District 131 believes that athletics are an integral part of the total educational experience for boys and girls. We encourage all student athletes to broaden their skills, knowledge and citizenship by participating in school-sponsored athletic teams.

Athletics within District 131 are designed to develop the physical skills, positive self-image, confidence, leadership, teamwork and work ethic of student athletes. Under proper guidance, athletics is a powerful educational force, particularly in the development of social, moral and physical qualities of today’s youth.

Does running, jumping, tumbling and cheering sound like fun to you? If so, cheerleading may be the sport meant for you! Even though most cheerleaders are on the sidelines cheering for teams at sporting events, at the highest levels cheerleading is also a sport itself. With participants performing choreographed dances and complex aerial tricks that are extremely physically demanding, cheerleading is a high-energy mix of dance and gymnastics.



Basketball is an exciting sport combining team play and individual skills. We have a 6th/7th Grade Teams and an 8th Grade Team.
Future Problem Solvers Bowl – The Mission of Future Problems Solvers Bowl (FPSI), founded by Dr. E. Paul Torrance in 1974 is to develop the ability of young people globally to design and promote positive futures through problem solving using critical and creative thinking. The program prepares young minds to solve futuristic problems (10-20 years in the future) using a six step process. This method of solving problems requires researching the topic, analyzing and writing as a team to complete the solution.




We focus on player/skill development while learning to work as a team. We practice after school and offer a free week long soccer camp that takes place over the summer to any student that will be a 6th-8th grader
