Play Freshman Football at Costa!
Has your 8th grader thought about playing freshman football at Mira Costa? It's a no-cut sport so everyone makes the team! The best way to learn more about the program is to participate in the summer football conditioning program (no pads/no tackle). The summer program is a great way for incoming freshmen to get fit, learn basic fundamentals, meet new friends and cultivate a sense of connection to Mira Costa before school even starts. Registration for summer conditioning opens Thursday, April 15 through MBX. Check this Costa Football Summer Fact Sheet to learn more and to register!
