INTEGRATED ATHLETICS: El Molino is renowned for its integrated approach to athletics, which links (1) each team with all other teams, (2) sports with academics, and (3) El Molino athletes with middle-school students. El Molino athletes are encouraged to play multiple sports, and coaches meet to coordinate goals and workouts; athletes attend tutoring sessions, and coaches track grades; athletes visit middle schools, and coaches put on youth clinics. El Molino athletes are not just part of one team but members of a whole sports program, where they enjoy playing time and one-on-one coaching.
