There are various athletic opportunities for our students to participate in with their classmates. The SJRCS sports program, which is run by a parent committee of volunteers, includes: basketball, soccer, 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 6th grade, depending on participation. Our teams participate in the City of Frederick recreation league for both the fall and spring seasons. 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.
Our Cheerleading Program consists of 6th through 8th grade girls. They cheer for the 8th grade boy’s basketball team as well as an annual festival at FedEx Field during a Redskins game. They also participate in a middle school competition in Baltimore each year.
We are always in need of coaches, team parents, etc. so parents are encouraged to get involved. Additional information regarding registration dates, fees etc. will be sent home with the student during the school year. TJ Frazier - Athletic Director, firstname.lastname@example.org.
