Athletics at St. Joseph School
Beginning in Pre-Kindergarten, students participate in a Physical Education class once or twice a week. The fundamentals of a variety of sports are taught through these P.E. classes.
We offer extracurricular athletic opportunities for students in Grades 6-8. Offered sports include co-ed Cross Country, girls Volleyball, boys Basketball, girls Basketball, and co-ed Tennis. Our athletes compete with other private schools and some public schools (depending on the sport) throughout the area. They have also won conferences in volleyball, basketball, and cross country!
Our students work and train hard to be the best that they can be and encourage their teammates to do the same no matter what sport they are participating in. They strive to fully live out what St. Paul wrote in 2 Timothy: 7 “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith”. In sports, as in all things, our goal is that our participation will draw us closer to Christ.
COVID 19 Update: As can be seen all over the country, athletics do look different this year than they have in the past. In an effort to keep our students active and continually growing spiritually, emotionally, and physically, we are pleased to be able to continue to offer our students multiple opportunities this year. All students and middle school have the opportunity to participate in an hour long, sports focused class once a week within their core groups. In addition, students from 5th-8th grade have the opportunity to participate in several after-school intramural sports. Within these students will be able to continue to foster competition and sportsmanship amongst their peers.
