Education Beyond the Classroom
Instead of a teacher, a coach. Instead of a classroom, a field. Instead of a test, a game. The athletic experience at CM is as valuable as the academics. Our athletic programs motivate students to experience the benefits of team unity, the value of a competitive spirit, and the thrill of individual accomplishment. CM's athletic programs have a long and triumphant history, and our Knights have earned a well-deserved reputation as strong competitors and outstanding sportsmen.
Catholic Memorial Athletics fields teams in 15 sports offered by the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA). CM is a member of the highly competitive Catholic Conference League. In addition to varsity teams, we also offer junior varsity, freshman and Middle School teams in various sports.
|The philosophy of the Athletic Department is no different than the mission statement of the school. Athletics are considered to be an extension of the academic school day. All of our coaches are expected to be teachers who not only teach proper techniques of their sport, but who also work to build character and prepare young men to carry the Christian values they learn at CM into their adult life. The Athletic Department believes that participation in sports provides a wealth of opportunities and experiences. If you have any questions regarding our program, please contact the Athletic Department at 617-469-8004.|

Coaches decide who will play at the varsity level based upon their assessment of an athlete’s skills, commitment, and attitude. This assessment continues throughout the season and can result in an athlete moving among levels.
The Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) sets starting dates and limitations for athletic seasons. The fall season starting date is the Monday before Labor Day. The winter season begins the Monday after Thanksgiving. The spring season begins the third Monday in March. Catholic Memorial teams begin practice and tryouts on or shortly after these dates.
