Athletics

SMC students are encouraged to participate in extra-curricular activities, including playing for the SMC sports teams. We offer soccer for Pre-K - 4th grade students through the YMCA league against other Catholic and private schools. For our middle school students, we offer the following sports for students to participate:

  • volleyball
  • cross country
  • basketball
  • soccer
  • track
  • softball/ baseball

All students participating in sports must have a physical each year.

We have many goals for our teams and the students who participate. We try to be competitive against the other Catholic school teams we play, while trying to develop our skills, team work, and overall athleticism. As much as we like to win, our ultimate goal is to have fun and enjoy participating with our fellow SMC students as we represent the St. Mary of Carmel Eagles.

We play in the Dallas Parochial League in all sports. The Dallas Parochial League is the league in which all of the Catholic elementary/middle schools in the Diocese of Dallas participate. The league organizes all the sports listed above for grades 5 through 8. The purpose of the Dallas Parochial League is to support and enhance the character development of each student through a sense of discipline, hard work, team effort, and the individual pursuit of excellence.
