It truly is a great time to be a Buccaneer!


Our student-athletes continue to enjoy success in competition, in the classroom and in the community.  Over the past eight years, the Academy’s athletic landscape has undergone tremendous change that has resulted in unprecedented opportunities for our young men and women, including the addition of new varsity programs as well as the construction and renovation of the finest athletic facilities in the region, the Clean Harbors Athletic Center and Clean Harbors Stadium.


How can it get any better than this?  Well, it’s about to!  Thanks to the continued generosity of one of the Academy’s great benefactors, Buccaneer Athletic Hall of Famer and Clean Harbors Chairman & CEO Alan McKim, Massachusetts Maritime is embarking on a Campaign for Buccaneer Athletics that will increase competitive and recreational opportunities for the biggest and best Maritime college in the world!  As beautiful as our facility is now, imagine it with beautiful new locker rooms, additional weight room and cardiovascular space, an expanded training room area, a turf indoor soccer field and a new field house that will meet the needs for varsity athletics and intramural competition at a time when additional space is needed to keep up with our surging enrollment.  Add in new modern office space, an Athletic Hall of Fame reception area and other amenities and you have the recipe for making something that is already great even better!


The vision of Mr. McKim, Admiral Rick Gurnon, Captain Ed Rozak and the Academy’s Board of Trustees has paved the way for all of this to become reality.  And now is your chance to get in on the ground floor of something truly amazing—your gift to support the Campaign for Buccaneer Athletics will help us reach our goal of honoring our past, enhancing our present and touching our future!  Please take a moment to read the enclosed informational brochure that provides in-depth detail on the campaign and the opportunities that are available to give at any level affordable.  I know that when you learn more about all of the great things that are taking place on Taylor’s Point that you will want to be a part of it—it truly is the Buccaneer Way!


It’s been an incredible privilege for me to be a part of the Massachusetts Maritime family for 43 years and to serve in the role as Athletics Director for over a quarter century.  I can’t begin to thank you enough for your support of our cadets as they learn, grow and excel in an environment that prepares them for greatness.  The Campaign for Buccaneer Athletics is a wonderful opportunity for you to take part in something that we believe in very strongly—Pride In Our Tradition…A Tradition Of Pride.
