Mystic Valley Charter School Athletic Program

The goal of the Athletic Program is to conduct a wholesome and worthwhile activity which is consistent with, and contributes to, the mission of Mystic Valley Regional Charter School.

The challenge associated with competitive athletics creates  learning experiences that enable students to grow and mature.  Participation in Athletics at Mystic Valley is a PRIVILEGE, which carries the expectation that a student will behave in a responsible manner and follow established rules and regulations set by the administration and coaches.

Mystic Valley is a full member of the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association.  The school is proud to be a member of the organization's Good Sportsmanship Honor Roll.  For more information go to www.miaa.net .  For further information regarding athletics conult the following websites: National Federation of State High School Associations www.nfhs.org , National Collegiate Athletic Association www.ncaa.org .

In 2014-15, Mystic Valley will field teams in numerous sports.  The athletic program will feature varsity, sub-varsity, and middle school teams.

Coach Brunelli announced that "skills and drills the first Sunday was a great success. The boys had a good turn out with more expected to join us in the next 5 weeks. You can come to all the clinics or just pick a couple. The girls group was also very well attended with more hopefully to come. Both groups did some running passing drills defensive drills shooting drills and played some scrimmages. I hope to see some more eager children the next few Sundays."
