PHILOSOPHY OF THE ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT
The philosophy of the athletic program at St. Frances Academy is to continue the legacy of Mother Mary Elizabeth Lange through the demonstration of academic excellence, character building, self-discipline, teamwork, and charity. Inter-Scholastic sports are tools to further advance these goals through representation of our school in athletic competition.
Every student should have the opportunity to become involved in the athletic program; if not as an athlete, then valuable assistant serving as a manager or statistician.
The coaches should strive at all levels to develop and display the attitudes of good sportsmanship, good citizenship, and loyalty to the team and school.
At St. Frances Academy, we define a winning formula as student athletes having fun through participation, learning sport specific skills as well as life shills, demonstrating sportsmanship win or lose, and conducting themselves always class and character.
In all game s that are played you are to display proper respectful for each other and your opponent. Win or lose, always do so graciously and with dignity. Be respectful of all fans, officials, players and coaches regardless of how they conduct themselves. The mission and integrity of St. Frances Academy and its athletic department comes first and foremost.
Student athletes are the unofficial ambassadors of St. Frances Academy. Your dress, language and behavior are a reflection of what is taught and practiced at St. Frances Academy. We must model ourselves to reflect the mission, history, and standards of our school. Therefore, any student athlete who does not adhere to the guidelines established by the athletic department and coaches will be subject to disciplinary action.
