Athletic Practices, Competitions/Contests, Events


    Athletic practices and most contests will be held during the week.  Practices will begin after school and end around 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday. Contest times may officially begin at 3:30pm, but may vary depending on location, weather, transportation, and duration.  You may contact our school’s office or your child’s coach to verify the information at any time during school or office hours. 

    Basketball, football, soccer, wrestling, and volleyball are divided into two or more squads: varsity and junior varsity. Basketball, soccer, and volleyball will typically have games on Tuesday/Thursdays. Wrestling, swimming, track, and cross country will have their contests on Wednesdays typically. Football game days are primarily on Fridays. 

    Student-athletes will have the opportunity to play for either squad. Dual contests will typically begin with varsity matches, but be sure to confirm with the team's coach. Football varsity and junior varsity will both begin at 3:30p.m, but are played in different locations (usually opposite locations). All other sports teams begin collectively at 3:30p.m.

Athletic Transportation

  • If your child qualifies for OPS transportation, they will be provided a bus from Bryan Middle School after practice or contests to their designated after school stop.  This information will be given to the student on the first day of practice.  For away contests or events, all students will be provided transportation to the destination and back to Bryan Middle School. Students qualifying for transportation will be dropped off at their designated stop. Although this will usually be their home address, some stops may vary due to high traffic areas. In addition, due to other transportation related factors, student-athletes will arrive home at a later time. This can be confirmed by the student at school or call the front office at 531.299.2300 


  • Each student-athlete will receive a competition uniform at no charge and additional locker, if necessary, during the season. These uniforms should remain at school. Students involved in an extra-curricular activity other than sports may have a uniform associated with their club or organization.  Students are responsible for any items not placed in their lockers.  For practices and/or meets, it is highly recommended that appropriate footwear, swimwear, or additional clothing be worn and properly stored. We don't want anyone to have their personal or school items come up missing!  Coaches or activity sponsors will provide their students a list of recommended items at the beginning of each activity, sport, or season. If any issues should arise in obtaining any of these items please contact the school. 


  • Cancellations regarding all extra-curricular activities, including athletics, will be made before 12:00pm on the day of the activity.

    For extreme heat, we will follow the Wet Bulb Globe Thermometer (WBGT) protocols established by the Nebraska State Athletics Association (NSAA) and the Omaha Public Schools. This process will be led through the Bryan Middle School athletic office in coordination with any Omaha Public School guidelines. Our main goal is for safe participation for all students in all endeavors during school! Please contact the school with any questions! 

Extra-curricular Activities

  • Students will have the opportunity to participate in many after school activities other than sports throughout the year. If sports aren't your thing, no problem! Hopefully there is something for everyone! There is a list of clubs that meet throughout the year. Offerings will update and change throughout the year. Inquiries can made during school hours by contacting the school office. 
    Strong academic standing and respectful behavior are expected for participation. Announcements will be made during the school day so it's important for students to listen to when their after school activity begins. Information regarding the club, organization, or activity will be sent home or made available prior to it's first day or on the first day by the activity sponsor. Many of Bryan Middle School's after school activities last longer than a semester.  

    Please feel free to contact the school if you should happen to have any questions. Hope to see you out there!
