Our school strives to offer as many sports as possible to both male and female students. All Athletic programs will stress academic success, physical fitness, character development, discipline, and good sportsmanship. Our athletes represent our school and community and are expected to be student leaders with positive behavior.

Four sports (Soccer / Basketball / Volleyball / Track) are offered during the school year for both boys and girls. Students participating in interscholastic sports compete against other middle schools in our learning community. Dates for try-outs begin on or about the second day of each nine-week. Participating in interscholastic sports at Union Park Middle School is considered a privilege, subject to the approval of the Head Coach, Administration and the Athletic Coordinator. All students shall abide by the Orange County Public School Code of Student Conduct, Union Park Middle rules and regulations, as well as the rules and regulations set up by the coach.

A student may be eligible to participate only after all the following forms and sections are completed and turned in to his/her coach by the first day of try-outs. All forms must be completed each year and must be done only on the forms provided. The forms may be downloaded from our Forms and Documents page or are available at our front office.
