These athletic programs are an extension of the academic philosophy of M-CHS by teaching the values of teamwork, respect, commitment, pride, work ethic, and sportsmanship while cultivating good health, emotional maturity, happiness and social aptitude in a competitive and wholesome environment. Both athletics and academics at M-CHS put our students first by working together for educational and athletic excellence.

SOCCER BOYS & GIRLS Work-Out Schedule
As we are sure you are aware, MCHS is operating under strict covid-19 safety guidelines but has approved sports activities, including Winter training sessions for both boys and girls soccer teams, with certain restrictions. Specifically, we are running voluntary training sessions for all existing high school boys and girls soccer players beginning February 1 continuing through March 6 as follows:
  • Monday & Thursday: Indoor soccer aerobics 4:45-5:45pm (changed from 5:00-6:00pm) at Manaugh Elementary School gym. Combination of individual ball skills and core exercises set to music. This is for boys and girls combined. Participants should bring a floor mat for the core exercises. In addition, all participants must wear a Covid face mask at all times and disinfect their hands upon arrival to the school.
  • Wednesday & Saturday: Outdoor (Yes, OUTDOOR to minimize Covid risk) soccer 3:30-5:00 pm at Parque de Vida, weather dependent. Primarily small-sided games. If there are enough girls and boys we will have separate games for girls and boys; otherwise, out of necessity we will have to combine girls and boys. NOTE, if there is snow on the field or the temperatures are below ~35 degrees we will instead have indoor soccer at the Middle School auxilary gym at 7:30-9:00 pm for a Wednesday session and 3:30-5:00 pm for a Saturday session. For indoor sessions, all participants must wear a Covid face mask at all times and disinfect their hands upon arrival to the school.
  • NOTE: all participants must have a parent/guardian release form on file with the coach or the school before participating. Players that submitted a form for the Summer or Fall sessions do NOT need to submit another form . The form can be picked up at the M-CHS Activities Office.  Lastly, all new players should complete a player survey form and return to the coach. This form is also available in the M-CHS Activities office.  Contact: Kevin McGarigal - mcgarigal@eco.umass.edu
