St. Agnes-St. Dominic Athletics
To provide sports opportunities for our K-12 student body, we coordinate three different sports programs within the Athletic Department for K-4th grade, 5th-8th grade, and 9th-12th. Each program has different expectations, but the primary goal of our department is to ensure that our student-athletes develop lasting life skills to use after their athletic career ends.
The most notable accomplishment of our K-8 programs is that 90% of the student-body participates in athletics. Our K-4th Grade program provides many of our students with their first experience in sports, so the emphasis of this program is to have fun while learning basic skills, rules of the game, and teamwork. The 5th-8th Grade program continues to give all interested students an opportunity to represent their school. We have a “no cut” approach, so that every student can have a team experience appropriate for his or her skill level. For these athletes, we emphasize more skill development and team strategy. Many of our St. Dominic and St. Agnes Lower School graduates have gone on to play at the high school level.
As a college prep school we also strive to provide college prep programs for our Upper School athletes. St. Agnes has had numerous athletes go on to play at the college level. Our athletes compete in the entire range of TSSAA sanctioned sports, as well as in lacrosse, swimming, pom, and trap, and we are extremely proud of their success. The prestigious Best of the Preps selected our Upper School program as the best overall female athletic program in the area for four consecutive years.
I encourage all families to participate in our Booster Club. As you know, to run an athletic program of this size, we need additional funds to give our athletes their best chance to compete. Please check our website for details regarding benefits of membership.
It is an honor and privilege to serve as Athletic Director at SAA-SDS. Please feel free to contact me by e-mail or phone if you have any questions regarding our program.
Go Stars & Suns!
