Falls City Sacred Heart Catholic School offers our students and families the opportunity to participate in athletics and to share in the enjoyment of physical activities, while living out our Catholic faith in action.
We foster an environment of healthy, positive support for our student athletes. Sports can teach many important lessons for life: hard work and a dedication to learning yields results; the good of the team as a whole is more important than an individual’s interests; and our emotions serve us when they are not out of control. Student athletes will learn that anything they do should be done with intensity and a passion for striving for excellence. St. Paul wrote in a letter, “Whatever you do, work at it with your whole being.” (Col 3:23)
Parents and coaches should work together for the good of the players and the advancement of the team. Our coaches are available to discuss a student athlete’s needs or any other matter relevant to the program.
In closing, we believe that our Catholic sports programs should provide an opportunity for growth and development in athletic ability, leadership skills and personal responsibility. We will pray before games; our athletes should be young ladies and gentlemen; and our fans should cheer positively and enthusiastically.
