Middle School Athletics
In 5th and 6th grade PE, we have a 2-week sports unit separated by a 1-week lifetime activity unit. During the 2-week unit, we focus on sport-specific skill instruction and move into small-sided games. In our lifetime unit, we do things such as bowling, frisbee, yoga, etc. We ask that the students show up daily with their PE uniforms to change into, appropriate footwear, and a water bottle for proper hydration. Our goal is to promote movement, teamwork, and communication as they move through PE before entering Athletics.
- All seventh-grade students will participate in a sport during all three seasons (fall/winter/spring).

- The Cardio class option (available during all three seasons) can be taken during one season of eighth grade only in lieu of a team sport.
The HJPC is the Houston Junior Preparatory Conference in which Kinkaid Middle School student athletes compete in fall, winter, and spring sports. The Conference members include 12 Houston schools.
