“Success is peace of mind which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing that you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming.”
– John Wooden
The Nativity School has a long-standing history of a strong athletics program that I am proud to be a part of. Each year we offer a variety of team sports for our Pee Wee (Grades K-4) and Middle School (Grades 5-8) division. All student-athletes are expected to dedicate themselves to the pursuit of individual athletic excellence while maintaining good standing in both academic and behavioral policies. In addition to developing students’ athletic skills, coaches will focus on instilling the district’s core values and strong character. In the North County Parochial League’s (NCPL) Philosophy Statement, Pope Paul VI is quoted to say that sports contribute greatly to the development of the whole person.
At The Nativity School we are committed to the Play Like a Champion Today™ Educational Series, and especially its Sports As Ministry (SAM) program for coaches. Coaching is an opportunity for our volunteer parents to extend the lessons of character learned in the classroom onto the field in the form of sportsmanship. We also believe in the dignity of each child having the opportunity to play, and are committed to providing a program that allows kids ultimately to “Play” and have fun while focusing on development over wins and excessive specialization.
