Athletics

MISSION STATEMENT

The Saint Peter the Apostle Catholic School Athletic program provides a safe sports environment that serves as an extension of the school’s academic and religious indoctrination. All participants will learn the fundamentals of each sport and be given the opportunity to cultivate strong, healthy and disciplined minds and bodies. Student-Athletes will develop a sense of good sportsmanship, fair play, and team spirit, as well as facilitate and enhance the moral and ethical development of all those involved.

PHILOSOPHY

Saint Peter the Apostle Catholic School is concerned with the development of the WHOLE person – the religious, moral, social and academic dimensions, as well as physical development. The Purpose of Athletics at St. Peter the Apostle School is to recognize the need for physical fitness for the wholesome growth of the child, promote a healthy interest in sports participation, and to provide enjoyable, recreational activity which develops Christian attitudes of sportsmanship and fair play. We believe that participation in athletics is an important component to a well-rounded educational experience. Through participation in the Saint Peter athletic program, students will develop ethical and moral standards, life-long skills, and positive values. These values include leadership, healthy living habits, self-discipline, integrity, teamwork, respect for rules and regulations and the ability to participate with dignity and grace.
