• What are the requirements to join a team?
    Malibu High School is a member of the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF), the governing body of high school athletics and student eligibility. At MHS, participation in the athletic program is a privilege available to all 9th through the 12th-grade students. CIF student eligibility rules require students maintain a 2.0 grade-point average. In addition, students are required to receive a physical examination certifying that the student is physically fit to participate in athletics.

    How do I join an MHS Athletic Team?
    Information for prospective student athletes is disseminated in many ways - school announcements, eMHS and this website. Additional questions should be directed to the coach of your preferred sport or the Athletic Director. Informational meetings and tryouts begin well before the season and timelines vary for each sport. For fall sports, mandatory workouts and tryouts occur during the summer before school opens.

    Who are our competitors?
    As a CIF member school, division and league designations are determined by CIF according to school location, size and previous performance.

    What is the time commitment?
    Any student interested in sports must be ready for a five-day commitment each week that consists of three practice days and two game days. Some teams also participate in weekend tournaments. In addition, all sports require an off-season commitment that varies, but may include workouts and conditioning on weekends and/or during the summer, spring and winter breaks.

    Does participation in a MHS team sport supersede the MHS Physical Education (PE) requirement?
    10th-grade and 11th-grade students who participate in two seasons of team sports during a school year are exempt from the PE requirement--9th-grade students are not.
