Welcome to the St. Patrick’s athletic program! We are pleased to offer your child the opportunity to participate in athletics this year, and we encourage you to participate as well by attending games and supporting our teams. Athletics provide a valuable opportunity for students to develop kinesthetic skills and body awareness while nurturing the foundations for healthy social relationships. Consistent with the St. Patrick’s School Creed—which promotes Respect, Responsibility, Honesty, and Kindness—athletics at St. Patrick’s also teach important lessons about sportsmanship and fair play. Last, we strive to foster life-long interest in healthy physical activity.
It is our hope that this Athletics Handbook page will provide you with information on the details and demands of the athletics program at St. Patrick’s. Please note that before beginning practices or receiving a uniform, each student who tries out for an interscholastic team must submit the Athletics Review/Authorization for Participation in Interscholastic Athletics signed by his/her parent or guardian (available in the sidebar of this page). Similarly, students participating in intramural athletics must submit the Athletics Handbook Review/ Authorization for Participation in Intramurals Athletics signed by his/her parent or guardian. Parents and students must read the handbook before signing any athletics-related forms.
Practice and game schedules are available on the Athletics calendar and the Team Schedule page of this website. The fall athletics season will begin this year on Wednesday, September 4, 2013. Please do not hesitate to contact Athletic Director Seamus Brophy (202.412.5880) if you have further questions.
We look forward to a great year in sports. Go, Wolfhounds!
