Congratulations to our Student-Athletes and Coaches!!!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, which 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 highly experienced professionals, Coach Franklin and Coach Diehl, specializing in middle school athletics. Each year, staff give their time to coach various 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, Boys' Volleyball, Girls' Volleyball, Cross Country (co-ed)
Winter- Boys and Girls Basketball, Cheerleading
Spring- Flag Football, Girls Soccer, and Girls and Boys Track
