St. Mary of the Assumption Hawks: Welcome
Welcome to the website for the St. Mary of the Assumption Hawks girls volleyball program. St. Mary's is located in Hockessin, DE and enters teams in the Catholic Youth Ministries program of the Catholic Diocese of Wilmington. The CYM program has four levels of play for 7th-8th graders, and five levels for 4th-6th graders. St. Mary's usually fields 5-7 teams. It's a great place for beginners as well as very experienced and skilled players.
The season underway. We have 5 full teams, 3 JV and 2 Varsity. Games start September 9 and continue thru October.
We think there are 17 St. Mary's alumni playing on varsity high school teams this year, with many more on JV and Freshman teams. We also have at least one player playing in college. See details in My Site News.
CYM Volleyball season starts with tryouts and practices in mid-August. Teams play a 10-match season on weekends in September and October. Varsity teams (7-8 grade) finish their season with playoffs during the first week of November. There is often an invitational tournament for JV teams (4-6 grade) that week as well. All teams practice twice a week at HB duPont Middle School. Games are played at parish gyms throughout the diocese. Registration for St. Mary's volleyball happens in June.
