  2017-2018 Athletic Registration

*Starting this coming school year ALL athletic registrations will be done on-line.  This system will go on-line sometime in July.  There will be a link located on the middle school home page. 7th Graders and any student who did not participate during 7th grade will need to have an athletic physical on file at the Detroit Lakes Middle School before they will be able to register online.  The physical needs to be completed on the Minnesota State High School League form. Well-child checks do not qualify as a sports physical.

In order to speed up the registration process you can drop the sports physical off in the gray lock box found outside of the middle school office or you can mail the sports physical to the following address:
