Basketball is open to boys and girls in grades 5-8. We strive to have Varsity, JV and C teams. Try-outs for Varsity and JV are held in early November of the current school year. SMCS does not guarantee any student trying out a position on the team. This is a try out situation and therefore each student should be prepared to do his/her best. 8th graders can only tryout for Varsity. All district games will be played with other Catholic schools in our diocese. We may play other private or public club teams for scrimmages at the coaches’ discretion.
The boys’ teams will play their games on Mondays and Wednesdays.
The girls’ teams will play their games on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
There are no tryouts for the 5th grade C teams, just sign up!
