The athletic program is designed to develop skills and good sportsmanship in both boys and girls. St. Bernard School offers after-school teams in volleyball, flag football, basketball, softball, track, and cheerleading. All students in Grades 5 thru 8 are eligible for the teams.
Practice schedules vary for each team, but in general practices are held from 3:00 – 4:30 p.m., three to four days a week. Exercise clothing such as shorts, t-shirt, sneakers must be worn for after school sports. Students are given practice and game schedules at the start of each season. Students unable to participate in PE may not play in after school sports. Students absent from school may not participate in any after-school activity for that day. In addition in order for a student to participate in the school sports programs the student must be at good academic standing before starting and during the sport season.
