Welcome to the SMOW Knights’ School Athletic Program

The athletic program at St. Mary of the Woods is an extension of the educational curriculum and was created with Christian sportsmanship as its core value. SMOW teams play in the City Suburban Catholic Conference (CSCC) which adheres to a "no-cut" participation philosophy, offering equal playing time for 5-6 grades and average playing time for 7-8 grades.

The SMOW program encourages participation from students in 5-8 grades, offering a variety of sports including:

         Fall - soccer and cross-country

         Winter - basketball and volleyball

         Spring – softball, baseball, track and golf


The continued and future success of the school athletic program depends upon the commitment of both parent and non-parent coaches, and the participation from our vibrant Catholic school community. Our Athletic Board manages these programs and ensures all coaches and volunteers are compliant with Archdiocese Virtus training and other prudent measures for protecting the students. The SMOW athletic program is subject to the authority of our Pastor and Principal and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex, national or ethnic origin.

We appreciate the efforts of so many to offer the wonderful opportunity for students to be a “Knight” and represent our school. The Athletic Board meets monthly and welcomes your feedback as we continue to improve our school sports programs.

Go Knights!

Athletic Board President
