Dragon Athletics

Students involved in athletics gain skills that benefit them not only on the field and court but in the classroom and life after high school. Students learn to set and work towards their goals and to be a part of something bigger than themselves. Our student-athletes show up, defeat their fears, and they do the work to be successful.

When a student's athletic career is complete they can expect to have skills that they will forever use. These skills include self-motivation to get better, team skills to work with others, and a drive that never allows them to quit.

  • Mountainburg Athletics serves 35% of students in grades 7-12. Students can be involved in football, basketball, softball, baseball, cheer, cross country, track, and golf. Students wishing to be a part of an athletic team should visit with the coaches and their school counselor.
