What does the Athletic Association do?

The St. Ignatius Catholic School Athletic Association (SICSAA) is a volunteer group which exists as a part of the St. Ignatius Catholic School and is open to members from all parishes in the System.  The mission of the Athletic Association is to promote physical fitness by recognizing its importance in the complete physical, intellectual, social, and emotional development of each student athlete. The goal of the Association is to provide physical education and supervised competition which encourages maximum participation while promoting good sportsmanship, teamwork, dignity, and accomplishment.

Interscholastic programs are offered for Grades 5-8 for girls’ volleyball, boys’ and girls’ basketball, boys’ and girls’ track, and girls’ softball.  Intramural volleyball is offered for boys in Grades 6-8. The Association also sponsors boys’ CYO basketball teams for high school students.  The SICSAA coordinates all activities required to field sports teams, from organizing the teams and scheduling the events to running the concession stands.
SICSSAA sponsors the 8th Grade mother/daughter volleyball day, father/son basketball day, and Athletic Banquet.  This banquet recognizes everyone who has participated in athletics while at St. Ignatius Catholic School.  Plaques are presented to each student athlete listing the sports they participated in while at St. Ignatius Catholic School.

The Association funds virtually all maintenance and capital improvements in the gymnasiums at St. Mary’s and Holy Cross and gives financial assistance to the physical education program.  Over the past five years, nearly $250,000 has been spent on maintenance and capital improvements.  Because of the association’s work, gym maintenance and capital improvements are “off budget” for St. Mary’s and Holy Cross parishes and the sports programs are “off budget” for St. Ignatius Catholic School.  Unlike many Catholic schools in the area, St. Ignatius Catholic School does not have a paid athletic director; all of these responsibilities are done by volunteers.

Funds are raised in a variety of ways, from concession stands and sponsoring tournaments to selling Christmas trees.  The Association also sponsors the annual Holy Cross Mens' Basketball Tournament.

Meeting Times and Dates 

Meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month August - May, 7:00 p.m. in the Holy Cross cafeteria. The December meeting is announced due to the holidays. Meetings are open to anyone interested in learning more about the Association or its activities.
