The philosophy of the Athletic Department is no different from the mission of Malden Catholic. Athletics is an extension of the academic day. Coaches are expected to be teachers, who not only teach the proper techniques of their sport, but also build character and prepare our young men and women athletes to carry the values they learn into adult life.
The values of sportsmanship and class are a foundational part of Malden Catholic Athletics. Student-athletes are taught never to get involved in a dialogue with an opposing player, coach, fans, or game officials. They are taught to win with grace and accept defeat with class! Student-athletes will play hard, but fair and clean; they will learn self-discipline, sportsmanship, teamwork, persistence, and responsibility.
Our coaching staff conduct themselves with dignity at all times. We expect our coaches to act at all times as role models for student-athletes, so that they may learn proper behavior in all types of situations, especially in the face of adversity.
The athletic experience at Malden Catholic should be an enjoyable and memorable part of a student's time with us. Our staff works to see that everyone involved with athletics at Malden Catholic leaves with a positive feeling about themselves, their team, and the entire Malden Catholic Athletic Program.
Coaches, whether dealing with a student-athlete, a fellow coach, or an official, are called to reflect the same commitment to the purposes and objectives seen in the school Mission. Participation on an athletic team can be a rewarding experience. It is important that students realize the time demands, dedication, and sacrifices on an athletic team before making this commitment.
