Upcoming Changes to our Elementary and Middle School Athletic Programs


As we close out this school year, we wanted to share important information about some upcoming changes to our elementary and middle school athletic programs. 

After careful consideration and a thorough review of school budgets, availability of facilities and coaches, and declining participation numbers, the Osceola School District has made the decision to eliminate three middle school sports (wrestling, softball, and golf), elementary school golf, as well as the elementary all-sports championships, effective for the 2024-2025 school year. It has become necessary to make these adjustments to ensure the sustainability and quality of our overall athletic program. 

Be assured that this decision was not made lightly. We understand the significant role that sports and physical activities play in the development and well-being of our students. We are committed to continuing to provide seven other middle school sports (cross country, soccer, volleyball, basketball, competitive cheerleading, track and field, and flag football), three elementary school sports (coed cross country, coed soccer, and coed track and field), and a wide range of extracurricular activities to keep our students engaged in physical activities. We encourage our students to participate in the remaining sports and extracurricular activities offered and will be working to enhance these programs to accommodate increased interest. 

Thank you for your continued support of the Osceola County School District and our efforts to provide the best possible educational and extracurricular experiences for our students.
