Basketball

St. Mary's Basketball Teams are open to all 4th - 8th Grade students. Teams are broken down into Boys and Girls. Players will grow and learn more than just basketball skills as they practice and play games during their season. As they are learning ball-handling skills, dribbling, and shooting skills, they will also learn about self-esteem, teamwork, and the value of hard work.

Coaches

  • Mark Csanda (7th/8th)
  • Mike Nelson (7th/8th)
  • Nicole Blakney (4th-6th)
  • Staci Whitaker (4th-6th)

Athletic Service Hours

Each family must complete 10 hours of service per athlete. This service must be related to athletics and is in addition to school service hours. This level of service is necessary for our school to be able to hold athletic events. Without everyone’s help, we can not staff all of our athletic events. Any hours of service beyond the required 10 per athlete may count toward school service hours. We are also allowing families who would like to opt-out of service hours to pay $5.00 per service hour for a total of $50.00.

Parents will be asked to sign up for home-game shifts at the parent meeting. Once you sign up for a shift, if you are not able to
work your shift, it will be your responsibility to find a substitute. In order to work at athletic events, parents must comply with all
volunteer requirements listed below.

  • All volunteers must have on file:
  • Volunteer Code of Conduct (see addendum) 
  • Background check through DCFS (CANTS form)
  • Proof of completion of the Safe Environment training or the VIRTUS Program, “Protecting God’s Children for Adults.”
