Athletic Director, Saint Joseph
Athletics at St. Joseph’s Catholic School provide an opportunity for our student athletes to implement their Christian morals and values through sports. Risk taking, hard work, determination, and discipline are just a few of these values. Students that participate and learn these skills will see the benefits as they grow and impact the world around them. Lessons learned from athletics will ripple into every aspect of a student’s life journey and aid them in their pursuit of Christ-like living.
Athletic Director, Parkview Christian
Athletics represent the other half of education. The classroom provides ample opportunity for intellectual growth and the playing arena provides endless opportunity for young people to grow in character, work ethic, and other essential qualities that will serve them as young adults. Middle school athletics serve to provide an introduction to a marriage between the proportional relationship between investment and rewards. Society often leads young people to seek rewards without investment. Athletics reshape that narrative. Adversity arrives in many shapes and forms in real life and we must teach young people how to respond and be resilient spiritually, physically, emotionally, and mentally so they can become more fully formed into the people Christ calls us to be. Competing is also fun. Like school picture day.

Athletic Director, Saint Teresa
There are so many benefits to participating in athletics! Here at St. Teresa’s our junior high students develop their athletic skills, sportsmanship, teamwork, friendships, and individual character while representing their school at home and away!
Co-Athletic Director, Blessed Sacrament
The Jr. High Athletics are good activities for our youth in our school because it provides a relief from busy life of academics but also teaches them lessons in life. Students need these activities to help them take on the tough challenges, set goals, and succeed. Our measure of success for our students is to compete to the best of their ability win or lose. Competition, achievement and academics are the important parts of athletics in our school.
Athletic Director, Saint John
The athletic department at St. John’s strive’s to provide a platform for students to compete, while developing life long skills like teamwork and determination. Our goal is to increase participation in athletics and help promote physical activity and wellness through sports and education.
Athletic Director, Saint Michael
Athletics at St. Michael’s Catholic School provides a great opportunity for students to be part of a team. They learn many different skills including sportsmanship, teamwork, endurance, and how to proudly play as a Catholic athlete. Students are invited to recognize and be grateful that, out of love, God created them as unique beings and that their varied gifts and talents should be used for the benefit of all and for the greater glory of God. This opportunity given to students to play for our school provides many lasting memories and instills a desire of discipline that is a life long quality to have. What sports teach an individual is more about life lessons than just the game itself!
Athletic Director, Lincoln Cougars
Playing a team sport provides the girls with opportunities to grow in their Christian character and witness. This is our number one priority throughout the season. We desire our team and organization to exemplify our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ first and foremost.
Athletic Director, Cathedral of the Risen Christ
Athletics at Cathedral is a community building opportunity for all the Junior High Students as well as a personal journey of growth in virtue. They learn how to use their God-given talents to support each other and build each other up for the glory of God. Respect, responsibility, and reverence for the human person and the gifts we have been given are exemplified in our athletics. The values of our Cathedral school are made visible in all that we say and do in our athletic programs.
Athletic Director, College View Academy
Perhaps the word that best characterizes College View Academy athletics is ‘community’. Doing things together–with each other and for others–this is an integral part of the CVA culture that pervades athletics as well. The community and close relationships that develop on CVA teams can last a lifetime. There is nothing better that putting on an Eagles jersey and walking onto the field or court with teammates that have spent countless hours perfecting a skill and representing your school with positive sportsmanship. Above all, our goal is to represent our school in a Christ-like way.
“But they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.” ~ Isaiah 40:31
Athletic Director, North American Martrys
At North American Martyrs, athletics are another way for our students to use their God-given talents and to develop skills they will use the rest of their lives! Being involved in sports at NAM is not just about the competition. It is also about being part of a community and learning skills such as teamwork, sportsmanship, and perseverance. Above all, our hope is that our student athletes learn to glorify God through their sport and their daily lives.
Co-Athletic Director, Blessed Sacrament
Athletics at Blessed Sacrament provide opportunities for our students to learn sportsmanship, teamwork, fundamentals of the sport, dedication, and most importantly how to do those things all in a Christ-like way. Competition with other Catholic schools around Lincoln gives these athletes the opportunity to put these qualities into practice. These characteristics are not only applicable to their participation in sport, but ultimately develop these student-athletes into faithful men and women of Christ.
Athletic Director, Lincoln Eagles
