Jesuit Athletic Philosophy
Interscholastic athletics is a comprehensive program aimed at involvement of the entire Jesuit community. Offering competitive athletics from the freshman year through the highest levels of competition at the varsity level, student-athletes develop the qualities described in our Profile of the Graduate. Athletics reinforce the qualities of sportsmanship, leadership, dedication, and good judgment. These influences help the student-athlete effectively perform, lead, and deal with stress, competition, and interpersonal relationships both on an individual basis and as part of the team. Jesuit athletics promotes the physical, mental, moral, social, spiritual, and emotional well-being of the student-athlete as he learns to be responsible for his own actions and his place on the team.
Athletics provides an avenue for the student to learn from the highs and lows, successes and failures, accomplishments and setbacks, which will help him move toward maturity. Through athletics, the student can find enjoyment, personal satisfaction, accomplishment, friendship, and gratification that develop a positive self-appreciation from his teammates and coaches. Athletics provides another area where the student can develop fully the gifts and talents God has given him.
