At Merrick Avenue Middle School, our athletic program offers a wide
variety of intramural and interscholastic opportunities for the entire
student body. Our intramural program runs primarily during the winter
months, and we traditionally offer snow flake football, basketball,
lacrosse, and various fitness activities. The intramural programs are
open to all students and are announced throughout the year during
homeroom and in physical education classes.
The interscholastic athletic program is comprised of four athletic seasons, and the following sports are offered:
Fall – September - October

who participate in interscholastic athletics may be required to tryout,
and they should expect to practice five days a week after school,
typically from 3-5. Athletic contests will be held at Merrick Avenue,
Brookside, other middle schools, and state parks throughout Nassau
