Play Like A Champion, developed at the University of Notre Dame, is our partner for training coaches and parents in an effort to change the culture of youth sports through education.
Now that we are "returning to normal", the following guidelines for the Diocesan Schools participating in the Parochial Athletic League during our spring sports seasons are designated here:
Outdoor Athletic Events -
1) Coaches - paid or volunteer - must be vaccinated
2) Masks are not required.
Indoor Athletic Events -
1) Coaches - paid or volunteer - must be vaccinated .
2) Masks are no longer required.
We understand that the parameters of the virus can change, and these rules may be modified by the Department of Catholic Schools at any time as updated guidance comes from CDPH.
It is always an exciting time of year as we begin preparations for the new school year and the Fall sports season! As our student athletes begin to assemble on campus and the practice fields, let us not forget our mission of educating and coaching them in a faith-filled environment of sportsmanship and respect. We pray together for a year of positive experiences for our athletes, coaches and parents and look forward to rekindling the relationships of past years.
Best of luck to everyone!
The Parochial Athletic League provides faith-based K-12 schools
within the boundaries of the Diocese of Orange an opportunity for
friendly interscholastic competition in an environment of Christian
sportsmanship, honesty, teamwork, spirit, mutual respect and
responsibility. The opportunity to represent the school in interscholastic play builds camaraderie among classmates and leads to a lifelong commitment to one's faith community.
