St. Mary’s High School Athletics Handbook serves coaches, prospective student-athletes, athletics representatives, parents of our nine varsity sports, and all student-athletes. We ensure that the integrity of St. Mary’s is upheld by cultivating an educational atmosphere of excellence, faith, consistency, and responsibility in adherence to the guidelines set by the Missouri State High School Activities Association and Archdiocesan Office of Catholic Education and Formation.
St. Mary’s High School Athletics strives to be one of the most visible, respected, and accomplished programs in the state. A successful athletics program serves as a uniting facet for the St. Mary’s community and enhances exposure all while deepening a tradition of pride. SSC athletics will represent St. Mary’s High School and its proud heritage with a commitment to excellence in the classroom, in competition, and in the community.
St. Mary’s High School encourages student-athletes to participate in multiple sports.  The enrollment of St. Mary’s High School allows every student-athlete the opportunity to participate in high school athletics. Participation is vital to remain competitive and give our student-athletes the greatest opportunity to succeed.
Participating in more than one sport allows the student-athlete to experience different coaching styles, develop new skills, cross-train muscle groups, develop improved levels of conditioning, and embrace important relationships among many teammates.  It is the hope of South Side Catholic Athletics that the student-athlete grows physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally.


St. Mary’s High School, a Catholic educational community in the Marianist tradition, celebrates the dignity and uniqueness of every person, cultivates lifelong learning and the pursuit of excellence, fosters faith, inspires commitment to service and justice, and works to develop a life-giving relationship to the world.
The St. Mary’s Athletics Department strives to support this mission by developing athletic programs designed to strengthen the student-athlete physically, spiritually, and mentally. The athletic department is dedicated to cultivating all student athletes with a focus on hard work, discipline, and class.
