Athletics

Overview

At Holy Spirit Preparatory School, we consider sports to be an integral part of the school’s mission. Sports allow for the integral formation of body and soul, developing character and virtue and building athletic and intellectual prowess. Students are taught the value of cooperation, sacrifice, and sportsmanship and are provided with opportunities to cultivate and exercise leadership skills. HSP has partnered with Play Like a Champion to aid in this mission for our coaches and families.

We currently offer opportunities for our students to participate in numerous varsity, junior varsity, Middle School, and Lower School sports. Athletes can play on more than one team at Holy Spirit Preparatory School; a year-round commitment to one sport is not required.

Lower School Sports

Holy Spirit Preparatory School offers Fall, Winter and Spring sports for our K-5th grade students in basketball, cheerleading, soccer, and tennis. Typically, practices occur immediately after school, with games on the weekends during the season. We’re always looking for additional volunteer coaches to share their love and passion for each sport with our youngest athletes.

Athletic Booster Club

Support our student-athletes by joining the Holy Spirit Prep Athletic Booster Club!

The Holy Spirit Prep Athletic Booster Club has one goal – to enhance the experience of our student athletes on all three campuses. The HSP Athletic Booster Club funds will enhance our budget, allowing us to provide supplemental equipment, coaching, and programs to improve the athletics experience for all our students. These funds will be obtained through HSP Athletic Booster Club memberships, athletics-specific donations, spirit gear sales, event tickets, and concession sales.

The HSP Athletic Booster Club recognizes that participation in school athletics benefits everyone. In addition to financial support, the HSPABC promotes opportunities to build and strengthen relationships among all constituencies through the enthusiastic participation of volunteers, students, coaches, parents, school faculty and staff, sponsors, community members, alumni, and grandparents.
