Crossroads Athletics

25 Jul Crossroads Athletics

Hi, Crossroads students and families!

I hope you have had a fun and relaxing summer and have had some time to enjoy a little extra “together time” with your middle schooler!  It is hard to believe it is time to start thinking about back to school information.  With school beginning after Labor Day, due to bond construction (thank you NV families), all of our middle school athletics for the fall season will begin PRIOR to the start of the actual school year.  I know many families schedule vacations in August so I wanted to get this information out as soon as possible.  Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions regarding middle school athletics.

If your middle schooler will be participating in any middle school athletics this school year, he/she is required to have a sports physical on file in the main office PRIOR to the first day of try-outs or the first day of practice (whichever comes first).  This physical must be dated AFTER April 15, 2022.  This is not a Northview requirement but rather a Michigan High School Athletic Association requirement.  The physical is good for the entire 2022-2023 school year.  On site sports physical information as well as fall athletic start dates can be found below.  The physical form can be found here.

Sports Physicals – The district will be offering sports physicals at NVHS on August 2nd from 6:00-8:00 pm.  Students must be pre-registered for this and the cost is $40.  More information, as well as how to pre-register, can be found here.

Co-ed Cross Country (no cuts) – The first day of practice is August 23rd from 10:00-11:00.  Runners should meet coaches at the NVHS track. View Schedule

Co-ed Football (no cuts) – The first day of practice is August 15th from 3:00-5:00.  Players should meet coaches at the shed behind Crossroads Middle School.

Girls Sideline Cheer (try-outs required) – Try-outs will take place on August 9th and 10th from 6:00-8:00.  Girls must attend both dates and should meet at the NVHS football stadium entrance.  Please email Coach Taylor if your daughter will be attending.  Her email address is

Girls Volleyball (try-outs required) – Open gym will take place on August 22nd and try-outs will take place on August 23rd, 24th and 25th at NVHS in the auxiliary gym.  Girls must attend all three try-out dates.  More details, including times, are attached here.

Again, please feel free to reach out if you have any questions.  Enjoy your last month of summer and we look forward to the start of the 2022-2023 school year!
