???????????????????????????????

Mercymount’s athletic program is provided entirely by volunteers both in coaching students and in managing the school gym on game days (Saturdays and Tournament times). These volunteers comprise almost one-half of the school’s parents, making them a gift and a blessing to the children and to the mission of Mercymount.

Mercymount Country Day School is a member of the Catholic Athletic League (CAL) which provides students in grades 4 – 8 with the opportunities to learn the skills in a variety of sports and to compete in those activities both through the Diocese of Providence. Coaches are certified through the CAL program. Volunteer coaches for children in grades K – 3 at Mercymount do not need to be certified.

All coaches must have a National Criminal Background Check and attend a Safe Schools Presentation before acceptance as a coach for Mercymount.
