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 pre-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 may participate in tackle football. Boys may also start participating in basketball in 4th grade. Girls in grades 3rd through 5th may participate in pep squad while girls in grades 6th through 8th may choose to participate in cheerleading. Starting in 5th grade, in addition to tackle football and basketball, boys may participate in cross country and track. Girls in grades 5th through 8th may participate in basketball, cross country, volleyball and track. We also offer swim team as a school sport for boys and girls in grades 5th-8th. Swim practices and meets will take place at Crawfish Aquatics. We also offer girls' middle school soccer for girls in grades 5th-8th.
