John Bapst Ranked #1 in Northern
The role of athletics at John Bapst is significant. At John Bapst there are currently 23 varsity sports, 12 sub-varsity sports, and 1 club team. During any given school year there will be over 300 students participating on at least one interscholastic team. For this to be successful there needs to be organization and communication between participants, coaches, parents, and school.
The philosophy of our athletic program is to provide a safe, healthy learning environment and to provide the appropriate level of athletic competition in as many different sports as possible for both boys and girls. Our program actively embraces this philosophy and provides for individual differences. In addition, the opportunity exists for each student-athlete to strive for and, hopefully, attain his or her set goals.
All students who are academically eligible, demonstrate good school citizenship, and have met school requirements (sports fee and paperwork) may tryout for any sport they choose. However, many criteria ultimately go into coaches’ decisions about team membership and participation.
The ultimate goal of the athletic department is to teach the value of hard work, discipline, and a sense of commitment. Good character, respecting others, and respecting the efforts of others are also goals of the John Bapst Athletic Department.
We look forward to your support and hope that you will be pleased with the variety of athletic opportunities offered here at John Bapst.
