Volunteer With Mikey's League- Unified Flag Football

Mikey's League Unified Flag Football continues on Saturdays from 9-Noon at the Arete field.

Arete Prep Athletics are proud to announce a partnership with Mikey’s League, a local unified sports community organization. A little bit about Mikey’s League…

 Mission: Mikey’s League was founded with a powerful objective: to challenge the limits placed on children with disabilities and allow them to inspire and teach us. We believe in the power of sport, and its moments of triumph, to unify, heal, and provide the confidence needed to be successful in life, regardless of challenges.

Vision: To allow all kids to play, regardless of ability. Through adapted, unified sport create an opportunity to experience triumph and success in a way that they will remember forever.
Use the following links and videos to learn more about Mikey’s League!



We are excited to announce Mikey’s League will be running an 8-week season of flag football, Saturday mornings, starting April 3rd from 9am-noon. We will be playing at Arete Preparatory Academy in Gilbert (Greenfield and Baseline). Come enjoy the outdoors with us and our friends before it gets too hot for the summer. We will be focusing on developing fundamental football skills and what it means to be a part of a team.
We will be running two divisions, one for kids around ages 10-14, and one for ages 15+.

How can the Arete Community get involved:
We are seeking volunteers to help play with, coach, and support Mikey’s League athletes. Use the following link to sign up to volunteer on one or more of our league dates. Help build community, relationships, and earn volunteer hours with us. No football experience is necessary, and we will accept volunteers of all ages. You can sign up for one week, two, all eight, or whatever works for you!

CarLife Charger of the Week:
Harrison Kremer- 7th Grade- MS Boys Basketball

Harrison has helped lead the B team to a 4-1 start to their spring '21 season. He had the game winning assist in a win over Sequoia last week, and had a great overall game in a win over Lincoln on Saturday, where we were missing a few key players. Harrison serves the team by consistently contributing points, assists, rebounds, steals, and unselfish play. He is always one of the hardest workers on the team in both practice and in games.

Congratulations Harrison!
