Welcome to the Menlo-Atherton Athletics Boosters website!
The Menlo-Atherton Athletic Boosters is a non-profit, volunteer organization which supports all athletic teams and student athletes at Menlo-Atherton High School.

Meet Coach Ramon Young
Girls Golf (Fall)
is a highly focused coach who specializes in teaching M-A athletes to hit small
things with large objects. Not only is he the girls golf coach, but he’s also
the coach for the varsity badminton team! And while Coach Young is a versatile
and dedicated coach (the last book he read was Positive Coaching), many
do not realize that he’s a very versatile athlete himself! He was swim team
captain of his high school team, and exceled in both badminton (natch!) and
tennis, winning division titles in both sports. Way to go, Coach Young!
not thinking about sports, you might be able to find Coach Young vacationing on
sunny beaches with blue seas and eating vanilla ice cream. Sounds heavenly!
Be sure to catch
Coach Young in action this spring on the badminton courts!
