Athletic Program Overview
Chief Kanim Middle School offers a no-cut athletic program to encourage positive participation for all students. We encourage students to get involved in after-school sports to promote fun, fitness, teamwork and sportsmanship. CKMS will follow the Washington State Department of Health guidance for schools' protocols for school safety.
The CKMS athletic program is open to all students in the 7th and 8th grades and offers volleyball, soccer, basketball, wrestling, cross country and track.
