Hillcrest Athletics update and information

Greetings Falcons, this is Matt Hreha principal of Hillcrest Middle School with an important announcement regarding Middle School athletics:

Falcon Parents, the Deer Valley Unified School District, in an effort to continue to provide athletic opportunities in a safe environment, has made a decision to only allow intramural programs on each campus. This means that Hillcrest will be having a 4 week Volleyball program that will allow us to have teams that are created on our campus to compete against each other. We are excited to say that we are looking to have a non-cut volleyball program that will give all students an opportunity to participate. The school will be providing a T-shirt that will be used as a uniform at no cost to the student and we will be having competitions as well as a championship tournament. We ask that all students interested in participating, please complete the register my athlete process as well as having a current physical uploaded into the system.
