STM Basketball season starts with practices as early as October and ends with the Championships in March. Come shoot the ball and dribble passed some of our local rivals. Our program has a long standing success in both boys and girls teams over the years. Be proud to play for your school on both the boys and girls teams from 3rd grade beginner to 8th grade Varsity!!
All 3-8th graders are invited to join the cross country running team. The practices will be held on weekend mornings at Abingdon Elementary School in Arlington or at STM in the parking lot. There may be one or two practices on trails. Practice is once weekly for an hour. Virtus trained parents are needed to assist with practice and those hours can be used for your required annual volunteer hours for the school. Runners need to wear comfortable running attire and shoes for practice. BRING WATER.
The distances for the meet are as follows:
3-4th Grade - 1K
5-6 Grade - 2K
7-8 Grade – 3K
The meet is tentatively scheduled for the first weekend in November at Burke Lake Park. Practices will usually be on Saturdays at 9am.
There are 3 forms on the STM website that need to be filled out. Additionally, there is a $10 participation fee payable to STM CYO. Please either return to the school office, or bring to the first practice.
