Our Middle School Athletics program offers the students of St. James Academy the opportunity to choose to play in 15 teams in 9 sports over the three-season year. Participation in our program is integral to the SJA experience. Over the course of the school year, over 90% percent of our students participate in at least one sport.
The program provides opportunities for all athletes to reach their potential and compete in an environment where their experiences are valuable, positive and rewarding.
The goals of our athletics program are to:
- Promote lifetime fitness behaviors by developing self-esteem and healthy competition;
- Encourage social skills while learning basic rules and strategies;
- Foster commitment, accountability to other members of the team, self-discipline, and sportsmanship.
- Exercise leadership among the athletes.
