Our athletic philosophy at St. Dominic Savio Catholic High School is structured intentionally with specific goals in mind for athletes at each level. We firmly believe a team can and should compete at the highest level, giving maximum effort in a way that honors Christ and the team on which they compete.
Participation in athletics is an important part of the educational process. Athletics provides the opportunity for student athletes to obtain valuable lessons in citizenship, sportsmanship, and the understanding of responsibility. In addition, our athletes ascertain collaborative skills, allowing them to succeed as a team, and bestow commitment to their team and school. Our athletes will also gain prospect into distinguishing team above self, embrace the concept of constructive criticism, assert the highest respect for others, exhibit self-control, assume responsibility for their actions, and enable them to be modest in victory and gracious in defeat.
Our athletic philosophy is designed to support and affirm the philosophy and mission statement of Saint Dominic Savio Catholic High School.
FROM THE ATHLETIC DIRECTOR
Dear Savio Family,
The Athletic Department of St. Dominic Savio Catholic High School is committed to the overall vision and mission of our school. The department strives to have its athletes reach their full potential in all areas of the athletic experience academically, socially, and through the realm of competition. Athletes are held to the athletic code and also to academic requirements. We as a coaching staff are anxiously anticipating this season and are excited to have the opportunity to work with you and your children.
Our sports teams have proven to be strong competitors, with a coaching staff that is dedicated to challenging athletes to reach for excellence. The foundation for our athletic program is the relationships our coaches create with our student athletes. Our coaching staff is comprised of a combination of full-time coaches, as well as part-time coaches who add experience and depth to our program. These professionals are responsible for modeling the type of behavior we expect from our student athletes, and for helping them to achieve their personal best.
I would like to personally invite your son or daughter to get involved and participate in some activity to enhance their experience at SDS.
I invite you to join us in cheering for the Eagles!
Orlando D. Florez
