The Acorn league is established to have a developmental sports program in which students learn the fundamentals of the sport, rules and sportsmanship among Manteca Unified elementary schools in accordance with school board policy (6145).
The Acorn athletic league is to promote the physical, mental, social, emotional, and moral wellbeing of the participants. It is MUSD's desire to prepare students through a positive environment of athletics for an enriching and vital life.
Participation is open to all students regardless of individual differences. Through voluntary participation, the athlete gives time, energy, and loyalty to the sports program. He/she also accepts the training, rules, regulations and responsibilities, which are unique to an athletic program.
