Mr. Rick Bean

Director of Athletics

Mr. Rick Bean is a lifelong Portsmouth resident and graduate of Saint Patrick's and Portsmouth High School. He attended the University of Hawaii and The University Of New Hampshire, where he graduated with a degree in Recreation and Parks Administration. Mr. Bean's extensive athletic background includes coaching at all levels, middle school through High School Varsity, and general managing the Mavericks baseball program. He was also a certified New Hampshire Basketball official and spent 15 years involved with Portsmouth Little League. His goal as Director Of Athletics is to promote the physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, social and moral development and well-being of our student athletes. His philosophy is to never, ever judge a student's performance based on a scoreboard or scorebook, while providing the opportunity for students to reach their highest level of athletic potential. This is carried through quality instruction to gain knowledge, practice time to refine skills based on their new knowledge, and game time to test their newfound combination of knowledge and skill.
