Horizon Middle School Athletics

Registration for middle school athletics is open for next school year, 2024-25!  If your student plans to participate in middle school Fall athletics, please begin registration as soon as you can, so we can anticipate our team numbers for football, cross-country, girls' softball, boys' soccer and, 6th-grade girls' basketball. 

The only available sport for 6th graders is girls' basketball in the Fall, and boys' basketball in the Spring.

If your student does not have a current physical on file with the school and/or is not up to date with vaccinations, we recommend you make an appointment with a medical provider as soon as you can.

Ferndale School District will be offering a Vaccination Clinic, from 4:00-7:00 pm,  and a Physical Exam Clinic from 6:00-8:00 pm at Ferndale High School on Tuesday, August 13th.  You can also access same-day, walk-in physical exams at Peace Health Cordata in Bellingham.
