The Good Shepherd Athletic program welcomes and respects all players, all skill levels, all faiths. Join us!
Our athletic programs are rooted in Christian values and players learn the key concepts of a great sports program. Teamwork, cooperation, sacrifice, determination and hard work are just a few of the character traits Good Shepherd athletes learn in our three athletic programs. Most important, they treat every player, girl or boy, beginner or expert with the same love and compassion taught by Jesus Christ, without any prejudice to ethnicity, color, religion, sex, physical appearance, income or views. We are just like you, and want to provide a great sports program where kids can have fun.
Let’s get started!

Catholic Values Come Alive in Catholic Youth Sports
As with any ministry to our youth, the three goals of a Catholic Youth Sports program are the same:
- To empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today.
- To draw young people to responsible participation in the life, mission and work of the Catholic faith community.
- To foster the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person.
In Catholic Youth Sports programs, emphasis rests not on the number of games won or lost, but on the participants’ attitude in victory or defeat. Learning how to lose is just as important as learning how to win. Learning how to win graciously is more important than winning itself.
Catholic Youth Sports programs serve the needs of all youth and reflect the diversity of the community. They enable the gifted to excel, the less gifted to participate and improve. “Star” athletes and teams do not receive exclusive attention.
Principles of fair play and sportsmanship must govern every game. Dishonesty has no place in Catholic-sponsored competition. Competitors must not borrow from professional sports questionable techniques for winning at any cost.
All participants should have the respect of others on their own team and the opposing team. Competitors should regard the opposition as friends, not enemies.
Participants should have a spirit of loyalty to Catholic ideals, to parish, to coach, and to the team. They should learn patience with and tolerance of those with less ability. They should feel grateful to all who make the program happen. Speech and actions should reflect Christian values.
At times, during the heat of competition, a participant may temporarily forget some rule of conduct. Prompt correction can turn even failures into learning experiences.
