The interscholastic athletic program at St. Paul of the Cross School is a volunteer program. Members of the Athletic Committee, coaches, and volunteers give freely of their time to help ensure the program’s success and make it a meaningful, rewarding, and enjoyable experience for all who participate.
The Athletic Committee, whose members are approved by the Principal and the Pastor, administers the St. Paul of the Cross Athletic Program. The Athletic Committee selects team coaches and support personnel. St. Paul of the Cross participates as a full and active City-Suburban Catholic Conference charter member.
It is the philosophy of the Athletic Committee, through its members, programs, coaching staff, and volunteers, to ensure that participation in athletics is an enjoyable, rewarding, and learning experience for all who participate and to develop in our student-athletes the following characteristics:
- An interest in and an understanding of each sport’s rules.
- Advancement in a student’s athletic abilities commensurate with his/her talents and dedication to the program.
- To learn the values of sportsmanship and teamwork and to experience a sense of pride that accompanies personal growth and team achievement.
- To master the discipline, dedication, and leadership skills that can be developed through participation in competitive team athletics.
