The Importance of Athletics

"Sports do not build character. They reveal it."
-John Wooden, Legendary UCLA Basketball Coach
Through sports children learn the importance of team work while enjoying friendly competition. At this time in their lives, children should be engaging in regular exercise and have plenty opportunities to socialize. In the athletic program at our school, the students are provided with structure and learn how to set schedules, they learn life skills such as team work and that winning isn't everything. 
Currently we have boys and girls basketball teams in the Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) League. In the 2015-2016 school year both of our 8-10 teams made it to playoffs!
