SMA Athletic Department

 

The athletic department at St. Mary’s Academy is committed to providing our students with an athletic experience that builds character in accordance with the principles of the Catholic Faith. This area of education supports the academic formation of the intellect in our students.

The aim of both academic and athletic education is to establish a foundation in the forming of personality and character. Participation in the interscholastic athletic programs is a privilege reserved for students in good academic standing. Participation in intramural athletic programs is reserved for Assumption Chapel student parishioners.

Students will learn respect for authority, to take responsibility for their actions, and to display self discipline at a level which promotes growth by developing loyalty, pride, integrity and commitment.

Athletics provides the opportunity for student athletes to exhibit a progression of physical skills and knowledge of a particular sport, enabling them to apply these skills and knowledge to new situations in a variety of learning formats.
Through participation in athletics, the student-athlete learns that the Catholic Faith infuses all that he does and that individual and liturgical prayer will bring him closer to God. The student-athlete must be conscious of the call to be a leader and representative of the Faith and to acknowledge his active role in contributing to the positive spirit of the school.
