St. Andrew Athletic Association serves at the request of the pastor to administer and coordinate the athletic programs affiliated with St. Andrew Parish. Our role as an athletic board is to manage the athletic programs in accordance with the by-laws and policies established by the members for the benefit of the children of St. Andrew Parish. We’ve volunteered for this position because we believe athletics play an important role in a child’s development and we understand that the experience teaches children life lessons beyond those otherwise found in a school curriculum or religious studies.
Our mission is to provide the framework and organization necessary for ensuring that each child has a positive experience participating in St. Andrew sports. That means enacting fair policies and procedures, selecting qualified coaches, ensuring appropriate instruction, providing adequate facilities, supplying safe equipment, and spending budgeted dollars wisely.
It means doing everything we can to best manage the sports program for the children of St. Andrew Parish in accordance with the Christian values inherent in our Catholic faith.
