The St. Cletus Athletic Association is a volunteer organization responsible for administering and organizing athletic programs for St. Cletus School children. These inter-scholastic programs include boys and girls basketball, girls volleyball, football, cheerleading, track and field and cross-country for grades 5-8 and intramural soccer for grades K-4.
The Athletic Association is responsible for a yearly budget which allows for financing of team uniforms, all equipment, league and tournament fees, officials and our Athletic Director’s salary. Some of these obligations are met through the Athletic fee paid by all families. While most schools require a fee to play each sport, St. Cletus prides itself on the fact that it is not a “pay to play” school. All of our children are invited and encouraged to play sports regardless of skill level without paying an additional fee for each sport. The Athletic Association supplements its budget by sponsoring fundraisers throughout the year like the popular Cardinal Pursuit trivia night and a bowling night in the spring.
Our organization relies totally on volunteers. Experience is not needed for this equal-opportunity association, just a desire to empower students to build self-confidence, leadership, teamwork and social skills. We are looking for parents from all grade levels to help in several areas including: coaching, grade reps, and general volunteers. We need and are looking for fresh ideas and encourage any and all to join us at our games or meetings. It is a great way to become involved and meet other families while watching your children participate in organized team sports.
