Athletics has been an important part of our tradition for over 55 years and our teams have excelled in all sports and showed a tradition of great sportsmanship. We are current members of the IESA and take part in all state-run tournaments. We hope that your son/daughter has a memorable and enjoyable athletic experience.
We currently compete in boys and girls soccer, boys and girls basketball, girls cheerleading, boys and girls track, girls volleyball and boys and girls declamations (speech), and Scholastic Bowl. Grades 5th through 8th are allowed to participate.
- The soccer season runs from early August 1 until mid-September
- The girls basketball season runs from Sept. 1 until mid-December
- The boys basketball season runs from Oct. 15 until mid-February
- Girls volleyball season runs from Dec. 1 until mid-February
- Scholastic Bowl runs from October – March
- The boys and girls track season runs from March 1 until mid-May
We are always in need of volunteers at our games. This includes coaches, ticket takers and concessions. We could not run these programs without the help for our volunteers.
The most important thing that we ask of all our players, coaches and fans is that we all show great sportsmanship at all events. We are here to teach our students the skills of each sport so that they may compete on this level but we are also teaching to show great sportsmanship in both winning and losing. We are here to give our kids an opportunity to be on a team and have fun during these elementary years.
At Holy family we have adopted Play Like a Champion’s research-based coach, parent, official and athlete curriculum that builds an engaging climate for team development and an effective system for building positive relationships. This approach assures that all athletes can grow physically, socially, emotionally and morally through their athletic experience. In addition, we also incorporate our school wide Virtue Program into our athletic program.
