SJGS Eagles Athletics
Assistant Athletic Director
All boys and girls in 5th – 8th grade are eligible to participate in interscholastic athletics for Saint Joseph Grade School. Saint Joseph teams compete in the Inter-City Catholic League (ICCL) with other Michiana Catholic schools.
Parents are asked to take a few minutes to complete the Athletics Registration Form, sent via email during the summer. Your registration helps us plan for the coming year’s scheduling, coaching, and uniform needs. In addition, because our fall sports begin before the first day of school, it is very important that you complete the form if your son or daughter plans on participating in a fall sport (football, soccer, softball). For questions, please contact Mike Favorite at firstname.lastname@example.org.
About Saint Joseph Grade School Athletics
Saint Joseph Grade School is a member of the Inter-City Catholic League (ICCL) and competes regularly with other schools in the Michiana area.
The mission of the SJGS Athletics Program is to foster a Christian spirit of sportsmanship, fitness, a healthy self-image and the ability to work with others as a team. We accomplish this mission through the collective effort and shared responsibility by all—parents, students, coaches, school staff and parish community.
SJGS encourages both individual and team excellence and presents students of all skill and experience levels with opportunities to develop a Christian spirit of sportsmanship as well as a lifelong interest in fitness and sport.
SJGS teams are expected to be competitive, but the ultimate measure of their success is not found in their victories. Rather, our teams are considered successful when they promote teamwork, skill development, fun, self-discipline, self-control, hard work, commitment, perseverance, respect for self and others, competitive spirit, and character. When a Saint Joseph Grade School team follows the rules, plays hard, and plays as a team, it is a “winner” regardless of the final score.
