The Athletic Program at San Jose Catholic School is structured for our athletes at every level. School spirit is strong for the Trojans seasonal sports.

The San Jose Catholic School Trojans compete in the Catholic Grade School Conference in the Diocese of St. Augustine. The Trojans play in Division 2 which is the upper level of the conference. The Trojans have a winning tradition. Since 2000 the Girls and Boys Basketball teams have captured four league titles each, while the Girls Volleyball team has earned eight titles, winning six straight titles from 2003-2009. The Boys Softball team has won six championships while the Lady Trojans Softball Program won two championships including an undefeated season last year. The co-ed Varsity Soccer team has captured two league titles.

Many of our student athletes go on to play junior varsity and varsity sports at Bishop Kenny, Bishop Snyder and many other surrounding area high schools.

Representing San Jose Catholic School in sport competitions is a privilege and an honor and as such requires a code of conduct. Each athlete is required to abide by the following rules:

Academics:

Eligibility shall apply to all athletic activities of the Catholic Grade School Conference. A student is academically ineligible if he/she receives one grade of 69 or below in any core subject and/or has below average conduct or effort in any subject. Students’ grades are evaluated at mid-quarter and again at the end of the quarter.

Conduct:

Athletes will conduct themselves in an honorable and sportsmanlike way, both on and off the field. Athletes are examples to the other members of the student body and must not bring discredit to the school, team, or themselves. Athletes will perform in a manner worthy of the respect of both teammates and opponents. Athletes will take responsibility for the proper use of school property and equipment.

Sportsmanship:

Athletes will abide by the official rules and officials’ decisions. They will not use profanity or violence and will always treat their coaches, team members, and opponents with respect and fairness. Athletes will be humble in victory as well as defeat.

Loyalty:

Athletes will recognize their loyalty to San Jose Catholic School and will cooperate with the coach, team members, officials, and school administration.


Each athlete must have a sports physical and parental permission/release of liability form on file with the school office prior to participation in any sport. This form is a Diocese of St. Augustine form that is available on the web-site or in the school office. This form has to be signed in front of a notary public and the physical must be dated on or after June 1st prior to the start of the upcoming school year.

Download the Sports Physical and Parental Permission/Release of Liability Form here.

Fees

Each athlete is required to pay a sports fee of $60.00 per sport with two volunteer hours. Parents and older siblings have many opportunities to volunteer throughout the sports season in preparing fields or working gate fee’s and concession stands or running study halls before team practices. This fee is due immediately upon announcement of the team roster and must be paid before uniforms are issued. This fee assists in providing equipment and paying official’s and team fees. In addition, some sports require the purchase of personal uniform accessories. Athletes will not be permitted to play until the sports fee has been paid.
