We believe the values learned in team sports will last a lifetime; therefore, SMV provides several opportunities for grades five through eight to participate in a variety of team sports.

SMV/St. Stanislaus Athletic Program is a member of GRACEAC (Grand Rapids Area Catholic Elementary Athletic Council).  Our intention in offering athletics is to expose students to the arena of competition and to help them grow in skills and dealing with the lessons that competition can provide.  These lessons include winning, losing, competitiveness, teamwork, sacrifice, fairness, and perseverance to name a few.


The girls Volleyball schedule is on the calendar.  If you need directions to a venue follow the GRACEAC link below.

Our SMV girls played Volleyball with a combined team from SMV, St. Therese, and St. Stan's. Thank you to our coaches Abby VanderKolk and Jessica Bevier and their helpers!
