Our Interscholastic Sports Program belongs to DuPage Parochial Basketball and Volleyball League. The cross country and track teams participate in the Suburban Parochial League. Every child in fifth through eighth grade is able to participate in sports.

The Athletic Program at St. Raphael Catholic School focuses on these four goals:

  • to give each student the opportunity to participate in sports
  • to teach the fundamentals of the sport
  • to develop the skills of the participants
  • to instill a sense of fair play in the sport environment

Ninety percent of St. Raphael students participate in the Athletic Program. Students are required to remain in good standing both academically and behaviorally in order to participate. Sports physicals are mandatory each year a child participates in any sports. Sportsmanship, teamwork, and fundamentals are the emphasis.

Registration for the various sports programs take place in the Spring (for cross country, volleyball, and basketball) and Winter (for track). Fees are required for each sport.

Because St. Raphael has a no-cut sports policy, I can do any sport I want without worrying if I am ‘good enough’.
