Hi Everyone,

  • The MIAA mandated sports information night is scheduled for Tuesday June 4th at 7:00 in the Fowler auditorium. At this meeting, I will be discussing the MIAA rules, the Student-Athlete Handbook, the 2013-2014 athletic offerings, the new scheduling website,  and the summer training program. Attendance is mandatory in order to be eligible for the 2013-2014 season.
  • Starting June 24th, the Maynard Athletic Department will be running a Strength and Conditioning Program at Fowler. The program will be run by Corianne Zerbey, a former MHS student-athlete and certified personal trainer. The morning conditioning session will be available for students in grades 6-12 and run from 10-11am (M,T, Th,F).The afternoon strength and conditioning program will be available for students in grades 9-12 and run for an hour and half starting at 4:00PM or 4:45PM(M,T, Th,F). The cost of the conditioning sessions will be $150 for the summer and the cost for the strength and conditioning sessions will be $200 for the summer. Scholarships and special pro-rated fees will apply. Please email me for details or register online using the following link.
  • The Maynard Athletic Department is looking for new championship banner sponsors. The department will be purchasing new and improved banners for the gym next year, and to help defy the cost, the department is asking people to sponsor a banner. A plaque will be created and mounted in the gym to commemorate the banner sponsors. If you, or a local organization would like to sponsor a banner, please contact me. The banners are $225 per banner.
  • Food for thought: "I hated every minute of training, but I said, 'Don't quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion." Muhammad Ali
That is all for now, thanks for listening! Happy Spring!
