The basketball coaching staff at St. Mary’s is committed to promote Christian values and must always keep the highest standards. The basketball program at St. Mary’s exists to enhance the development of both life and sports skills and teamwork. We recognize that the coaching staff is very significant in the social and physical development of our children and strive to provide a positive experience for all children who participate. Winning is encouraged but should never be above sportsmanship and teaching skills necessary to promote a healthy Christian life. The following are guidelines that the St. Mary’s Boosters have developed to support that policy.
Each coach has selected a practice time and gym. Players are expected to arrive early to practice, but no more than 15 minutes. It is up to each coach as to whether parents/guardians are permitted to stay or simply drop off. At least 2 Virtus-trained adults will be present for each practice or practice will not occur. Parents who are Virtus-trained may be asked to remain in the gym if a coach is running late.
Schedules should have been shared by all coaches. If you did not receive one, please contact your coach.
1st and 2nd Grade:
Theses seasons start later so schedules are still being formed. Coaches may be contacting you about December tournaments.

The 33rd Annual Saint Mary Basketball Tournament is just around the corner! Coaches will be sending information to their teams and tournament brackets (and results) will be posted here.
WHEN: December 26th - January 15th
WHERE: Games will be held at the Old Hall, School Gym and BBHS.
Throughout the tournament, we will have several theme nights, fun for children, and much more! Marty's Waffles will also be serving their famous waffles outside of the school gym on St. Mary Day! (Date TBD)
The Boosters would like to extend a special THANK YOU to all of our 2016-2017 Basketball Tournament Sponsors. Without you and your support, our tournament wouldn't be such a success!
