout/practice schedule, academic eligibility procedures, expectations, equipment, etc.

Please Note: Physicals are valid for one year from the date of the exam, provided a new Seasonal Update Form is submitted for each season. Seasonal Update Forms MUST be submitted before the deadline for each sport season.

What is the difference between Intramurals and Interscholastic Sports?

In intramural sports, students compete against students from Marlton Middle School. All intramurals are co-ed. There are no try-outs and generally, all students that sign up are enrolled. In interscholastic sports students compete against other middle schools in the local area and students will have to try out for a position on certain interscholastic teams. These teams include: boys' and girls' soccer, field hockey, girls' and boys' basketball, girls' softball, baseball, and girls' and boys' lacrosse.

When do the clubs begin and end?

Clubs and activities begin immediately after the school day ends and last until 3:30 pm. A 3:30 pm late bus will available during each school day.

Please Note: If students are still waiting for rides by the time bus runs are ready to depart MMS, students will be sent home on their assigned late bus for safety reasons.

How many clubs/intramurals may my child participate in?

Students may participate in as many clubs/activities as they wish, as long as the clubs they wish to join do not meet on the same days. We do our best to hold to the scheduled days, however, there are circumstances (weather, etc.) that do create a necessity for a change.

How is it determined who gets in which club/activity?

Students do not always get into each and every club for which he/she signs up. Some clubs are capped for obvious reasons and when a club reaches capacity the advisor will take the students who signed up for the club on a first come, first serve basis.

How many students are in each club/activity?

It varies. Every club is different. Some are unlimited and some hold a specific number of students.

What if I have questions about a club/activity? Is there someone I can call?

Contact the advisor directly as the main office does not always have the most current information. Advisor names are listed next to each club/activity. Further information is listed on both the school and PTA websites.

Does my child have to maintain a certain academic grade level in order to participate in interscholastic sports?

Yes. All students involved in interscholastic sports must follow the academic eligibility guidelines which will be given to all students involved in interscholastic sports.

If my child no longer wishes to be involved in a club after the club begins, is he or she entitled to a refund?

No. Refunds will not be permitted once a club begins.

Can my son/daughter participate in both band and basketball?

Yes. Students are eligible to participate in both a music program and an interscholastic sport. Our coaches and advisors communicate effectively in an effort to make sure that each child is able to fully gain from both experiences.
