Middle School Field Hockey started at Honey Creek 10 years ago with coach Roxy Block. This sport is open to any 6-8 grade student, male or female. During the fall season the team practices twice a week and plays games after school. We play games with Ann Arbor, Dexter and Saline middle schools and 2 private schools in Ohio. Honey Creek has competed well, for example we posted a 6-1-1 record in 2010 and a 7-3-1 record in 2011. The team worked together to raise funds for brand new uniforms and goalie equipment. Honey Creek also organizes field hockey teams through the Ann Arbor Recreation Department for students in elementary grades 3 and up and teams may play in the fall and spring.
The cross country program at Honey Creek is committed to fostering a love of running in each young athlete. Through activities and games, and through endurance running practice, cross country runners develop an understanding of proper running form, how food and oxygen contribute to muscle endurance/fatigue, and how to work together as a team to achieve goals. Athletes compete in cross country meets throughout the Ann Arbor region during the months of September and October.
Girls on the Run (GOTR) is a program to educate and prepare girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living. Volunteer coaches lead 3rd-5th grade girls through a ten week program of “fun running games and experiential activities to help girls learn about expressing themselves, making good choices, creating healthy habits and serving their community.” The capstone event of the GOTR program is a non-competitive 5K run in which the girls show what they can accomplish as individuals and as part of a team.
Additional sports opportunities are offered through the After School Program.
