Sports should be about having fun...and more.
At Mid-Pen, we view sports as an opportunity for you to learn skills, form meaningful relationships, better understand the concepts of team play and sportsmanship and, hopefully, relate to sports and recreation as a means to a healthier lifestyle.
We offer a well-rounded and competitive sports program for our student-athletes, who are well represented on all league teams. Our sports are are played at the varsity and JV level, and all students in grades 9-12 are eligible to participate.
And when we say "all students," we mean it. Mid-Pen has a "no-cut" policy; each and every Dragon who is interested in playing a sport can join a team. You can be very experienced or have no experience. Playing time is determined by practice and game attendance, attitude, and performance.
Update for 2021-2022 Athletics Season
Mid-Pen is excited to offer team sports for the 2021-2022 year. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, students are allowed to play on one team.
Mid-Pen is following the youth sports health and safety guidance provided by the California Department of Public Health.
Mid-Pen will allow parents of roster players to attend volleyball matches at Mid-Pen. Advance registration is required, and spectators must provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative PCR COVID-19 test result with the sample taken within five days of the event.
Spectators can attend soccer games and cross country meets. Masks are optional outdoors, though protocols may vary for each school and site. Per CDC, state, and county guidelines, unvaccinated individuals should wear a mask in crowded outdoor settings or during activities that involve sustained close contact with other individuals.
Mid-Pen has been a member in good standing of the Central Coast Section (CCS) since 1989. We compete in the Private School Athletic League (PSAL), a Division V League for schools with enrollments under 500. In order to compete in sports that PSAL doesn't offer like softball and track & field we sometimes join the West Bay Athletic League (WBAL) as a "supplemental member" for that particular season.
