"The only thing ever achieved in life without effort is failure" St. Francis of Assisi

Athletics at St. Francis

Mission of SFE Sports

Through participation in sports at St. Francis of Assisi Elementary School, students will grow physically, emotionally, socially, and spiritually. SFE sports provides the opportunity for the student-athlete to exhibit a progression of physical skills and knowledge of a sport in order to enable him/her to apply these skills and knowledge to new situations. 


Through participation in SFE sports, the student-athlete learns that God is active in all things and that love invites a personal response, beyond self-interest or self-centeredness, toward valuing others and the community of a team.
