Our middle school football team began practicing this past Monday, August 22nd. If you know of anyone still interested in middle school football, have them contact Coach Needle at

Our middle school boys soccer, girls soccer and field hockey teams will begin on the first day of school; Tuesday September 6th.

Field Hockey 2:30pm-4:00pm
Girls Soccer 2:15pm-3:30pm
Boys Soccer 3:45pm-5:15pm

Practice times for the remainder of that week will be distributed on the first day of practice. Tentative game schedules can be viewed on; Go to School Lookup; Select Athol High School; schedules can also be access on phones via your App Store; Search for MIAA App.

Communication is the key to success and I invite you to contact me or our coaches any time should a reason arise. If you need to reach me please free to email me anytime at You may also call or ext me directly on my cell phone at 978-660-4809. The only additional thing needed to be ready to practice on Tuesday September 6th is to ensure that your player has a valid (within last 13 months) athletic physical, and that a copy of it is on file with the school. If you don’t know, you can either contact Sally Quinton , or bring a copy to the first practice.
