Athletics and education are partners for success at Carmel Middle School.  The coaching staff, the students, and the parent volunteers contribute to the outstanding reputation of Carmel athletics. Students in grades 6-8 participate on twenty-nine teams in ten sports. Carmel Middle School is proud of its student athletes in and out of the classroom. One principle value of sports is in the realization that life is reflected in the athletic endeavor. 

Success is facilitated by  

  1. Being well prepared
  2. Maintaining a positive attitude
  3. Developing a dedication to a cause
  4. Establishing high standards of conduct and attitude   

Athletics prepare our young people for the challenges of adult life. The athletics staff wants your child to have a very positive experience at Carmel Middle School. With your help and your positive support of the staff at Carmel Middle School, the experience that all will have will be most rewarding.

Admission is charged for football, volleyball, boys’ and girls’ basketball, wrestling, softball, baseball, and track. The collection of admission serves as a primary source of revenue for the athletics department. The state of Indiana, unlike surrounding states, provides tax dollars only for coaches’ salaries, building the facilities, and transportation. No tax dollars are used for the purchase of equipment (balls, hurdles, nets, helmets, etc.).

Admission price for regular season contests is $4.00 for adults and $2.00 for students. An all-sports pass is available for your convenience. The cost is $50 for an adult and $30 for a student. Another option is to purchase a Family Pass for $125. The Family Pass enables members of the same household to each have a Family Pass for the school year and be admitted to all regular season athletic contests. No sports passes are accepted for Hamilton County tournaments.
