SOSM currently offers Girls Volleyball (September – October), Co-ed Cross Country (September – November), Girls Poms (September – December), Boys and Girls Basketball (November – February), Co-ed Track and Field (Spring TBD), and possibly Boys Volleyball (Spring TBD). All dates are approximations. Athletic fees are associated with each sport. Fees are billed through the Business Office using your FACTS account following the first two weeks of practice.
Outside of Girl's Volleyball, Cheerleading, and Cross Country, all athletics are typically open to 5th – 8th graders. Girl's Volleyball, Cheerleading, and Cross Country are also available to 4th graders this year. Students can play more than one sport each season; however, practice times may coincide, thus not optimal for building a team.
SOSM encourages parents' involvement as coaches, scorekeepers, and volunteers. Please contact John Hancir if you are interested in volunteering.
