MBA Athletics & Fall Online Registration


MBA Middle School Athletics

                                                     2020 FALL SPORTS ANNOUNCEMENT
                                                                         September 14, 2020
MBA is accepting sign-ups for our field hockey and boys/girls cross country teams for this upcoming fall season. While our district is currently planning on hosting middle school sports, participation will be dependent upon following all of the current CIAC and state regulations for the safe re-opening of scholastic sports. Phase one will consist of conditioning and successfully implementing the re-opening guidelines from the CIAC in order to move forward to any competition in October. Cross country practices will start on Monday 9/21 at 2:30 PM. Field hockey will start on 9/28. All middle school athletes must be registered and have a valid physical, and the COVID waiver must be turned in to the coach prior to participation.

We are league members of the North Central Connecticut Conference - Middle School Division and governed by the rules of the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference (CIAC). 

 There are NO try-outs required for Cross Country (Boys & Girls) or Girl's Field Hockey; students with a current sports physical & athletic permission form on file (with school nurse) and are maintaining good academic status and conduct are welcome to join the team!

The CIAC will follow the directorates of the governor and state authorities to protect the health and welfare of student athletes as in reference to COVID-19.  "The CIAC staff will continue to meet and develop guidelines for re-socialization to fall sports. It is important for everyone to continue their efforts in maintaining social distancing and preventing the spread of COVID-19. When the time is right, CIAC will play again!"

MBA Cross Country Team - Information

MBA CC Logo

Our team emphasizes, provides guidance and encourages individual goal-setting tailored to each student-runner. Our training methods embrace the philosophy know as effort-based training.


Information For "New Runners" & Their Parents:Running Attributes

Practices are after school, 2:30 - 4:15 PM Mon. thru Fri. (some exceptions). On holidays, staff meeting days, or teacher workshop days, team practices will NOT be held. Runners are urged to run distance on off-practice & meet dates and weekends, in order to maintain and/or increase running endurance. Safe running practices must always be observed: proper footwear and clothing, safe run locations, running with a partner(s) or parent, access to water, and considering weather conditions.

Training and race runs will be both on and off the MBA campus and will include the grounds of Somers HS and the Field Road Park. It is critical that all athletes understand that off-site runs are a privilege that requires students exhibit trust-worthy behavior while moving through this expanse. Coaches will use their discretion regarding this privilege.
