New for 2017-2018
Cheerleading tryouts will be conducted over a 3 day period. On the first two days, candidates will practice arm positions, jumps, and learn two chants and a dance. A review of the material and stunt practice will take place on the third day. During these 3 days, candidates will practice showmanship and performances of the material they have learned. Depending on the number of candidates, a cut may be made after the 2nd day at the discretion of the COACH.
* Though judges may be brought in daily during tryouts to evaluate candidates, Cabarrus County Schools’ policy states that the use of outside evaluators is NOT mandated and the coach has final discretion on who makes the team. Judges will not be used for the 2017-18 season.
Rising 6th grade students are being asked to fully participate in the Cabarrus County Public Library’s summer reading program. Students at the elementary and middle schools have received information within the past few weeks.

In addition to completing an athletic packet and having an updated physical, it is required that all athletes have at least one parent attend an athletic parent meeting before they participate in sports at MPHS. Parents are only required to attend one general parent meeting per year, regardless of how many sports their child participates in. Meeting dates for this summer are Tuesday, June 20 and Tuesday July 25. Both meetings will be held at 7:00pm in the MPHS Auditorium.
