Athletics

Gym-class-(1)St. Mary’s Athletics is a group of St. Mary’s Academy parents and alumni that sponsor the development of youth sports within St. Mary’s Academy. Working collaboratively with parents, alumni and neighboring communities, we introduce and sustain sports teams at St. Mary’s Academy. These volunteers work to obtain the coaches and needed sponsors to enable the teams to have fun, develop new skills and promote good sportsmanship.

If you have any questions regarding sports or would like to volunteer, please feel free to email the school at jbanaitis@stmaryslongmeadow.org.
