The Queen of Angels’ Sports Programs are based upon the belief that participation in competitive sports contributes to achieving the goals of a Catholic elementary education. The philosophy of the Queen of Angels’ Sports Program is to provide a variety of physical activities that train young Christians to develop a healthy body, acquire the skills of the sport in which they participate and teamwork spirit. The sports program strives to help children build a sound body and also a strong Christian attitude toward life.
Our coaches and staff stress the child’s formal education as a first priority; they also emphasize that training their minds and bodies and developing their skills is a more important goal than winning any competition. Programs are designed to teach the fundamentals of good sportsmanship, and that winning/losing are natural parts of life. The sports program strives to:
- Provide opportunities for participation in various sports to all students.
- Encourage enjoyment of sport activities.
- Encourage personal discipline.
- Instill good sportsmanship.
- Instill a desire to excel.
The programs follow the policies and procedures set by the Archdiocese of Chicago, the principals of Council II 4A governing athletic associations and local athletic handbook directives. Volleyball and basketball are offered for boys/girls in the 4th – 8th grades.
