Welcome to Wilmette Junior High Athletics!

WJHS Athlete Gear

On behalf of Wilmette Junior High School and the Athletic Department, we would like to welcome you to Wilmette Junior High School Athletics. We truly believe that athletics are an integral part of the educational program for the students and their Junior High experience. The Athletic Department will provide every opportunity for the student-athletes to participate in athletics, and also provide the proper facilities as well as educated coaches.
At WJHS we have a tradition of producing competitive teams that also display good sportsmanship and character (in the classroom as well as an athletic event). Here at Wilmette Junior High School we have 3 seasons of sports (Fall, Winter, and Spring). During those seasons we have 9 different sports taking place and over 575 spots for students to participate on about 25 different teams. To be a part of our program is a commitment for the students, parents, and coaches. We strive to make the experience as positive as possible and look for a commitment from everyone involved.
If you have any questions, or if I can be of any help please do not hesitate to contact me. Thanks for being a part of Wilmette Junior High Athletics!
Go Wolves!!

Selections of teams at WJHS

Each season of sports at WJHS we offer a no cut sport (Fall-Cross Country, Winter-Boys Wrestling, and Spring-Track and Field) for any student wishing to participate. All other sports could potentially have to make cuts depending on the number of athletes trying out. We want to make sure that all kids participating have an opportunity to play so this is the reason we have limited numbers for the other sports not listed above.

At WJHS we have had the ability, since the program started, to have multiple teams in a few sports (boys/girls basketball and the last few years girls volleyball). In an effort to have all teams be competitive in their leagues they participate in we do not select true “A” and “B” teams. Since the teams play in different conferences and don’t play against each other we have found this has provided the kids with the best opportunity to improve, compete, and have fun. Typically the Blue Team will select first filling out about half their roster. Then White Team will select half their roster and to complete the process, the Blue Team will fill out the rest of their team followed by the White Team filling out the rest of their roster. This has provided the kids over the years with some great athletic memories at WJHS and we hope to keep making more.
