The goals of the St. Joseph’s sports program are to teach students healthy habits, sportsmanship, skills, and self discipline. The sports program is organized by the athletic directors, under the supervision of the principal. There is a fee per student per sport to defray the cost of uniforms, equipment, etc. The following sports, grades 7-8, are offered through this program: girls volleyball, basketball and track; boys basketball and track. More information about the Lincoln Catholic League can be found on the league website at www.cysi.org.
St. Joseph School offers 7th and 8th graders the opportunity to participate in Cross Country, Volleyball, Basketball, Golf and Track. Information concerning the start dates and schedules of these sports can be found at Catholic Youth Sports Informer cysi.org and will also be made available to your child.
The Catholic League is a non-competitive league. While score is kept and all participants give maximum effort toward winning, all members of a team get to play. Playing time will not always be equal, but an effort is made to make sure that all members contribute. The Catholic League is always looking for coaches. These are volunteer positions, but practices are only 1-2 times a week and go from right after school until 5:00 or before. If you are interested in donating some of your time to coach our kids, please let us know.
We are blessed with a great facility and thus are often asked to host games. Traditionally here at St. Joseph’s the parents have been asked to keep score, book and take money at the gate. Recently the scope of parental responsibility has been narrowed to taking money at the door. This job still allows you to watch your child participate. We would appreciate your willingness to help in this manner.
At the right side of this page you can find the forms needed to participate in St. Joseph School sports. Please fill out and return the Sports Waiver, COVID-19 Waiver, and any applicable Participation Forms as soon as possible.
Your Athletic Directors
Co-Athletic Director, Saint Joseph
Athletics at St. Joseph’s Catholic School provide an opportunity for our student athletes to implement their Christian morals and values through sports. Risk taking, hard work, determination, and discipline are just a few of these values. Students that participate and learn these skills will see the benefits as they grow and impact the world around them. Lessons learned from athletics will ripple into every aspect of a student’s life journey and aid them in their pursuit of Christ-like living.
