San Marcos Academy Athletics

San Marcos Academy offers competitive high school and middle school athletic programs for students of all skill levels. High School athletes compete in TAPPS (the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools) while middle school athletes compete in the Christian Athletic League of San Antonio (CALSA) as well as in the San Marcos PONY League (baseball) and through intramural sports. Among the sports offered at SMA are football, volleyball, cheerleading, basketball, soccer, track, cross country, swimming, tennis, golf, baseball and softball. Athletic facilities include a varsity gymnasium, a JV/Middle School gymnasium, an indoor pool, an artificial turf multi-purpose field with all-weather track, lighted tennis courts, a fully equipped fitness center, a Frisbee golf course, a baseball field and a softball field.

San Marcos Academy teams wear green and purple and are known as the “Bears” or “Lady Bears.” Lettermen for each authorized sport are recognized at the end-of-year Athletic Banquet. Also recognized at the Banquet are the “Super Bears,” who letter in three sport and the “Super Grizzly Bears,” who letter in four sports. On occasion, a student will earn the “Five Sport Letterman Award.” Athletes who twice letter in one or more sports will receive a letter jacket. A student may earn only one letter jacket after entering the ninth grade.

In addition to the Letterman Awards, San Marcos Academy presents several other athletic awards at the Banquet and at the Academy Awards Program:

The Most Valuable Player (MVP) Award is presented to the MVP in each major high school team sport. In football, the MVP receives the Steve Fordham Award, which was established in 1968 in honor of Steve Fordham, a member of the SMA Class of 1962, who was killed in action in Vietnam.

The Battlin’ Bear Award is also presented by several coaches to recognize those athletes who demonstrate a positive attitude, outstanding dedication and an exemplary work ethic.

The Mannie Foster Award is given to the best all-around male and female athlete to recognize their athletic accomplishments as reflected in the core values of the athletic program. Those values are character, effort, teamwork, and attitude.

The Mike Kipp Christian Athlete of the Year recognizes a male and female athlete who best demonstrate distinguished character, as reflected in the life and ministry of Christ.

The Bob Jennings Athletic Director's Award is the highest award offered by the athletics department. It is given to the athlete who best displays character, effort, teamwork, and good attitude.

The SMA Athletic Hall of Fame is an honor for which alumni of the Academy may be considered; for more information on criteria and recipients, visit our Hall of Fame page.
