Athletics Mission & Philosophy

Athletic Mission Statement

The mission of the St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic School Athletic Department is to provide an athletic program with an emphasis on Christian principles and good sportsmanship, and to govern healthy competition between teams and among student-athletes in grades 5th-8th. The Athletic Department is an integral part of the total education system provided by the school where young men and women are taught lifetime skills of doing one's best, teamwork and leadership. The Athletic Department strives to develop student-athletes' bodies, minds and spiritual beings into strong, contributing members of society and the Parish community.

Athletic Philosophy

Student-athletes, coaches, parents and spectators are to keep in mind at all times that the contests in which the student-athletes compete are games. They should be fun for everyone involved. Winning is a worthwhile goal and purpose when viewed in the proper perspective. When doing one's best, enjoying intense competition, and receiving the character building benefits of competition, winning can be a most honorable goal. Activity programs provide valuable lessons for practical situations -- teamwork, sportsmanship, winning and losing, and hard work. Through participation in activity programs, students learn self-discipline, build self-confidence, and develop skills to handle competitive situations.
