Programs for 2016-2017 School Year
Fall Sports Teams
Winter Sports Teams
Spring Sports Teams
Tournament Teams (Girls Volleyball, Boys & Girls Basketball)
The Hillview PTO sponsors this program for 7th/8th girls in volleyball and for all 8th graders in basketball. This program is designed for those students who want to play these sports at a more competitive level and to prepare students for high school sports. A higher level of commitment is expected than those who play on in the Burgess League/MPMSL programs. Unlike other after school sports programs, teams are selected based on player evaluations and, depending on interest, there may be “cuts.” This will be the final year for Tournament Volleyball as many clubs currently exist that allow athletes to play competitively.

This clinic will emphasize basketball fundamentals important for beginning and intermediate players at the middle school level. Target students are those who are seriously motivated to learn more about mastering the important foundations of solid basketball play.
