Athletics

Students at St. Mary’s are strongly encouraged to participate in our 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. On weekends, we offer ball hockey, soccer and tennis.

In the Elementary School, students from 4th grade onwards also take part in an annual ski trip to St. Mary’s ski lodge in Gunma prefecture, as part of the regular academic program.

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 that are members of the Kanto Plain Association of Secondary School Principals (KPASSP). St. Mary’s teams — called the Titans — are competitive, winning many titles in the past several years.

Athletic competitions are not limited to the KPASSP. A few of our sports teams engage in friendly competitions with Japanese and non-KPASSP schools.
