Most teams practice and/or play 2 days a week.  Usually, practices take immediately after school. Most practices last 1.5 - 2 hours.

DOES EVERYONE MAKE THE TEAM OR DO I HAVE TO TRYOUT?

We encourage any student who desires to play a sport to register. However, we have a very large number of students who want to play Volleyball and Basketball, but only a limited number of players per team. Spots on these teams will be secured in the order registration forms are received.

DO I HAVE TO UPDATE MY REGISTRATION EVEN IF I HAVE ALREADY PLAYED A SPORT THIS YEAR AT DMS?

Yes. Your ONLINE Athletic Registration must be updated by the deadline for each season of sport in which you are participating. Registration Dates:

  • Fall: August 27

  • Winter: November 12

  • Spring: March 4

Parents of student-athletes are asked to attend & volunteer at home games as needed, and help to carpool athletes to away games as needed. The Athletic Department relies heavily on parent volunteer time and donations to keep our program running. Contact your team's coach for more details.
