At the high school level, we offer opportunities for students to be part of a team. In the spring we offer track & field at the varsity level for girls & boys. In addition, our grade school sport for the winter is also track & field.
Our teams participate in the Independent Athletic Conference (IAC). We are also members of the Eastern Schools for the Deaf Athletic Association (ESDAA) and every varsity sport has the opportunity to travel to a deaf tournament at the end of the season.
Girls on the Run
St. Mary's School for the Deaf is proud to be a part of the Girls on the Run Program. This program is used to inspire young girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experienced based curriculum that creatively integrates running. Mary Pat Stanton and LeahNeuman have gone through training to be certified to teach this program. The culminating activity is an opportunity for our young girls to participate in 5k race on June 8th at UB.
