What is Royal Blue Club?

Since 1989 the Royal Blue Club has been devoted to fostering excellence in St. Mary’s High School Athletics through financial support. The Royal Blue Club is a registered 501(c)(3) tax-deductible nonprofit organization, led by a volunteer board who contribute financially and through service.

The Royal Blue Club helps subsidize the cost of running the athletic program at St. Mary’s High School with valuable support and recognition to all St. Mary’s athletic teams including the purchase of team uniforms and equipment. Royal Blue funds financial aid packages and provides opportunities for qualified student/athletes to attend and play for St. Mary’s High School.

All alumni, parents and friends of St. Mary’s High School athletics are invited to join the club and may choose to participate at their own level of interest.
