Athletics

MHS offers a variety of sports in which students can be involved. Most sports require a "try-out" or sign-up, so be sure to pay attention to important dates and critical forms that would need to be completed in advance.

MHS Athletic Medicine

Mesquite High School Athletic Medicine specializes in injury and illness prevention, assessment, nutrition, treatment and rehabilitation to every student-athlete. We are committed to being a community resource and visible leader in sports medicine services.
 

Mission Statement:

The Mesquite High School Athletic Medicine Program provides customary athletic training services to the student-athletes of Mesquite High. The services to be delivered can be broken down into five areas:

1. Prevention of Athletic Injuries
2. Recognition, Evaluation, and Immediate Care of Athletic Injuries
3. Rehabilitation and Reconditioning of Athletic Injuries
4. Health Care Administration
5. Professional Development and Responsibility

We are dedicated to using up to date expertise in the delivery of these services. We will remain committed to instruction, clinical skill development, and equipment used in the distribution of athletic training services so that our student-athletes will be guaranteed of the most modern care available.

The purpose of the Mesquite Athletic Medicine Program:

1. Allow easy access to athletic training services to each student-athlete.
2. Substantially reduce the risk of athletic injury for those student-athletes in our care.
3. Enable injured student-athletes to rehabilitate and return to their sports as soon as is medically safe.
4. Encourage a philosophy of sport that stresses health and wellness.
5. Provide a dynamic athletic training student program for possible health care professionals

The underlying philosophy for the athletic medicine program is that the needs of the student-athlete shall always be the first consideration for all members of the athletic training staff. We are committed to ongoing evaluation of our athletic medicine program so that our student-athlete can be assured of the highest quality in athletic medicine care.

MHS Booster Club

Booster Club Information

Many people hear about the booster club, but don't really understand what we do or why we do it.

Purpose: The booster club is, simply, parents and/or alumni who volunteer to work and support Skeeter athletics. Mesquite High School is rich in Mesquite history. We all truly care about MHS and the students, and we want to keep the tradition alive and pass that tradition along.

The booster club raises money to provide scholarships awarded to qualified graduating athletes each year. There are several ways in which we raise money for the scholarships:

• Selling ads, assembling and sales of the All Sports program
• Sales of Skeeter merchandise at sports events throughout the year
• Concession sales at home volleyball and basketball games

If you are interested in a business sponsorship ad in the program or would like to place a personal spotlight as for your son or daughter in the program please fill out our Program Ad form

In addition to fundraising and merchandise sales, the booster club decorates the stadium for home games, sets up the helmet & tunnel for football games, hosts and decorates the fall and spring banquets and helps providing funds for coaches that need assistance with equipment purchases.

If you are looking for a way to be involved, but just don't know what you can do, we invite you to be a part of the tradition, and join the Mesquite High School Booster Club!

Softball

MHS Softball is more than a sport, more like a passion. Red dirt and bruises are in fashion. The wind up, the pitch, scrambling defense. This is what softball is all about. Intense parents in the stands. Anxious coaches waving their hands. The swing of the bat, the ball, the bases, the glove. This is softball, the game I love!

Tennis

MHS Tennis is a true "WE ARE MAROON" sport because both Coach Howig and Coach Salazar graduated from MHS and are the proudest SKEETERS. Tennis upholds athletes to be positive, responsible, and goal setting individuals. We pride ourselves in building athletes to their highest potential physically and mentally. With this we have high hopes that our athletes will bring the same work ethics into their school/home life.
