ATHLETIC HANDBOOK

Basketball

Students may participate in basketball from the 3rd through the 8th grade. Both boys’ and girls’ teams are formed for each grade level unless there are not enough players in one grade. In such case, grades may be combined to form a team. Currently, St. Brigid teams participate in the CYO league for Dayton area teams.

Volleyball

Volleyball is available for girls and boys in grades 4 through 8. In some years grades are combined because of a shortage of enough girls to field a team in every grade.

Golf

Golf at St. Brigid is available to students in grades 5-8 and is open to girls and boys. Students are coached by a St. Brigid parishioner.  Golf occurs in the fall only.

Track

Track is available through the East Catholic Striders and is for students who are eight years old or older by September 30.  The program runs from mid-March through late May.  The team is made up of students from several schools who do not have enough interested students to form their own track program.  The competition is overseen by CYO of Dayton.

Soccer

Soccer is available in the fall for grades 3-8 and is open to girls and boys. Depending on the number of sign-ups, teams could have combined grade levels and may be co-ed.
