District 131 believes that athletics are an integral part of the total educational experience for boys and girls. We encourage all student athletes to broaden their skills, knowledge and citizenship by participating in school-sponsored athletic teams.

Athletics within District 131 are designed to develop the physical skills, positive self-image, confidence, leadership, teamwork and work ethic of student athletes. Under proper guidance, athletics is a powerful educational force, particularly in the development of social, moral and physical qualities of today’s youth.

Wrestling is offered as a winter sport for all students at Simmons. It teaches basic moves and continues to build on those moves throughout the season. No experience needed. The team competes in wrestling meets against numerous other schools in our district and the surrounding area.



Simmons Middle School enjoys a long and very successful soccer program. Our philosophy emphasizes individual growth, teamwork, and respect for all participants. We focus on improving the player’s physical fitness, soccer skills, and knowledge of the game. Teamwork is the foundation of this sport and players are encouraged to realize their skills and how they can utilize each other’s abilities to strengthen the team. We stress understanding for the complexity of the sport, which helps develop respect for the game, each other and our opponents. The program is offered to boys grades six through eight in the fall, and to girls grades six through eight in the spring. Due to the high interest in the sport, players do tryout for the team. Participants must maintain a passing grade in all academic classes to qualify for and to remain on the team.
