Welcome to the MHS Athletics page

Middleton High School Athletics!

MHS Teachers, Coaches, Students, Athletes, Parents and Boosters have contributed to a sports program that is considered to be one of the top athletic programs in the state of Wisconsin. Please join us as we continue to promote academic and athletic excellence, outstanding sportsmanship, and values that the Middleton-Cross Plains Area Community can be proud of.

We hope that you enjoy the upcoming season in what should prove to be another exciting chapter in the rich tradition of Middleton High School Athletics.



In accordance with the MHS philosophy of athletics and our desire to have as many students as possible participate in the athletic program at MHS, we encourage coaches to retain as many athletes as possible (most sports utilizing a rubric system) without affecting the integrity of their sport.  Time, facilities, equipment, personal preference, and other factors place limitations on the most effective squad size for any particular sport.  When developing policy with respect to squad selection, we strive to maximize opportunities for our athletes without diluting the quality of the program. Most of our athletic teams do not cut at the Freshmen level, however in Volleyball, Basketball, Soccer, and Hockey the above mentioned factors may force us to cut from year to year in those sports. Remember, if you get cut from one of these sports it may open the door to a new opportunity.


Summer Performance Training:

Middleton High School offers summer athletic performance training to all current high school students and incoming freshman.  The primary goal of these sessions is to help all students build functional, connected strength and improve movement literacy to optimize performance and minimize injury potential.  The sessions take place three days per week and are free to all students.  Parents are welcome and encouraged to attend.  For more information see Strength and Conditioning Program under Athletics Information on this site.
