Welcome to MBS Athletic Program
Welcome to MBS Athletics! Athletics can be an important part of a young person's life. It teaches discipline and self-pride while helping one realize the importance of cooperation. Athletics interact with the spiritual, social and academic components of the overall school program. MBS recognizes that support from the administration, faculty, staff, coaches, parents and fans are necessary in providing a positive Catholic athletic experience for the student athlete. At MBS all students in kindergarten through 8th grade will be given the chance to participate in extra-curricular athletic team competition. There is something for everyone. We pride ourselves in developing young athletes to be good role models both on and off the competitive playing field. We stress good sportsmanship by all (players and parents). Volunteer coaches take their time to understand who each player is while recognizing their abilities and assuring each athlete feels part of the MBS team. This, in turn, creates a positive team atmosphere and a winning attitude that everyone in the MBS community can be proud of.
At MBS we have many sports for our students to choose from. Starting in 3rd grade our 3rd and 4th grade boys and girls may participate in tackle football or pep squad. Starting in 5th grade, boys may participate in school tackle football, cross country, basketball and track. Girls may participate in basketball, cross country, volleyball and track. We also offer swim team as a school sport for grades 5th-8th. Swim practices and meets will take place at Crawfish Aquatics. New to MBS this year will be girls' middle school soccer, grades 5th-8th.
Flag football begins in the fall and is offered to girls and boys grades K-2nd. Basketball begins in December and T-ball and machine pitch begin in the spring and are offered to boys and girls grades K-4th. Adult co-ed slow pitch softball is offered in the summer. These sports are offered through our parish and anyone, even a non-MBS student may participate. Parent volunteers are always welcomed and needed to assist in these intramural programs.
