Baird Middle School competes in the FUSD Middle School Athletic League. Every student who attends Baird, grades 5-8, is welcome and encouraged to try out for a sport, although not every student is assured a spot on a roster.
We do offer several "non-cut" sports, such as Cross Country, Wrestling, and Track & Field, in which all students are encouraged to participate.
