Being part of a team requires dedication, regular practice, and a commitment to one's teammates, coach, and self.
Throughout the athletic seasons at MMS, there is also a tremendous amount of team support from parents: helping with everything from carpooling and transportation, to feeding hungry players, doing admissions or book for home matches, or lending visible and vocal support as fans on the bleachers. Thank you parents - all of your help is greatly appreciated!
