ST. JAMES/SETON ATHLETICS 

St. James/Seton Athletics Web Site

In August of 2010; St. James/Seton Athletic Association launched a web site specifically for athletics that 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students at St. James / Seton have the opportunity to participate in (www.sjsathletics.com ).  At this web site you will find tabs to the team sports that are offered (Basketball, Football, Track, and Volleyball).  These sport pages list schedules and other useful information (i.e. maps, contact information, etc...).  The information at the web site is updated regularly and gives all parents assistance in planning family calendars and schedules.

Volleyball - open to all 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th Grade girls who attend St. James/Seton School or are home-schooled. Tryouts are held in May and the season runs from August through October with an end-of-season PAL tournament.

Soccer- SJS has an outstanding recreational soccer program, which competes in the Catholic Youth Soccer League, and practices and plays on an excellent field next to St. Elizabeth Ann Church. Students play in both the fall and spring. Teams are coed under six (micro soccer), boys and girls under eight, under ten, under twelve, and under fourteen. Parents organize, coach, assist and maintain the field. A registration fee is required for each season the child plays. Children typically have weekly practices and must have a club uniform.

Parents- As a parent or guardian of our SJS Basketball Players, you are required to volunteer one hour (per player) of your time at one of our home games this year. You can run the concession/admission table, or the scorebook at a chosen time/game.  Please access one of the following links (Concessions Sign-Up or Scorebook Sign-Up), to sign-up.  A password will be required to access the page.  A password should have been provided by your child's basketball coach.  If you have questions or experience problems, please send your inquiry to 'SJSAA@live.com'.  Thank you and we hope you find this online solution helpful when signing up to volunteer!

SJS ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION

The Athletic Association is a self-funded parent organization, governed by a Board of Directors, and sponsors the athletic programs listed below. There are registration fees required for all sports. Uniforms are provided with a refundable deposit fee. Parents are expected to volunteer to take admission and sell concessions for the indoor sports. Each spring the association holds the "Spring Fling" dinner/auction fundraiser.

"A-Team" selections are made on the basis of ability and will compete in the Parochial Athletic League (PAL). Other recreational teams compete in the PAL with teams of similar ability. If a player tries out for the top team, they are expected to make SJS athletics their top priority.

All coaches are dedicated volunteers who believe in teaching fundamentals of the sport along with sportsmanship and Christian values. When possible all coaches are known prior to having tryouts. Sometimes a parent may wait to see what team his/her child is on before committing to coach.

Parents are also expected to maintain a positive Christian attitude and behavior when supporting their child’s team.

All coaches are required to complete the Archdiocesan "Safe Environment" training and background checks. Questions concerning selection, coaches and scheduling should be referred to the Athletic Director.

Due to the fact that the PRE students have these opportunities at the schools they attend, they are not eligible to participate in SJS athletics. Members of the parish who are home-schooled are eligible to participate in SJS parish athletic programs.
