Athletics is a vital and integral part of St. Joseph’s Catholic School. The SJCS athletic program offers students opportunities for competition with other 1A schools in the South Carolina High School League (SCHSL). Participation in athletics, either as a player or as a fan, is an important part of the school’s educational experience. We invite you to come out and support SJCS athletics. Go Knights!
Sportsmanship and School Spirit
In demonstrating their love for and loyalty to St. Joseph’s Catholic School and the teams which represent the school, all St. Joseph’s students, team members, and coaches are expected to exercise a courtesy and hospitality to visiting teams and officials and to conduct themselves in a sportsmanlike manner at all times. The conduct of parents should also reflect this Christian mission of St. Joseph’s. Athletes and fans are encouraged to be mindful of the fundamentals of good sportsmanship:
- Show courtesy and respect for all faculty, staff, coaches, fellow students, opponents, officials, and property
- Know, understand, and appreciate the rules of the contest
- Exercise self-control and restraint
- Appreciate skill and performance regardless of an athlete’s affiliation
- Maintain a healthy desire to excel and win, while having the ability to win and lose gracefully
