“The performance of the school in the recently concluded PRISAA Unit Meet was really great, considering that it was just the debut of the school in this prestigious competition… However, these were not possible without the guidance of their highly-skilled coaches; they really guided and honed the skills of our students which manifested in their performance… Further, the morale of the players boosted also because of the enormous support they received from the administration.” 

The coaches and assistant coaches in charge of training MapúaMCM’s student-athletes are Teacher-Coach Ralp R. Pizana for Swimming, Coaches Albert Lagunday and Earl Clive Dacal for Volleyball, Cesar Glenn Josio for the Singing Solo and Duet, and Coach Claribel P.
