Fall Sports Registration
Hyde Park School Athletics is focused on developing well-rounded student-athletes. We are committed to teaching the foundational elements of the sports included in our program while providing a safe and fun environment. 
Our Soccer program is open to kindergarteners through 6th graders. Kindergarteners are encouraged to play in our Lollipop Division which includes one practice per week and no official games. All other soccer divisions should expect 2 practices per week and 1 or 2 games per weekend.
Volleyball is typically open to 3rd – 6th graders. We are in the process of re-evaluating the league in which we participate, so please be patient as we work out those details. There is a chance teams will be combined and grouped by grade. Expect 2 practices per week and 1 or 2 games on the weekend.
Running Club is offered as an evening activity, one night per week for our Kindergartener – 2nd graders. This age group focuses on general running activity, including all-around exercise and games. Our 3rd – 6th graders are grouped separately and typically practice one night per week as well. The focus here is running and building up to longer distances. Practice locations may vary.
Flag football was a new offer this past Spring and will return in the Fall. We will hold registration for 2nd - 6th grade, but final teams will be determined by total registration (both student and volunteer coaches). Games will be played on Sunday afternoons/evenings.
Anyone in need of an athletic scholarship, please contact Mike Brugh at: hps.athletics@outlook.com
