On behalf of Ms. Hunter and the entire Mayewood Athletic Staff, I would like to thank our parents, teachers, administrators, support staff and fans that are passionate supporters of Mayewood Middle Athletics.  Indeed, you play an important role in the success of our programs.

The success that Mayewood has experienced over the years is due to the commitment of our student athletes, first class coaches and supportive fans.  To be a student athlete at Mayewood Middle requires a great deal of energy to balance the academic requirement with the time required on the field of play to excel.

Here at Mayewood Middle School we offer a variety of sports for both boys and girls.  Our boys’ sports programs include football, basketball and track & field.  On the girls’ side, we offer volleyball, basketball, cheerleading and track & field.

While winning games is a priority for our athletic department, learning valuable life lessons through the participation in sports is the ultimate goal.  We believe that participation in sports closely models life itself and provides an opportunity for our student athletes to grow and mature into rising high school teenagers.  Teamwork, commitment, discipline, leadership, hard work and sportsmanship are the expectation of our athletes.

Middle School Sports is like a dollar bill.  You can spend it any way you wish, but you only get a chance to spend it once.
