There are plenty of opportunities for students at Seton Catholic Schools to play sports and get active – and for good reason! They love it, and we love the many benefits it gives them both in and outside the classroom.
Research shows that interscholastic athletics are a valuable part of holistic education. Playing sports can influence a student’s growth in many ways: spiritually, mentally, emotionally, physically, and socially. Participating in sports prepares our students for success in school and in their futures.
Playing sports provides numerous learning experiences for our students, as well as a positive base for Christian development. Through athletics participation, students grow their competitive spirits and our coaches emphasize sportsmanship, teamwork, and achieving goals.
Students who play sports are better equipped with stronger collaborative and interpersonal skills, which translate to their ability to excel in and outside of Seton Catholic Schools. Our competitive teams promote good sportsmanship by encouraging students to be positive when playing, respectful of others’ abilities, humble in victory, and gracious in defeat – attitudes they will use throughout their lives.
Student athletes at our schools, as well as their parents, spectators, and coaches, must adhere to the Archdiocese of Milwaukee sportsmanship pledge and other archdiocesan policies. Students and their parents are required to sign the pledge at the start of each sports season.
The sportsmanship pledge reminds participants and their supporters of their responsibility to:
- Display Christian behavior
- Show respect for student-athletes, coaches, officials, and spectators
- Refrain from profanity, racial or ethnic comments, harassment or taunting of student-athletes, coaches, officials, and spectators
- Encourage good sportsmanship by student-athletes, coaches, and spectators
- Take responsibility for their actions
Seton students have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of athletic programs which often include: basketball, volleyball, soccer, softball, track and field, and cheerleading. These programs are offered independently or through each school’s affiliated parish, and vary by each individual Seton school.
Our competitive teams participate in three Archdiocese of Milwaukee leagues:
