During this time of increasing tension and inequality, The MacDuffie Athletics Department is reconfirming its support for inclusion and a commitment in our stand against social injustice and racism. We stand alongside our student-athletes, coaches and staff regardless of race, gender, religion, nationality or beliefs. Our MacDuffie Mustangs family is unified to demonstrate respect and equality for all. We are committed to listen and to support each other so our student-athletes can play and learn in a positive and judgement-free environment. We are determined to help make our community and society a better place for all our members.
Our after-school interscholastic athletic program is an important part of a student’s educational experience. We offer a variety of teams for both boys and girls during all three seasons. The Varsity program provides a competitive team experience where outcome and achievement are a high priority. All students are encouraged to participate, regardless of their skill level.
MacDuffie Athletics is committed to promoting the ideals of sportsmanship, respect, leadership, and integrity. Our goal is to build individual athletic ability, increase physical fitness, and help gain a sense of community.
In 2019 Neil Domer-Shank joined the MacDuffie athletic department staff, serving as the Assistant Athletic Director and Head Baseball Coach, teaching physical education classes, and working with student leadership development. “Coach D” spent the last 6 years in a similar role at The Master’s School, and before that was a Youth and Family Services/Camps Director in the Greater Hartford YMCA. Coach D is the president of the Northeast Dragons Baseball Club, and coaches for Connecticut Diamonds softball. In his rare spare time, he writes novels, plays banana-grams with his kids and raucously cheers on the Ohio State Buckeyes. Neil and his wife Laura – an educational psychologist – live in East Granby, CT with their three children, Cameron, Larkyn and Ella.
