Sportsmanship, responsibility, accountability, and leadership: These
values are as important as the skills training, sports drills, and
scrimmages that we practice every day at our Sports Clinics.
Athletes, ages 8-15, can practice skills, learn strategies, and
improve overall performance. Our clinics balance teamwork with
individual improvement, with the goal of developing the athlete�s
skills and knowledge of the specific sport. With Malden Catholic
leading the way, we expect our coaches to be teachers of life's
lessons and role models, ready to demonstrate how to win with grace
and to accept defeat with class. This non-denominational program
strives to offer athletes the chance to learn new skills or master
established ones in a different sport each week, including baseball,
lacrosse, soccer, golf, tennis, ice hockey, and basketball.
