We believe that the opportunity for participation in a wide variety of activities is a vital part of a student’s educational experiences. Such participation is a privilege that carries with it responsibilities to the school, to the activity, to other students, to the community and to the athletes themselves. These experiences contribute to the development of learning skills and emotional patterns that enable the student to achieve maximum benefit from his or her education.
Coaching leadership should be of the highest quality and should provide athletes with examples of exemplary behavior. Measurement of leadership success should not be measured in terms of the tangible evidence of victories and defeats. Instead, character, courage and integrity should be the major objectives of the athletic program.
The athletic program should always be consistent with the general objectives of Brewster Middle School, Camp Lejeune Dependents’ Schools and DoDEA. Athletics should be viewed as an integral part of the total curriculum, and as such, every effort should be made to support the program with the best facilities, equipment and with the most qualified staff. Through the extracurricular activities programs, athletic administrators and school leaders should constantly strive for the development of well-rounded individuals, capable of taking their place in modern society.

Parents and student-athletes must attend one of the concussion meetings prior to trying out for any sport at Brewster Middle School.
At Brewster Middle School we offer 12 different sports for both male and female students. Unlike the high school, our sports are not broken up into fall, winter, and spring seasons. Our sports do not overlap (the exception being boys and girls track overlapping baseball) so all student athletes have the opportunity to try out for all sports offered. The following are the sports we offer and approximate starting dates of each sport:
|Sports||Start Date (Approximate)|
|Cheerleading, Football, Girls Softball||Beginning of School Year|
|Wrestling, Girls Soccer||October 22|
|Boys Basketball, Girls Basketball||December 10|
|Volleyball, Boys Soccer||February 11|
|Boys Track, Girls Track||April 8|
The requirements to participate in sports at Brewster Middle School are not complicated, but require explanation. A student will not be allowed to practice or try out for a team until they are eligible in all areas.
