Athletics at St. Matthew

The St. Matthew Athletics Department offers current 5th through 8th graders the opportunity to compete in Volleyball, Basketball and Cross Country throughout the school year.

The Athletics department knows the value in providing all young men and women entrusted in our care with a quality Catholic education and we are happy to play a part in it. As part of a targeted effort to provide the most positive experience for its athletes, St. Matthew Parish School has established a 1-year partnership with Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA). PCA, a Stanford University-based non-profit organization, works with coaches, organizational leaders and parents to more effectively teach young athletes not only how to win, but also how to learn about teamwork, discipline, respect and goal-setting through their sports experience.

The formal letter of understanding signed by St. Matthew Parish School and PCA calls for three PCA workshops for coaches, parents and students in the school’s youth sports programs.

The athletics program at St. Matthew Parrish School seeks to provide an experience of Christian competition that will enable students to develop athletic skills and personal qualities. We believe that through athletics, students have the opportunity to learn the values of good sportsmanship, self discipline, loyalty, leadership, and friendship.
