Athletics

Welcome to Cardinal Athletics!

The administration of Pope Francis Preparatory School believes that athletics are an extension of the classroom, affording student-athletes opportunities for growth, learning, leadership and excellence. Pope Francis offers a variety of sports in the fall, winter and spring seasons. We encourage students of all abilities to get involved in our athletic programs. Please contact our Athletic Director, John Goda, if you have any questions about our sports teams or if you need additional information.

 


All athletes MUST have a valid physical on file with the school nurse in order to practice or tryout. Physicals are valid for a total of 13 months.

 

All required forms and information for athletic participation must be submitted electronically, through SportsWareOnLine.

Concussion Baseline Testing
If you have not completed baseline concussion testing in the past with Ms. Myers, you MUST complete your testing prior to the start of the fall sports season.  All freshmen, transfer students, and anyone who has not taken a baseline concussion test with Ms. Myers before, testing will be available right after school next week on 9/9, 9/10, 9/11, and the following week 9/15 and 9/17.  You must sign up with Ms. Myers in order to attend a date for baseline concussion testing.  If you have any questions regarding fall sport eligibility please email Ms. Myers.
