FAQs

Below are some frequently asked questions about the SFS athletic program. If after reading through the questions you still have more, please contact Athletic Director Jim Ronayne.
Yes, all SFS students can participate in the sport of their choosing, assuming they meet the age requirement. Most of our teams begin at the 5th grade level.
As of the the 2019-2020 season, 3rd and 4th grade boys, and 4th grade girls could play basketball. In Flag Football, SFS had three teams, including K5-2nd grade, 3rd-4th grade, and 5th-6th grade. These team configurations are subject to change each year.
SFS employs a no-cut program. Every student who wants to play will be on a team. Tryouts will be held only for placement on a team when multiple teams/split grades are required.
Yes - depending on the sport fees range from $75-$200 per season. For those families not able to cover the cost, financial assistance is available. 
Definitely! All parents are welcome to submit their names to the Athletic Board's Head of Coaches via the Athletics inbox (athletics@stfrancislz.org). The Athletic Board reviews and approves all coaches before each season. If it's your first season, you will most likely begin as an assistant and learn from the head coach.
Typically, athletic registration opens in May (for fall sports), September (for winter sports), and February (for spring sports). Please visit the Athletics registration page to learn more.

Registration deadlines are typically linked to team roster submissions for the Northwest Catholic Conference, so you are encouraged to register prior to the published deadline. If you miss a deadline, please submit a request to athletics@stfrancislz.org and the assigned coach for that team will contact you.

 

Once rosters are finalized and coaches have been selected, your assigned coach will reach out to the parents with all pertinent details. If at any time you have questions, you can also submit them via athletics@stfrancislz.org.

Of course! All Eagles fans are welcome at home and away events. Please consult the SFS athletics page on the Northwest Catholic Conference website.
