San Marcos Academy - Middle School Sports
Our middle school (6-8) athletic programs are meant to encourage participation and experimentation and serve
to establish a love for the game(s). The teaching of sound fundamental skills and techniques will be emphasized
along with the concepts of teamwork and a strong work ethic. Tryouts are for the purpose of team placement
based on skill and ability. While we will not cut players, we may have to limit the numbers of players who
participate in games based on facility or resource issues. Others will be encouraged to stay on the practice
squad for developmental purposes. Most practices will be conducted during the 8th period physical education/athletic
class, but may extend beyond the school day.
SMA Middle School sports teams compete in the Christian Athletic League of San Antonio (CALSA).
Many of our games are played at various locations in the San Antonio area. We will provide transportation
to and from these games for athletes. Home games will be played on the SMA campus. There will be some loss of
school time and students may get home late from away games. It is important that student-athletes develop good
organizational and time-management skills in order to keep up with school work.
