Girls' & Boys' Basketball
Philosophy, Purpose and Goal
The philosophy of Sacred Heart School regarding athletics is that every student in the program be given the opportunity to have a positive, growing experience in athletics. The purpose of athletics at Sacred Heart is to help our students to develop lifetime physical and mental skills. The goals of the program are to teach the athletes to do their best, to enjoy themselves, and to develop the qualities of good sportsmanship. We judge our success with the athletic program upon whether we achieve these goals, not upon whether we win every game.
