“A good coach will make his players see what they can be rather than what they are.” -College Football Hall of Fame Coach Ara Parseghian
At Bowman Middle School our athletic department strives to develop young athletes into leaders. Our coaches provide a positive environment to foster growth and development in athletics, academics and character. By becoming a member of Bowman athletics your child is agreeing to hold themselves to a higher standard. Playing sports is a privilege and with it comes the responsibility of being a model student in and outside of school. Coaches expect athletes to take pride in themselves, their school and their community. They should always keep in mind younger students are looking up to them and should always act in a respectable manner. Our coaches look forward to the opportunity of helping each athlete see and reach their full potential so that they can find success at Bowman and in life.
Our athletic program for young men includes football, basketball, track, and cross-country. Young women can participate in volleyball, basketball, track, and cross-country.
Girls Athletics (7th and 8th grades) will take place during 1st period (8:30- 9:15). If an athlete is participating in an in-season sport the practices usually begin at 7:15am and continues through the athletic period. If an athlete is in the off-season program they will begin practice at 8:30am and continue through the athletic period.
