Athletic Boosters

The purpose of the Saint Patrick School Athletic Program at the elementary/middle school level is to complement the home, church, and school in the development of the “whole person”.  Activities of the program are for the benefit of the children, suited to their age and physical growth.

Saint Patrick School offers a sports program for ALL parish members in 5th through 8th grades as well as introductory (club) sports programs for 3rd and 4th grade children.  Registration for all sports programs is open to the School and Parish children.

 The primary goals of the Saint Patrick Athletic Program is to recognize the need for physical fitness in the wholesome growth of a child, and to provide enjoyable recreational activity that develops Christian attitudes of sportsmanship and fair play that can be sustained beyond the elementary level.

The Saint Patrick School Athletic Program is guided by its Athletic Director, the School’s Principal and the Saint Patrick Athletic Association (Boosters).  The Athletic Boosters is an association of parents with participating athletes that meets regularly as an advisory group to the school’s athletic program.  The Athletic Boosters also act as a fundraising group to raise monies to support the needs of the program as they have identified.
