Athletics Overview

Athletic Philosophy

The primary objective of the SGS Athletic Program is to promote the mental, physical, and spiritual development of our students by encouraging their interest and participation in sports activities. The key goals of the SGS Athletic Program are to:

  • give students the experience of being part of a team; introduce the concept of team cooperation and the principles of discipline and commitment applied towards achieving a common goal; and doing one’s best in support of the team’s effort;

  • develop good sportsmanship, and bring awareness of the responsibilities of a student athlete;

  • teach the proper attitude toward winning, losing, and competing with dignity as well as discourage a “win at all costs” attitude by providing every eligible athlete an opportunity to actively participate in an athletic event for which he/she has practiced and dressed for;

  • foster school spirit;

  • promote the development of strong, healthy, and disciplined bodies and minds; and help students maintain good health through physical fitness;

  • provide an enjoyable recreational activity that can be sustained into adulthood encouraging values of self-discipline, self-confidence, fair play, and cooperation;

  • further enhance Catholic values and teachings.

Parents and faculty are encouraged to actively participate in the support of the SGS Athletic Program and related activities. This  demonstrates for our student athletes a spirit of family-school cooperation and parish enthusiasm for the program and its goals.

Saint Gilbert Catholic School offers a competitive, inter-conference, no-cut sports program.
