St. Mary Athletics
March 23, 2018

THANK YOU! I would like to thank all of our parents and students, former parents and students, friends of St. Mary, and staff that helped out and participated in our St. Patrick’s Day Golf Outing at Compass Pointe. The day was filled with fun, excitement, and friendly conversations. We are working on getting a final count of the profits. I hope we were able to raise enough funds to cover the new state-of-the-art scoreboard we would like to have installed. Everyone worked hard to make the day a success!

BOYS’ SPRING TENNIS: Our boys’ team has played 2 matches so far and are waiting for the weather to cooperate so they can play more matches. It is hard to post the matches since it’s a day-to-day wait to see what happens with the weather.

ATHLETIC AWARDS BANQUET: Thursday, May 31, 2018, is the date of our Athletic Awards Banquet in the Upper Room. There is a SignUp Genius attached so you can sign up to help with this event. Please sign up, then attend an early evening meeting to discuss the event and form committees. If you would like to help organize this event, go to the link below. I’m excited about this traditional end-of-the-year event honoring our athletes. www.signupgenius.com/go/60b054baaac2ea46-stmary

FALL ATHLETIC TEAMS: Yes, I am already working on the fall season. We hope to have our powerful Coed Cross Country team (grades 4-8), our Girls Volleyball Team (grades 6-8), and our Girls Tennis Team (grades 6-8). Sign-up sheets will go out in April. Practices for these teams begin in August since the season starts the last week of August or the beginning of September. Any questions, please get in touch with me at
viollisa@thestmaryparish.org.

COACHES FOR NEXT YEAR: We are going to need coaches for girls’ volleyball, girls’ basketball, and girls’ cheerleading. In addition, we will need a boys’ basketball coach. If you are interested in any of these positions, please get in touch with me. Experience and knowledge of the game in each of these team sports is necessary. You need to be available to practice two days after school and be able to attend the home and away contests after school. A background check is mandatory prior to working with our children. As of now, all coaching positions are on a volunteer basis. If you, or someone you know, would consider any of these positions, please have them contact me.

CHANGES TO THE GYM: The gym will undergo a few changes over the spring break. We will be repairing and painting the front steps, as long as the weather cooperates. We will be adding a television set up in the concession stand so workers can watch the games while volunteering. Cameras will be installed on the doors for security purposes.
