ATHLETIC PROGRAM OVERVIEW

ATHLETIC PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Athletic Director: Mr. Harvey Schoener

The athletic program includes sports for boys and girls in 7th and 8th grade: football (6th grade is also included), and basketball for the boys; volleyball, and basketball for the girls. Grades 5-8 participate in the track meets, softball tournaments, and soccer.

Grades will be checked on Monday mornings. A student who is failing any subject will be ineligible to play in a game that week. In the case of two games in one week, the student will miss the first game and grades will be rechecked to see if the student is eligible to play in the second game. Students must also maintain a satisfactory grade in conduct. A conduct grade below an S in any subject will make a student ineligible to participate until the grade improves. Discipline slips, depending on the infraction, could make a student ineligible to participate for that week.

Yearly physicals are required before students can participate in any of the sports activities.

Mission Statement

The primary goal of the sports program in the Diocese of Victoria Athletic League is to represent Christ by exhibiting good sportsmanship through participation in and learning the basic fundamentals of our sports program, always keeping in mind that winning is not everything. Good sportsmanship is viewed by the Diocese of Victoria Athletic League as a commitment to Christian values of fair play, ethical/moral behavior, and integrity. In perception and practice, sportsmanship is defined as those Christian qualities that are characterized by generosity and genuine concern for others. The ideals of sportsmanship apply equally to all activity disciplines. Individuals, regardless of their role in activities, are expected to be aware of their influence on the behavior of others and model good sportsmanship.
