This Board of Education sanctioned group functions under the umbrella of the school district and administration. There is a volunteer Board that organizes the athletic offerings.
Coaches are all non-parent professionals, many if not all are Madison School District teachers/staff. Public meetings of the MJSAO will take place during the year and will be advertised for anyone in the community to attend. Newcomers are always welcome. Please go to www.mjsdodgers.org for more information.
Each teams’ information regarding tryouts and or eligibility will be posted on the website a month or two before the first team event. Please check back frequently. Email blasts will also communicate upcoming sport specific information with regards to registration.
Each team meets a maximum of three times per week for practices and games. Some practices are held at school while others are off-site at local parks. Parents are responsible for getting their child to all off site practices and games.
Any athlete making a team will be required to pay a participation fee to cover all team expenses such as coaches’ salary, uniform costs, officials’ cost, and equipment costs. Parents are expected to volunteer to carpool students to games.
