Sports Program Committee (Athletics & Boosters)
The St Joseph School Crusader Sports Programs Committee (Athletics & Boosters) is a volunteer organization that funds and administers the athletic programs at the school. The goals of the program include skill development, promoting teamwork, building self-confidence and self-discipline, fostering team and school loyalty as well as physical, spiritual and social growth. Athletes, coaches and parents are expected to promote Christian ideals and good sportsmanship both on and off the playing field and courts. Parental involvement and support are integral aspects of the program.
The Crusader Sports Program is fully-funded through donations and fundraising. It does not rely on tuition money or help from the Parish. The group holds one fundraiser each year, Forever Green Trivia Night, which helps to raise much, but not all, of the money the program needs to:
- Maintain the gymnasium
- Provide uniforms and equipment for all sports
- Hire referees and officials
- Rent fields, gyms and tracks
- Provide playground equipment
Coaching and being a committee member are the obvious volunteer opportunities. But the fundraising activities provide even more opportunities to help. In fact, each parent is expected to work at least one of the following events or to include an additional $75 “non-volunteer” fee with their annual registration.
- Parish Block Party
- Forever Green Trivia Night Fundraiser
