ATHLETICS

The athletic/sports program at St. Richard seeks to provide an environment where students can learn and develop athletic skill. We strive to develop a student athlete who plays to the best of their ability while exemplifying the qualities of good sportsmanship and fair play.

 

Playing a sport is a great way for students to further reinforce respect, responsibility, discipline and teamwork outside of the classroom.

 

We offer the following sport opportunities:

 

Fall Season

Basketball, girls

Outdoor Soccer, coed JV & varsity

 

Winter Season

Basketball, boys

Bitty Basketball, coed

Indoor Soccer, coed

An Athlete’s Prayer

 

I thank you O God

for giving me a body

which is fit and strong,

and for making me able to use it well.

In my training,

help me never to shrink the discipline which I know that I need

and that I ought to accept.

In my leisure and in my pleasure,

help me never to allow myself any indulgence

which would make me less fit than I ought to be.

When I compete with others,

help me, win or lose, to play fair.

When I win,

keep me from boasting;

When I lose,

keep me from making excuses.

Keep me from being conceited when I succeed,

and from being sulky when I fail.

And help me always with good will

congratulate a better man who beat me.

Help me so to live

that I will always have a healthy body, and a health mind.

This I ask for Your love's sake.

Amen.
