Bill Roberts is a “No Cut” school
all students can participate
We are looking forward to a great year of Bobcat Athletics! In order to communicate better with interested players and their families, we are requesting you fill out the Parent/Physician Form form below and check any boxes of sports that your student may be interested in playing this year.
This is not a commitment, but we will send an email to inform you prior to your interested sport(s) starting.
If your child will be participating in Fall Sports (Cross Country or Boys Soccer) you will turn the form in with your $25 per sport fee to your coach. If your student will play a sport later in the year, please turn in the form to the front office (no fees are due at this time). Fall Sports will need their physicals completed ASAP and all others will need to be done before they can participate.
Tryouts or informational meetings are posted by the P.E. Department at Bill Roberts a week or more before the season start dates below. They are put onto the Google calendar above, announced to students and posted on the Tryouts poster at school when we know them.
Bill Roberts offers a variety of sports in which students may participate at the 6-8th grades. Visit DPS Athletics online for a complete list of schedules, scores, and standings. Come watch a game or a meet and cheer on the Bobcats!

All participants must have completed a physical and a physical form signed by their health provider on file with the school. All participants must also complete the section on “Athletic Emergency Information.”
Each participant must maintain good attendance and strong academic standing. Athletes make sure an eligibility report is completed each week for the following week’s game eligibility — it is their responsibility to make sure this is completed. The Athletic Director and administration reserve the right to reconsider eligibility at any time.
The district will provide Bus transportation to and from away games. If a parent/guardian chooses to bring a student home from the away game, they must sign the child out with the coach before leaving.
