During the middle level years, a student undergoes significant physical, social, intellectual, and emotional change. Middle level athletic programs are designed to address the needs and characteristics of middle level students; developing a positive sense of self, developing empathy for others, and building confidence to engage the broader world. Middle school athletics include intramural and interscholastic programs.

Intramural Athletics
The intramural program provides an introduction to athletics with an emphasis on participation and enjoyment of physical activity while participating on a team. The program offers approximately three weeks to practice and learn, and it concludes with a culminating activity with other BVSD intramural teams.

6th/7th Flag Football
6th/7th Girls Volleyball

Interscholastic Athletics
The interscholastic athletic program provides a transition between the intramural programs of the 6th and 7th grade levels and the more competitive high school program. The program offers continued emphasis on participation and enjoyment of physical activity while allowing increased attention to coaching and skill development, with six to eight contests with other schools. 

The interscholastic offerings are:
8th Football
