Winter sports season is around the corner!  This year O’Maley Boys and Girls Basketball will be open to all O’Maley students, Grades 6-8.  This has historically been the case, and will continue, for O’Maley Hockey.  The MIAA has also granted several “Middle-Level” Waivers opening high school sports participation to student-athletes in Grade 8 and in the case of the GHS Swim/Dive team, Grades 7 and 8.

Please check out the offerings below and follow the instructions to register.  Contact the sport coach listed below for assistance. 

All are encouraged and welcome!
