SMMCS belongs to the GHCAA (Galveston-Houston Catholic Athletic Association). The GHCAA is a competitive league. All coaches, parents and friends of SMMCS who wish to volunteer their help for any sport MUST be VIRTUS trained. All coaches, students and parents who participate in sports at SMMCS must abide by GHCAA league rules. Questions regarding athletics should be directed to the coach or Athletic Director.
Participation in sports requires a serious commitment. Academics and behavior requirements must be met for eligibility. Athletes must be passing all classes with no lower than a 78% at Progress Report or Report Card time. Athletes must also have satisfactory conduct. Any student who has a grade of 77% or below or has unsatisfactory conduct (1 U or 2 N’s) at report card time will be placed on probation. If at progress report time, the student has not brought up the grade(s) or does not have a satisfactory conduct grade in all classes, he/she will remain ineligible until all markings are satisfactory at the next reporting period. Students must be in attendance for at least ½ of the school day in order to participate in an extracurricular activity. Any exception to this rule will be made by the administration.
