A Christ-centered communityhave fun, develop individual and team skills, and gain school spirit from competition
If your student is participating in Athletics this year (Fall- co-ed Soccer, Winter- Boys Basketball and Girls Cheerleading, Spring- Track and Field (for both boys and girls), you will need to print and read all of the online forms linked below, complete and turn all into the office with the fee by the deadline for each sport for your athlete to be eligible to compete.
For Soccer and Basketball, 5th graders will be given the opportunity to develop their skills in practice time with the team, with the amount of competition game time they play at the coach’s discretion. For Track and Field, 5th graders compete against other 5th graders, so potential limitation is not an issue for this particular sport. At MCS, Athletics is a privilege, NOT a right. This means that parents and athletes need to be aware of the expectations that govern the program. Besides the forms that you will find online, respect for coaches, the Athletic Director, and school Administration are incredibly important for the success of each team. Athlete (& parent) behavior and responsibilities to the team are taken seriously. MCS values each member of the team, and as such, we will not tolerate any conduct that undermines a teammate, coach, or school representative. The desire is that the athletes have fun, develop skills appropriate to their sport, make individual and team improvements physically, emotionally, and spiritually, and gain school spirit from competition. We also need parent involvement to make the program happen— from transportation to helping your athlete keep on top of academics and staying in communication with the coaches and Athletic Director, everyone has to pull together to make it possible! Keep up to date on the website.
If you should have any questions, comments, concerns, or just need help with participating in Athletics, please contact the office at 360-794-8200 and we will direct your call to the coach.
