SJRCS offers a variety of athletic opportunities that our students can participate in. The SJRCS sports program, which is run by a parent committee of volunteers, includes: basketball, soccer, golf, lacrosse, and cheerleading.
Our 1st and 2nd graders participate in an in-house instructional league designed to teach the basic skills of the game, sportsmanship and teamwork. Teams are coed and the season runs January - February. The league also includes teams from Visitation Academy and Trinity School, as well as St. John, to play games in an informal basis.
Our 3rd through 8th graders participate in the Monocacy League which plays against teams from all over the county to include Mt. Airy, Urbana, Walkersville and the like. Basketball begins in early November and runs through late February.
St. John fields teams for Kindergarten through 8th grade, depending on participation. Our Kindergarten through 5th grade teams participate in the City of Frederick recreation league for both the fall and spring seasons. Our middle school team consisting of grades 6th, 7th, and 8th is new this year. All teams are coed. As the program grows, we continue to explore other league options to enhance the program.
Lacrosse is offered to both boys and girls in grades 1 through 8. We participate in the Western Maryland Youth Lacrosse Conference playing against teams from all over the county. The lacrosse season extends from early March through late May and we also participate in an 8 week fall ball and an indoor winter league at the SportsPlex in Frederick.
