Interscholastic athletics is a very important part of the total educational program at Catholic High School. The purpose of athletic activities is to promote an opportunity for the student-athlete to learn and grow in ways not available in a traditional classroom setting.
One of the most important elements in a successful athletic program is morale. The effect of a player’s actions and attitude upon team morale is the greatest means of his worth to the squad. It is our belief that discipline, well-earned pride, and a high degree of commitment contribute to gaining morale.
Athletic participation guidelines have been established based on our philosophy of athletics at Catholic High School:
- Education comes first. Athletics should enhance one’s academic progress.
- The student-athlete should always conduct himself/herself in a truly Christian manner.
- An emphasis on involvement. The more people we can involve in athletics, the greater contribution we can make in the development of better citizens.
Athletics play an important part in the lives of many students. The purpose of sponsoring athletic teams is to train youth in the ideals of wholesome competition and true sportsmanship. Catholic High School sponsors football, cross country, volleyball, basketball, powerlifting, soccer, indoor track, track and field, baseball, softball, tennis, golf, swimming, gymnastics, cheerleading and dance team at the middle and high school levels. CHS is a member of the Louisiana High School Athletic Association (LHSAA) for all high school sports programs.
The Athletic Handbook is designed to address athletic policies such as:
- Student Policies
- Training Rules & Regulations
- Try – Outs
- Athletic Lettering
- Athletic Awards
- Middle School Athletics
