St. Thomas provides physical education for all students as part of the curriculum. The parish provides a sports program for students in fourth- through eighth-grade. The athletic competitions are sanctioned by the Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) and are open to all parish children and students of the school.
This program will be consistent with the goals of the school and provide for the development of physical skills, teamwork and leadership in a caring atmosphere. We also use coaches and adult role models to teach kids what an STA Tiger acts like on and off the court.
A student participating in a sport must abide by CYO and STA school regulations.
Students may participate in CYO sports not offered at St. Thomas at a neighboring parish with a signed waiver from the principal.
CYO Ministry: Sports fans use your interests and talents to foster teamwork, sportsmanship and raise kids’ self-confidence! We need coaches and adult role models to teach kids what an STA Tiger acts like on and off the court; provide equipment and uniforms; and raise money for the program through poinsettia sales, ticket sales, and concessions. A coach puts in about 5 hours per week for a 6- week session. Athletic committee commitment averages 2-3 hours per month.
