St. Mary’s athletics seeks to provide recreational youth sports opportunities within the guidelines provided by the Diocese of Peoria and the Parish of St. Mary’s. Our first priority is the safety and enjoyment of the children who participate in our programs. In keeping with these principles, all coaches must be certified through the IESA and complete instruction in the Virtus Protecting God’s Children Program. In addition, the Diocese of Peoria conducts background checks on all volunteers, coaches, teachers and administrators.
