General Athletics Information

Welcome to Menlo-Atherton Athletics!
We welcome all interested students to get involved in sports at M-A. Here is some information to help get started.  Go Bears!  
All prospective student-athletes must turn in an Athletic Clearance Packet prior to try-outs for any team.  Due dates for athletic packets are generally one week prior to the start of each season’s official start date.  
Try-outs for most sports last 3-7 days.  Our goal is to provide an opportunity for as many student-athletes as possible to participate in athletics.  Unfortunately due to our limited facilities, we are unable to have a spot for everyone, and cuts are made in most athletic programs.
Total enrollment of the school:  1,081 female, 1,140 male = 2,221 total
Number of pupils enrolled at the school who participate in competitive athletics:  437 female, 588 male  = 1,025 total (46% of total enrollment)

Our Athletic Program is not fully funded by the school/district.  We rely on the fundraising efforts of our ATHLETIC BOOSTERS to fill the gap.  The Athletic Boosters pay for most of our assistant coaches, all of our head Freshman team coaches, all of our uniforms, and much of our equipment.
