Athletic Program

3rd and 4th graders can play flag football. 5th and 6th graders play Junior Varsity sports while 7th and 8th graders play Varsity sports.  Multiple sports clubs are available for our younger students.

The philosophy of the St. Aloysius Academy Athletic Program is to make available to the athlete diverse opportunities that are consistent with the spiritual and educational goals of the Academy. Our program encourages each student-athlete to recognize his abilities to play fair and by the rules, and to respect his teammates, his coaches, his opponents, the officials and himself. St. Aloysius Academy has an excellent reputation in athletics and offers an impressive array of sports during the academic year. The Academy is a member of the Catholic Youth Organization - CYO. CYO sports enables the partnership of parents, coaches, teachers and other leaders to manage and support a sports program that allows a student to grow in their relationship with God and come to better understand themselves and the Catholic faith.

Fall Sports

Winter Sports

The Academy has as many Junior Varsity and Varsity basketball teams as needed. Everyone makes a team. There is a basketball club for younger boys.

Homecoming 

On a Saturday in October, Junior Varsity and Varsity soccer and football teams and the flag football team compete with local rivals and celebrate our StAA Wildcat Nation. This all-day long celebration gathers young and old, current students and their families, alumni, grandparents, and faculty to honor all that is St. Aloysius Academy.

Bucketball

This annual tradition is a mirror image of the NCAA Basketball Tournament. 6th-8th graders are entered into NCAA-like brackets and compete daily at morning recess on a child-size basketball hoop in a classroom setting for the glory of becoming the Bucketball Champion, a very coveted award. This fun activity sponsors a school-wide outreach opportunity. Part of the Final Four competition is a dunking exhibition by 2nd graders.

Catholic Schools Week Faculty v. 8th Grade Volleyball Game

This is a tradition and it is always up for grabs as to who will out serve - 8th graders or faculty.

Athlete-Scholar Scholarship 

 There is an Athlete-Scholar Scholarship available to new students in grades 4, 5 and 6. Details are found below.

Athlete's Prayer

Lord, help me to do my best in this game today.
Help me work towards victory, but accept an honest defeat.
Help me respect each player as well as the rules of play.
Don't let me give up no matter what odds I meet.
And, Lord, teach me to play life's game one day at a time
knowing You are my true coach and guide.
