St. Mary Athletics
Mr. Tony Viollis – Athletic Director
Hours: M-Th  3:00-6:00 pm
August 24, 2018

Welcome to St. Mary School: I would like to welcome back our returning families and at the same time welcome all the new families to our St. Mary family. I call us a family because we truly work together like a family with the children our main concern. My goal is to give them what I can in regard to a safe, fun, and enjoyable athletic program. I want them to be excited when they play on one of our teams. Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions about our athletic programs and how you might be able to help. My email is viollisa@thestmaryparish.org

Thank you to the families and young athletes who stopped in the gym on Orientation night to say hello for the first time and to everyone who wanted to see what is new and exciting in the gym. I know it was hot, but I always appreciate a friendly smile when you come by. Please come to support our Falcon athletes this year!

Fall teams: Our fall teams for this year will be Girls Volleyball (grades 6-8) and Coed Cross Country (grades 4-8). We will not be able to have a girls’ tennis team due to only a few interested players. We may have an intramural team for girls in grades 5-8 if we have an enough interest. If your daughter would like to be a part of an intramural tennis program, please get in touch with me.

Spirit Wear and Spirit Wear Day: JoAnn Daley has emailed everyone the new spirit wear flyer. We are bringing back our school spirit wear clothing for children as well as adults. If you need an order form, please contact me or JoAnn (in Tileston). We are going to have a monthly Spirit Wear Day. So be sure to get a t-shirt, sweatshirt, or polo to wear. Please also wear your Spirit Wear around town to show your pride in our school……the St. Mary Falcon Family.  st-mary-school-t-shirt-order-form-2018-fillable

Athletic Boosters: We need parents to keep our Athletic Boosters alive. We are planning a membership drive soon. We can all work together and come up with ideas to stimulate growth and excitement for our kids in our athletic programs. There are special perks for members!  There is nothing better than to see our young athletes excited about something new.

Sign up Genius: As volleyball season begins, we will need help with our home games. With the SignUp Genius, it’s easy to check the dates, and sign up to help. It is rewarding for the children to see their parents helping out, and it makes everything run smoothly for the team. Please contact me with questions. I am in the gym after school Monday through Thursday from 3:00-6:00 pm. Stop in and let’s chat. Volleyball sign up: www.signupgenius.com/go/60b054baaac2ea46-falcons

 Scoreboard Training: There will be a brief ½ hour training session explaining how to use our new scoreboard on Tuesday, September 4, after school. Let me know if you would like to come, or just meet me in the gym around 3:15. 

Basketball and Cheerleading: We would love to bring back our girls basketball program this year. All interested girls in grades 6- 8, please let me know. We are too good not to have a team.

Boys basketball sign-up is underway as well. If your son is in grades 4-5 (Junior Varsity) or 6-8 (Varsity), have them submit the 3 required forms for the upcoming exciting new season. Cheerleading will begin shortly. As soon as I have the information, I will pass it along to you.
