The Athletic Program at Saint Paul’s offers student athletes the opportunity for holistic development. Participating in athletics affords valuable life lessons that contribute to the social and emotional growth of the student and fosters elemental qualities of respect, honesty, compassion, hard work, and fosters an appreciation for improvement. We believe athletics acts as a conduit for self-improvement and service to others, equipping the student for lifelong success.
Students at Saint Paul’s embrace the journey of learning, effort, and compassion for others. For this reason Saint Paul’s is proud to boast an over 80% participation rate among our 5th-8th grade students in athletics.
Objectives of Participation:
Work for Good
At Saint Paul’s we need to remind ourselves that it is not merely our responsibility to avoid difficult or challenging circumstances, but to do all in our power to meet challenges while leading, inspiring, and motivating ourselves and others to positive change.
Accept the Need for Development
The Saint Paul’s athlete recognizes there is always room for growth. Success cannot survive stagnation nor excellence complacency. For that reason, feedback is welcomed and designed to prosper the athlete and encourage the team.
Live and Grow Together
Athletics offer the opportunity for the development of team play and team spirit and fosters respect for others. Furthermore, interscholastic competition allows the athlete to experience the joy of winning and the growth that comes from losing and helps us mature into positive contributing members of our community.
