Athletics at St. Mary's
Students at St. Mary's are strongly encouraged to participate in the various sports activities. Sports are fun and offer the opportunity to develop skills, make lasting friendships, and learn the values of discipline and sportsmanship. They also promote physical fitness, competitiveness, and school pride.
Most major sports such as swimming, baseball, and basketball are introduced at the Elementary School level. Students from 4th grade onwards also take part in an annual ski trip to the school's ski lodge in Gunma prefecture, as part of the regular academic program. Meanwhile on weekends, ball hockey, soccer and tennis are also offered.
In the Middle School and High School, students begin to take part in inter-scholastic competitions spread across three seasons. St. Mary's competes with other schools which are members of the Kanto Plain Association of Secondary School Principals (KPASSP). St. Mary's teams, known as the TITANS, are competitive, winning many titles in the past several years. Athletic competitions are not limited to the KPASSP as a few of our sports teams engage in friendly competitions with Japanese and non-KPASSP schools.
In addition to inter-scholastic competitions, Middle School and High School students have the opportunity to enjoy other sports such as badminton, table tennis, floor hockey, volleyball, etc. as part of an Intramural program.
Whether it be intramural or competitive sports, St. Mary's students take immense pride in taking part in these activities. They are proud to be TITANS!
