Athletic Goals and Objectives
The athletic program at Trinity Catholic is an integral part of the school's educational program. Interscholastic competition provides students with physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual experiences which benefit not only the individual, but the school and total community as well. Participants have an opportunity to acquire qualities of total fitness, self discipline, loyalty, and sincere devotion to a cause greater than themselves .
Participation in the athletic program is a privilege granted students in return for compliance with certain rules and conditions. Accordingly, there are high expectations for athletes regarding their personal conduct on and off campus. Student-athletes represent Trinity Catholic High School at all times. If their conduct at any time is judged to be beneath the high standards set by the school, participation in the sport may be jeopardized.
The ultimate goal of athletics is to see each participant become an effective citizen in a competitive, democratic society through the accomplishment of specific objectives.
