Mary, Queen of Heaven is pleased so sponsor a basketball program that serves student-athletes ranging from the Kindergarten age through eighth grade. The goal of the athletic department is to completely integrate sports throughout the parish and reinforce the role of athletics in the lives of our children. The Athletic Department strives to explore every opportunity to create a program that is as much about teamwork and sportsmanship as it is about making friends and having fun. As our motto, "Faith in Action", implies our athletic program will reinforce Christian values in sports with an emphasis on providing a safe and fun environment where our children can thrive and be physically active.
