ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION

The Notre Dame Academy Athletic Committee supports all after school athletic programs for children enrolled in Notre Dame Academy by providing funds for uniforms, equipment, entry fees, and officials used by the various teams and a donation toward P.E. equipment as needed by the grade school. The Athletic Committee also pays the salary of the Athletic Director and coaches. The Athletic Director is responsible to find coaches for all teams with the approval of the principal. It is up to the coaches to decide who plays in which games. If there are any problems with sports, complaints are to go first to the coach involved. If the problem is not solved, the chain of command is the Athletic Director, the Principals, the Pastor, and then the School Board.

Athletics include soccer, softball, volleyball, basketball, and track for girls and soccer, baseball, basketball, volleyball and track for boys.

The purpose of our Athletic program is to provide an environment where students can develop individual skills, positive attitudes towards themselves and their team, and good sportsmanship towards fellow teammates and other teams.
