Athletics is recognized as an integral part of the Elsberry R-2 School District's total educational program. Research shows that sports help kids learn to think critically, solve problems, and promote self-discipline and respect for others, all of which help build character. Participation in sports also reduces anxiety and depression in students, raises self-esteem, and deters bad behaviors and truancy.

The Elsberry R-2 School District has a variety of sports available for student participation. We encourages students to participate in extracurricular activities to broaden their educational horizons, and to get the most out of their educational experience. For questions about our Athletic Programs, contact our Athletic Director, Kari Koch-Dowell.

Elsberry Athletics Handbook


The Multi Sport Participation Policy allows students to participate in up to three (3) sports/organizations during the same season, regardless if the sports are individual or team oriented. If a student desires to participate in multiple sports during the school year, they must do the following prior to the start of any season:

  1. Obtain permission from his/her parent or guardian to compete in multiple sports at the same time.

  2. Request permission from coaches of the sports he/she is hoping to compete in

  3. Complete the "Multi Sport Participation Contract" and return it to the Athletic Director.

It is the goal of the Athletic Department to have continuous communication between student athletes, coaching staff, and the Athletic Department to avoid putting athletes in difficult situations. We are also aiming to hold student athletes accountable for which sports take precedence over another.

If you quit a primary sport, you will not be able to participate in any of the secondary sports from the point forward. If you quit a secondary sport, you will only be able to participate in the primary sport from that point forward.

Multi Sport Priorities

1. Games come before practices.

2. Tournaments come before games.

3. Districts come before games and tournaments.

4. State comes before all else.
