Congratulations to Jordan Villareal on being named DVUSD Middle School Coach of the Month for October.
Deer Valley Unified School District (DVUSD) provides its middle school student athletes with multiple opportunities to compete throughout the school year.
In 2022-23, we changed the order of our seasons so that we could align with our neighboring districts to offer more athletic opportunities for our students. Not only do we have the opportunity for post-season regional championships, but we are now opening up in-season tournaments hosted by high schools throughout all three districts (Dysart, Peoria and DVUSD).
We also needed to make a change to the order of our seasons due to the fact that we were experiencing a shortage of game officials in previous years when the sports seasons coincided with the high school seasons. By making this change, we had one of our best years in regard to official coverage!
Both the high school athletic directors and the district athletic directors believe that the current seasonal format is best for the long term development of our athletic programs.
The continuation of our current season schedule will allow us to continue and grow our partnership with the Peoria and Dysart Districts, as well as allow us to continue to build our connections between the middle schools and high schools within our own district. As our middle schools compete outside of the high school seasons, this will allow for high school coaches and assistant coaches to become more involved with our middle school programs.
As we continue to move forward in partnership with our high schools and neighboring districts, our goal is to provide as many athletic opportunities for our students within DVUSD. We look forward to a great 2023-24 school year!

Physical Packets will be completed online for 2023-2024
All physical packets will be done online at Register My Athlete. This is the same site that the high schools use. Parents will need to have their student athletes registered on this site before they can try out. The four AIA physical pages for the doctor will be available online at our Desert Mountain Athletic website and in the front office starting this May. These forms can be uploaded to Register My Athlete. There will be an informational meeting in May to help parents with the transition from the paper copies to the online version.
