The LCMSAA athletic league has decided to add girls' soccer in the fall. It will start and end within the same time frame as our other middle school sports.
WMS has the facility for this program, and through both an interest survey and a sign-up, it has become evident that we have an adequate number of students interested to make this program happen.
Our athletic program review by OSPI this year revealed a deficiency in our middle school girls participation numbers, and adding this program will most likely make us compliant. In addition, we anticipate this program will be attractive to many of our Latina students, allowing us to offer a more equitable athletic program.
It is anticipated that the startup costs for the first year of this program will be approximately $5000.
