Athletics and Triangle Fitness

Saint Mary’s School is committed to providing a comprehensive athletic program this year and opportunities for girls to safely participate in physical fitness activities with activities planned using guidelines provided by the North Carolina Independent School Athletic AssociatIon (NCISAA) and state and local officials.

From Director of Athletics Rob Weltz |

To the Saints Community,

Each school year brings excitement and new opportunities for our students. We have all had to navigate challenges of the pandemic and, for me, it has been a time to reflect on the importance of health, fitness, and physical activity. The benefits sports provide are many: health and wellness, peer mentorship/relationships, time management, improved academics, accountability, and responsibility. The social aspects of sports are needed now more than ever. 

Saint Mary's completed a successful past year in athletics, and we look forward to the new year ahead!

Throughout the past several weeks and months, Saint Mary’s has collaborated with other independent boarding and day schools from around the southeast, the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, the North Carolina Association of Independent School (NCAIS), and the North Carolina Independent School Athletic Association (NCISAA) to develop plans and guidelines for interscholastic sports for the new school year. 

For student athletes: important reminder to complete information in Magnus Health forms: Please submit your required forms (Physical Examination Form; Consent to Treat; Health Insurance card; NCISAA Pre-Participation Physical Form; NCISAA Student-Athlete Concussion form; and the NCISAA Student-Athlete Consent to Participate form) in Magnus. Students will not be able to participate in any sports until all these forms are completed in Magnus.  These forms are required by both the state and Saint Mary’s before a student may participate in a sport. If you have any questions, please contact Magnus Parent Help Desk at 877-461-6831 or the Binder Health Center at nurses@sms.edu.  THANK YOU for your cooperation in helping us provide appropriate care for your daughter.

Sincerely,

Robert A. Weltz, CMAA
