The PPS middle grades (6th - 8th) youth sports program will be directed by the Portland Interscholastic League (PIL). The student/athletes will represent their neighborhood high school cluster. FALL SPORTS OFFERED (Begins Late August) : Volleyball, Cross Country WINTER SPORTS OFFERED (Begins Mid November): Boys Basketball, Girls Basketball, Wrestling SPRING SPORTS OFFERED (Begins Mid February): Track & Field
In the spring of 2014 we piloted our track and field PIL youth program. This was the first time the PIL offered a sport for students younger than ninth grade and was welcomed with great success. We were able to grow the program and offer five sports during the 2014-2015 school year and added boys' basketball last year. Thanks in part to the financial support of many individuals, we will once again be offering the same youth sports at the middle grades level for the 2016-2017 school year. Cross country and girls' volleyball will be offered this fall, wrestling, girls' and boys' basketball in the winter, and co-ed track and field will return once again as our spring sport.
