Our athletic program provides opportunities for St. Michael’s students to develop critical life skills such as working together as a team towards a common goal and accepting victory graciously and defeat with dignity. At the junior varsity level (grades 5-6) the goals of the program are skills development, belonging to and participating on a school sports team, and camaraderie. The goals of the program at the varsity level (grades 7-8) are to refine skills, play competitively as a team, practice good sportsmanship, and foster school spirit.
St. Michael’s is part of the North County Parochial League (NCPL). The purpose of the NCPL sports program is to teach and exemplify the basic human and Christian values of sportsmanship, cooperation, and teamwork. Its goal is to help foster friendships, provide leadership opportunities, and help the students develop a positive attitude toward sports and athletic competition.
