DLMS offers a variety of activities for students starting in 7th grade. These activities are organized by Fall, Winter and Spring seasons.

Any student participating in a school sport will need to have an athletic physical on file at Detroit Lakes Middle School before they will be able to register online (they are valid for 3 years). The athletic physical needs to be completed on the Minnesota State High School League form. Well-child checks do not qualify as a sports physical.  The physical form can be dropped off at DLMS office, or emailed to 

You need to go online and register/pay the fee for each sport your student participates in.
