Sports At Busch Middle School of Character
Busch Middle School of Character has enjoyed a long history of athletic excellence. In fact, before becoming a school of character, we were known as AAA Busch, a school that focused on athletics and sportsmanship. Though academics and character education have moved to the forefront of our focus, we still pride ourselves on having an excellent athletic program. Our program is run by extremely experienced professionals, Coach Franklin and Coach Diehl, who specialize in middle school athletics. Each year staff give their time to coach a variety of sports, and students, staff, and families come out to cheer the Bobcats on to victory at each event.
Busch offers three seasons of sports for our students:
- Fall- Boys Soccer and Girls Volleyball
- Winter-Boys and Girls Basketball
- Spring-Flag Football and Girls and Boys Track
