There are two levels of play for our student athletes competing in a PAROCHIAL ATHLETIC LEAGUE SPORT:
- A Level (Varsity): 7th and 8th graders. Playing time is not guaranteed to student athletes and instead is earned through practice, effort and play in games. This is a competitive level. Teams qualify for playoffs by finishing with a record of .500 or better. In the sports season, these games/matches are played at 3:30/4:30pm depending on opponent and there will be days that student athletes are dismissed from class early to get to a game.
- B Level (Junior Varsity): 5th and 6th graders. This is a developmental level in which all student athletes will get an opportunity to play. This is still a competitive level and playing time will differ between student athletes. There are no playoffs at the B Team Level. In the sports season, these games/matches are played at 3:30/4:40pm depending on opponent and there will be days that student athletes are dismissed from class early to get to a game. There are NO PLAYOFFS at the B Level!

An Athlete’s Prayer
God, let me play well but fairly.
Let competition make me strong but never hostile
Forbid me to rejoice in the adversity of others
See me not when I am cheered, but when I bend to help my opponent up.
If I know victory, allow me to be happy:
If I am denied, keep me from envy.
Remind me that sports are just games.
Help me to learn something that matters once the game is over.
And if through athletics, I set an example,
Let it be a good one.
