Welcome to Creekside Athletics!

A Message From the Activities Director

Dear Student and Parent(s),

The Creekside Middle School Athletics Department would like to extend an invitation to all students to participate in the many interscholastic athletic programs offered. We believe that the mental, physical, and emotional growth of a student can be greatly enhanced by participating in a well-organized sports program.

We are counting on the support of parents and students involved in our athletics program as we assume the tremendous joint responsibility for the education of your child. We need the support of all parents in reinforcing that academic responsibilities come first and that each student-athlete must learn to manage his/her time, energy, and talents in such a way as to excel in the classroom as well as athletics.

I would also like to ask you to consider becoming a Wildcat Athletic Patron. Donations from patrons will provide a major portion of the funds to operate the athletics program since tax revenues cannot be used for most athletic expenses. Your support will be greatly appreciated by all the student-athletes at Creekside Middle School.

The Creekside Middle School Athletics Department is here to serve the students and parents of this community. Please let us know when we can be of assistance to you.

Athletics Passes & Ticket Information

  • Admission is charged for football, volleyball, boys’ and girls’ basketball, wrestling, softball, baseball, and track.

  • Admission price for regular season contests is $4.00 for adults and $2.00 for students. However, an athletic pass is available for your convenience. The cost is $50 for an adult pass, $30 for a student pass, or $125 for a family pass, which gets all the members of your immediate family living in the same household in to all home athletic events free of charge.  No more worrying about having cash on you or waiting in line! Just show your pass and walk in to the event!

  • Sports passes are not accepted for Hamilton County tournaments.

Coach of the Month

  • If you feel your child’s coach has done a tremendous job with communication, putting students first, or just providing a great experience for your son or daughter, please consider nominating him/her for “Coach of the Month”.  All coaches that are nominated will be recognized in front of his/her peers at a faculty meeting. The Coach of the Month will be given a Target gift card, the blurb of why they were nominated, and their picture will be posted in the athletic hallway for everyone to see.  All nominations will be given to coaches so they all know just how much we appreciate their dedication
