Dear St. Mary Community,
On behalf of the St. Mary Athletic Department, I want to welcome all students to participate in our sports programs. Athletics provide many positive attributes in a young individual: self-esteem, leadership skills, social interactions, and education about healthy lifestyle choices. Athletics develop a greater sense of purpose by teaching teamwork, forgiveness, humility, and excellence. High school athletics provides the chance for an individual to develop physically, mentally, and socially.
The St. Mary Athletic program participates in the KHSAA (Kentucky High School Athletic Association) and is a member of Region 1. All rules and regulations handed down by these governing bodies will be adhered to at all times.
The St. Mary Athletic Department’s philosophy is that the student athlete’s pursuits on the field should be equally measured with those off of it. To that end, a St. Mary athlete should pursue personal growth through academic work, team experiences, and as an ambassador of our district. You should maintain a sense of ethical responsibility and always conduct yourself in a Christ-like manner. The department strives to maintain an outstanding athletics program, conducted in a manner that sets an example for good sportsmanship. Our primary concern is the education of the student-athlete. We expect all who choose to participate in our sports programs to be responsible student-athletes. We hope you will take full advantage of this opportunity to get a top-notch high school education while participating in our athletic programs.
