Welcome to Highlander Country
Press Release in regards to Fall Sports:
"After serious deliberation and discussions, the Greater Boston League has decided to participate in the Fall II season in all Fall Sports (Cross Country, Golf, Girls Volleyball, Soccer, Field Hockey, Football, Competitive Cheer and Unified Basketball) to commence at the end of February. Although this decision was not easy, we agree that safety of our student-athletes and coaches is the most important factor. There were a number of factors also that played into this decision.
1. Safety of our student-athletes, coaches, and school communities.
2. The current designation of two of our schools (Everett and Revere)
3. The limitations with scheduling.
4. The uncertainty around potential changes in Covid -19.
5. All GBL schools are currently engaged in Remote Learning.
6. The ability to provide a “true” interscholastic athletic experience with the current guidelines in place for individual sports.
7. The potential of providing a “true” interscholastic athletic experience during the Fall II season
8. The ability to provide our students with supervised and controlled opportunities to participate in outdoor activities, in our own communities, to provide an outlet for our students.
Like everyone, we are saddened that our students will not be able to participate in the traditional fall season, but optimistic that the Fall II season will be a success. Now more than ever, the MIAA has afforded member schools with as much flexibility as possible to provide an athletic experience for our students. We will continue to meet with our students and provide support and encouragement during this confusing and difficult time.
Everett - Malden - Medford - Revere - Somerville"

Spectator Code of Conduct
The Somerville Public Schools and the Greater Boston League are committed to promoting good sportsmanship, and developing and maintaining a safe and healthy environment for competition. We believe the opportunity to represent a school is a privilege, which is accompanied by the responsibility to act with dignity, integrity, and respect at all times.
Individuals associated with a (league) member institution are expected to conduct themselves in such a manner that represents the highest level of honor, and to observe the tenets of good sportsmanship: honesty, fairness, dignity, civility, and respect. Somerville leads the way in ensuring sporting events are safe and enthusiastic! Give honor and respect to student-athletes, coaches, officials, families, and fans by:
- Appreciating outstanding plays by all teams and athletes
- Supporting decisions by coaches and officials
- Showing you are a role model on the field and in the stands
- Using only positive language and gestures
- Removing your hat and remaining standing for the entire National Anthem
- Entering and exiting safely
- Not doing YOUR part to ASSURE Somerville athletic events are safe and positive may result in being told to leave or being banned from all sporting events
Focus on Athletics
The Somerville Public Schools Athletic Program intends to provide an opportunity for student-athletes to develop and display their talents through competition. All student-athletes place the highest priority on the quality of education and the successful completion of academic programs. Athletics are conducted as an integral component of the overall educational experience; with the goal of having student-athletes strive to reach their potential and give their best.
Somerville High School is a member of the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association and competes in the Greater Boston League. Students who meet all MIAA requirements and are in good academic standing at Somerville High School and Next Wave/Full Circle Alternative School are eligible to participate. For more information on eligibility go to the MIAA site. Students must have a current physical on file to participate in sport. A copy of the physical must be handed in to the athletic training office. Registration for participation can be found under the sport links.
