As a people of God ministering to the youth of the Parish through our Athletic Programs we will strive;
To develop a Christian attitude by showing respect for teammates, coaches, parents, and opponents.
To learn all aspects of the sport with substantial participation in practices and games.
To understand that winning should not be determined by the score, but by the efforts put forward by each person giving their best.
The SCL Athletic Association, which is a committee of the SCL Men's Association, runs the athletic program for the parish of St. Catherine Laboure. The members of the Athletic Association are dedicated to providing track, golf, baseball, softball, soccer, volleyball and basketball for the entire youth of the parish from Kindergarten through 8th grade.
The Men's Association also raises additional money to fund special projects for the parish by organizing activities within the group. We encourage more men to become a part of the Men's Association, so please drop us a line if you want to become more active in your parish!
