Maricopa High School will soon add an aquatic sport to its athletic department.

The MHS swimming and diving team will form this fall with practices and home meets to be held at Copper Sky’s aquatic center, said Maricopa Unified School District Athletic Director Brain Winter.

MUSD has advertised varsity and assistant swim coaching positions online. Winter said he expects to begin screening applicants next week.

The season is expected to begin in early August with daily practices at 3:30 p.m. A meet schedule is not yet completed.

The high school will lease the space from Copper Sky Aquatic Center.

“Depending on the number of swimmers we have at MHS, we will be utilizing the number of lanes that are needed,” Winter said.

Another partnership with Copper Sky produced space this spring for the high school’s first girls’ beach volleyball team, headed by coach Jecksan Quinones.

The team will use Copper Sky’s sand courts for its inaugural season, “but (we) are hopeful to have a couple of sand courts built on the HS campus sometime in 2018,” Winter said in a November interview.

MHS beach volleyball plays its first game away against Valley Vista Feb. 21. The team’s first home game at Copper Sky is Feb. 26 at 4 p.m. against Chandler.

“We are excited to partner with Copper Sky to make these offerings available to our students at MHS,” Winter said.
