Philosophy and Program
The after school sports program exists to provide opportunities for youth to participate in activities that are safe, enjoyable and promote Christian attitudes of fair play and cooperation.
The program has concern for the whole person made up of body, mind, and spirit and its focus is to respond to the interests and needs of the individual. Physical fitness, a positive mental attitude and spiritual growth are all important in developing the whole person. The individual is the focus; the sport event is merely the tool.
All students in grades 4 – 8 (5 – 8 for track) who are registered at Our Lady of Mount Carmel School, Our Lady of Mount Carmel Religious Education (English) or St. Matthias Religious Education are given the opportunity to participate. There are no cuts; all interested students will be placed on a team. However, evaluations are sometimes necessary to form teams when there are too many players for one team at a particular level. Player participation, involvement and being able to play are far more important than winning a particular sports event or having the best win/loss record.
The program relies completely on parent involvement for the success of this sports program. Coaches, parents and adult leaders must be role models and explain why behaviors are appropriate or inappropriate. Fair play, sportsmanship and competition are the essence of the Our Lady of Mount Carmel School Sports Program. Download a Coaching Application here.
