Athletic Code of Conduct
St. Brendan School has a variety of programs available for students to engage in athletic activities. Our primary emphasis is to teach the children to display good Christian values and sportsmanship during play, to teach them how to play the game, to prepare them for high school athletics, and for them to have fun while representing their school.
St. Brendan participates in the Volusia Catholic Sports League. Depending on participation levels within the league and school, teams include:
- Coed Fourth Grade
- Girls Junior Varsity (5th and 6th Grades)
- Boys Junior Varsity (5th and 6th Grades)
- Girls Varsity (7th and 8th Grades
- Boys Varsity (7th and 8th Grades) 2008/2009 Volusia Catholic League Champions!
- Volleyball: Girls Junior Varsity (5th and 6th Grades), Girls Varsity (7th and 8th Grades)
- Tennis: Girls and Boys (5th thru 8th Grades)
- Golf: Girls and Boys (6th, 7th and 8th Grades)
- Cheerleading: Brendanettes
Saint Brendan School offers several activities in which the students may participate if they meet the academic and physical requirements. Some sports activities are cheerleading, basketball, golf, tennis, volleyball. We do not intend to place total emphasis on these activities, and we ask you to follow the same practice.
Parental permission is required for students who participate in these programs. A student who participates in any school or sport activity must maintain passing grades in all subject areas and also in conduct. Students who do not maintain a 2.0 may not participate in the activity until progress reports are sent. Students who participate in sports activities must maintain a yearly physical examination by a physician. Students who are absent from school may not participate or be present at any activity after school or be present on school property. Students who miss excessive amounts of practice without permission may not be able to participate in games.
Role of Parents
The parents of students representing Saint Brendan School as members of our athletic teams (sports teams and cheerleaders) are ultimately responsible for their athlete's behavior both on and off the court and playing field.
- Parents should conduct themselves in a manner consistent with our shared Christian values as positive role models for their children by showing respect for the coach, players, game officials and opposing coaches, players and spectators in a manner that dignifies the individual, the game, the sport, and our school.
- Parents should make sure that their athlete is in good health and maintains the required academic and conduct grades.
- Parents should attend parent team meetings.
