The Academy requires interscholastic athletes to pay a sports participation fee for each sport that they are engaged in. The sports participation fees are $125.00 for the first sport and $25.00 for each additional sport with a $175.00 family maximum.
The school belongs to the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association and the Commonwealth Athletic Conference. It competes under the rules and regulations of these two organizations.
The Academy and the PMA Boosters conduct a recognition program at the conclusion of the school year to honor all athletes. Trophies, Letters, and certificates are given to deserving players. PMA's League, the Commonwealth Athletic Conference (CAC), also recognizes its outstanding athletes and PMA students take part in CAC recognition programs.
The M.I.A.A. requires that all students have a physical exam prior to trying out for and competing in an interscholastic sport. A current physical is valid for 13 months. If a student wishes to play a fall sport for the upcoming 2009-2010 school year, she must have taken a complete physical exam after July 27, 2008. To play a winter sport, she must have taken a complete physical exam after October 30, 2008, and to play a spring sport, she must have taken a complete physical exam after February 15, 2009.
Please note, a health history form must also be filled out by parents. The health history form does not take the place of a physical examination. Health history forms can be obtained in the PMA school nurse's office or in the main office.
For all interscholastic sports, parents must attend a pre-season meeting with the coach and Athletic Director. This is an informational meeting for parents and athletes. Parents must pay the sports fee at that time and will receive schedules and directions to the games.
The 2009-2010 sports meetings will be held at 7:00 PM in the School Cafeteria on the following dates: Fall 2008 - September 8th., Winter 2009 - TBA and Spring 2009 - TBA.
