"The Little School that Skis Big"
The phrase above has been used to describe our Nordic ski team who benefited for many years from practicing at Pineland Farms, one of the best cross-country ski venues in Maine. Coached by John Tarling, a top masters skier in the Maine Nordic community and twice named as the Portland Press Herald's Coach of the Year and Assistant Coach Sam Kapala, our girls’ team has won the Class C State Championships for seven years running and the boys team for five!

At Maine Coast, we take our frisbee seriously. Coached by Rich Young, president of Maine Ultimate, our co-ed team is on the cutting edge of this growing sport.
In Ultimate, team members make their own calls, relying on close cooperation between players on both sides rather than on referees. This cooperative element of the game, combined with its hard-playing style, makes it a good fit for our school, where sportsmanship and athleticism go hand-in-hand.
Our Ultimate team has been the proud recipient of multiple Spirit Awards for good sportsmanship over the past few years.
