Middle School Sports 2022-2023 Seasons
As spring sports have finished up, we are now preparing for the 2022-2023 sports seasons at the middle school. All rising 6th through 8th grade students currently at Darlington have signed up for all sports teams that they are interested in for next year. All coaches have this information and will send out all pertinent information to all players and parents in regards to practices, workouts, and competitions over the summer and early fall.
If you are a new student to Darlington or have any last-minute changes, it is critical that you email the coach listed below so that you can be at all tryouts, workouts, and practices. Any new students that are added late will have an opportunity to try out in the fall.
Girls’ Volleyball - We will have girls' volleyball tryouts on May 17-19 from 3:30 to 5 p.m. in the Van Es Arena.

New students can meet at the Van Es arena at 3:30 p.m. During the summer, we will have a volleyball team camp in late July and our official practices will start on Aug. 4 (before school begins). Please make sure you contact Coach Eberhart at email@example.com if you haven’t already signed up to be on the email list or have questions.
