About Athletics



St. Mary's High School alumni can talk about the long tradition of winning and the state championships brought home to the South Side of St. Louis. St. Mary’s athletes have been a part of 200 conferences, district, regional, and state championships. St. Mary's is where a student can be a part of the team, improve skills, and prove himself on the field, court, or track. 


Winning is a byproduct of total commitment, effort, and concentration. Success has nothing to do with the final score. The goal of athletics is to be as good as possible every time you step on the court or field and improve each time, whether it is a game or practice.

Participation in athletics is a privilege, not a right. Such participation carries with it specific responsibilities that must be met to maintain this privilege. Athletics are co-curricular to the school's education program, which provides experiences that will help each young man develop physically, mentally, spiritually, socially, and emotionally. St. Mary’s must never lose sight of these reasons for building character and assisting in educational growth. If these reasons do not exist, then athletics have no part in the curriculum.
St. Mary's Athletics is pleased to offer comprehensive sports medicine services through our partner, Athletico Physical Therapy. Athletico will provide a full-time athletic trainer to assist athletes with injury prevention, assessment, and rehabilitation. For more information about Athletico's services, please click here.

The Missouri State High School Activities Association (MSHSAA) and St. Mary's High School require a current physical on file with the school office.  All physicals must be on file before a student-athlete is allowed to practice.
