GO HAWKS!

Approximately 90% of students in 4th through 8th grade participate in the St. Josaphat athletics program. Through participation in team sports, students develop the virtues of integrity, honesty, loyalty, fair play, teamwork, and respect.

The athletic program for students in 4th through 6th grades is developmental and focuses on teaching fundamental skills for each sport. In 7th and 8th grades, the athletics program is competitive, challenging students to refine their physical skills and prepare for competition outside of grade school.
