Extra Curricular Activities
To enhance the regular school curriculum, the school offers many student activities. These are excellent opportunities for students to develop particular gifts and skills and learn how to work as a group or team.
Students involved in extra-curricular activities represent our school and its philosophies. Extra-curricular activities are offered as a service to our students and the opportunity, which is open to all students, may be taken away for inappropriate behavior on the part of the student or their parent. Participation in such activities is a privilege and not a right. The administration reserves the right to suspend or remove a student from any or all extra-curricular activities.
St. Lawrence is a member of the Hillsborough Catholic Youth Sports League (HCYSL), participating in both boys and girls inter-school competitive sports. These sports may include basketball, soccer, flag-football, track, baseball, tennis, and volleyball. Participation in the sports program assists the formation of a well rounded personality through dedication, discipline, and sacrifice. The goal of the program is to ensure that each student has fun while acting in a sportsmanlike manner, working for the good of the whole team, and respecting the personalities of others. Sportsmanship does not mean winning at all costs – it does mean striving to win, but also accepting defeat graciously, giving ones best at all times, and not disgracing the opponent.
Any student appointed to a school sponsored athletic activity must have a completed FHSAA sports physical on file with the school before participation can begin.
Parents and Students should consult Athletic Eligibility Requirements in the Parent Student Handbook for specifice guidelines on elegibility.
All transportation to inter-scholastic competition is provided by the parents. Parents are responsible for ensuring that their child arrives to and from games. St. Lawrence Catholic School does not provide nor monitor transportation to and from these events.
The Administration and/or Head Coach (in consultation with the principal and assistant principal) reserve the right to suspend or remove any student from the team. Please keep in mind that representing St. Lawrence Catholic School is a privilege, not a right.
8th graders do not make the team simply because of seniority. The selection is based on whatever is best for the team as a whole.
Making the team does not guarantee any specific amount of playing time.
