“Don’t let good stand in the way of great” is the motto of our athletic director. Participation in sports can make a unique contribution to a well-rounded education. SMT’s physical education classes encourage a child to be focused, committed to working hard consistently, and open to constructive criticism. Students learn not to settle for what they can do, but instead to strive to do better.
SMT’s after-school sports program includes co-ed flag football, girls’ and boys’ basketball and volleyball, and co-ed track teams that participate in both the Catholic Youth Organization and other leagues involving local Catholic and private schools. Teams for third- through six-graders have no tryouts, allowing all children to try different sports and challenge themselves in a nurturing environment.
