Please check out MMSD's Winter Sports Update Video. There is information on what to expect during the upcoming winter season.
MMSD will not be offering winter sport in-person coaching during the virtual school model. We will continue to provide opportunities in whatever means are available based on our schooling model and public health guidance as well as WIAA guidance for winter sports. General fitness, strength, mental health, academic, and social emotional connection supports will be offered by the athletic department throughout the year to all students. For further information, please see the latest statement from MMSD and from the Big 8 Conference regarding the status of Winter Sports.
All students interested in playing a winter sport this year should email the coach of the sport they are interested in (email addresses for all coaches are available on the Coaches Directory) with their full name and grade.
Online permissions must be completed by both students and parents/guardians in Infinite Campus. After completion, students may be asked to complete a physical exam or submit a doctor's note confirming physical completion. Questions regarding permissions and physicals should be directed to Athletic Secretary, Jeneene Olson-McConley.
Academic Eligibility will be based on 1st semester grades, attendance and behavior. Academic support for student athletes takes place during Study Tables on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:15-5:15pm. Contact Wilson Seely if interested.
