The Assumption School After-School Sports Program enables our students to develop self respect, physical fitness, and the ability to play and work with others as a team in a Christian environment.
We believe that:
The after school sports program possesses “a unique potential for reaching the hearts, minds, and souls of student athletes because athletic performance engages the entire person by unifying mind, body, and soul toward a single goal.”
Team sports go a step further by requiring unselfish play and trust in others to achieve success. These spiritual elements of competition are clearly consistent with the Gospel message and provide rich opportunities for teaching young people about life in the church.”
Any sports team is, in essence, a smaller community within the school-a microcosm church in its own right-in which young people learn what it means to work together toward a common goal in the midst of competition.”
– Rev. J. Beretta, OSFS
Therefore, the sports program leads student athletes to develop:
- A positive attitude
- Team Spirit
- Good Sportsmanship
- Physical Fitness
The school mascot is the alligator. The sports teams are known as the “Assumption Gators.”
