St. Mary offers countless opportunities to participate on competitive or recreational athletic teams. We participate in many sports with competitions across Ontario. Our athletes participate in Kawartha Athletics, Central Ontario Secondary School Athletics (COSSA) and Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations (OFSSA) competitions.

We encourage all of our students to reap the benefits of being physically active every day, which includes improved concentration abilities and collaboration skills. Players, coaches, spectators and referees agree to follow our Board's Code of Conduct.

Sports & Athletics at St. Mary 

We are very proud of the tradition of excellence we have forged with Thunder Athletic programs. St. Mary students are provided with many opportunities throughout the year spring to develop their athletic skills, be a part of a team, build Catholic character and enhance their personal fitness through athletic participation.

"The sole basis for the very existence of school sport programs is the contribution they make to the general educational experience of those students who participate (OFSAA)."

Research studies consistently demonstrate a strong relationship between student participation in school athletic programs and better academic performance!
