The purpose of the St. Pius V School Athletic Program is to provide students with the opportunity to develop their athletic skills in baseball, softball, basketball, track, and cheeleading. Student athletes learn the rules of the sport while learning important life lessons of teamwork, cooperation, and sportsmanship. The athletic program aims to promote school spirit and further enhance the school's mission by teaching the "whole child."
Students in Grades 5 - 8 who meet the school's criteria for "DOING ONE'S BEST” and "BEING KIND TO OTHERS" during the school day are eligible to try out for a team.
Students who are selected for a team must sign a contract and pay a fee before they will be allowed to participate. This contract states that a positive attitude and attendance at practices and games is required of each team member.
Parents also sign a contract that lists the parental responsibilities when a child is participating in the sports program.
