Athletics

Welcome to St. Mary’s After-School Athletics

We believe athletics play an integral role in the mental, physical, and spiritual development of young adults. Athletics teach critical life lessons and skills, such as discipline, cooperation and teamwork, time management, dedication, morality, compliance with rules, and proper work ethics.

Thus, we encourage all our students to participate in school athletics, from intramural sports to varsity competition. We also encourage our students to participate in multiple sports, rather than focusing on only one activity.

Students in grades 5-8 have an opportunity to participate in after-school sports. St. Mary, Star of the Sea School participates in the North County Parochial League. Grades 5/6 compete at the junior varsity level; grades 7/8 at the varsity level. The following sports are offered:
