"Just play. Have fun. Enjoy the game." – Michael Jordan
70% of our Middle School students play for one of our 9 competitive sports teams.
In support of the School’s mission statement, the Barnesville School provides Middle School students with a joyful, competitive, and well-rounded program designed to enhance skills, emphasize sportsmanship, and develop leadership qualities. We have a proud athletic tradition, including multiple conference championships over the years, where many students continue their athletic interests into high school and college.
Our athletic facilities include a full gymnasium with a regulation hardwood-floor basketball court, an outdoor basketball court, an outdoor soccer/lacrosse field, a challenge ropes course, and a cross country course.
We ensure that there is a place for all of our middle school students to learn and compete in team sports and/or intramurals, and many choose to take on the challenge of trying a sport like lacrosse for the first time. Students engage in competition and teamwork in a positive environment at Barnesville, while developing self-discipline and confidence. These and other qualities that are nurtured in athletic activities will be valuable in helping student/athletes strive for success in other aspects of their lives as well.
