St. Martin’s Episcopal School offers students the opportunity to build an appreciation and love for lifelong fitness through athletics. Participation in athletics also provides a platform for students to search for one’s fifth gear: that moment when you think you cannot run any faster or go any further, learning to reach down deep and find more, while breaking through self-afflicted parameters and achieving more than we thought we could.
Through a commitment to excellence in academics, athletics, and life, SMES student-athletes learn that collaboration and fun, coupled with hard work and dedication, leads to personal growth and success. Our athletics program enhances the academic experience by promoting healthy competition and physical activity while stressing sportsmanship and teamwork. Our opponent is a vital aspect of all athletic completions. Without them, we would not have the ability to compete. When two teams strive to play to the best of their ability, give max effort, leave everything they have in the competition, while playing inside the rules of the game, an opportunity is created for perfection to be achieved. This creates fantastic rivalries, raises both teams’ level of play, creates an amazing atmosphere and fosters the true essence of interscholastic athletics.
St. Martin’s tries to accommodate any and all students who wish to participate. Teams are created to meet students where they are and group athletes of similar ability in order to generate appropriate internal and external competition. The goal is to develop a competitive atmosphere while maintaining a culture of encouragement and support of one another. We provide dedicated and experienced coaches and top quality resources to parents and student-athletes and the overall community in search of greater achievement. Each team and individual should be striving for their best while making everyone around them achieve their best. Full commitment from the student-athletes and from their parents is essential to the success of the program. Through these goals and objectives, our athletes grow spiritually and strengthen our students’ Christian values.
