St. Gerald Athletics

Welcome to St. Gerald Athletics!

Welcome and thank you parents, coaches and commissioners for dedicating and giving your time, talents and leadership to Saint Gerald Athletics. I strongly believe parish athletic programs are an extension of our Catholic Faith and a great way for us to serve others. I would also like to say a special thank you to all those that serve the children of this parish through Saint Gerald Athletics. Without your participation, leadership, service and sacrifice the children of this parish would not have an athletics program to participate in. Thank you and please consider the following statement from NCYOS.

What are the Vision and Guiding Principles of a Catholic Faith-Based Sports Program?

PLACING FAITH & FAMILY FIRST ("F3"): the higher values of faith and family are recognized and are emphasized over winning. Strong Catholic Families, Strong Catholic Youth are an important component.
CONTRIBUTING TO THE MISSION OF CHRIST IN THE WORLD:young athletes, their parents and families, and all those associated with athletics under Catholic auspices, understand athletics to be a youth ministry, guided by the goals of the Bishop's document - "Renewing the Vision", and at the service of discipleship.
ACTIVELY ENGAGING IN THE CATHOLIC FAITH COMMUNITY: Athletic programs and the Church are working together with one another for time, resources, energy, leadership, etc., and are partners pursuing the mission of Christ in the world.
DEVELOPING CHARACTER, SPORTS SKILLS AND GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP: Character development, skill development and sportsmanship: winning is subordinate to the development of virtue.
PROMOTING HOLISTIC HEALTH AND WELL-BEING OF YOUNG PEOPLE: "The glory of God is a (hu)man fully alive." (St. Irenaeus): the health, well-being, and well-rounded growth and development of young people are paramount.
