Students in 7th and 8th grades may participate in a number of sports. Students must try-out for the team, and not all students are selected to the team. All of our teams are competitive and the best eligible players play at the discretion of our coaches.
At Blue Ridge Middle, we offer volleyball, basketball, baseball, softball, and soccer. Some high school sports teams allow 7th and 8th grade students to participate. Contact the high school for more information.
Students who meet specific academic performance requirements by the end of their 7th grade year become eligible to join our chapter of the National Junior Beta Club.

Our Robotics teams are a co-curricular activity that occurs during and after school hours. Student design, build, and test robots to compete against other schools in the state. Teams are required to maintain an engineering notebook and document all ideas and iterations. In the 2018-2019 school year, BRMS hosted three competition teams. The teams brought home four trophies and all received an invitation to the state competition. This school year, BRMS will host nine Vex EDR teams and four Vex IQ teams ranging from 5th graders through 8th graders. To obtain a position of a robotics team, students must fill out an application and complete a rubric. Applications are due in February for the following year.
BRMS has an Extended Day Program for students who need a place to be after school. Students work on homework, have time for group activities, exercise and a daily snack. For information please contact the school at 355-1900 .
