"The only thing ever achieved in life without effort is failure" St. Francis of Assisi
Welcome to St Francis,
My name is Chiara Adamo, and I am the PE Teacher/Athletic Director (AD). Below is a a general overview of our Athletics Program.
We participate in the Parochial Athletics League (PAL) with other Catholic Diocesan schools and private schools in the Sacramento/Davis/Roseville/Folsom area.
TK/Kinder Pee Wee Pups is our intramural basketball program that is part of our youngest students PE class. Players learn a zone defense, athletic stance, dribbling, passing, and shooting skills. We have 3 games in February for parents and older siblings to attend and root on the Pups. Signs ups for those games are in January.
1st-4th grades may participate in Little Dribblers, our peewee basketball program. Practice is during PE, games are Saturdays during January and February. I encourage all children to play because they really enjoy representing their school during Saturday games and it builds class unity. Registration is in November. More information can be found at the Little Dribbler program.
5th-8th grades may participate in:
• Girls Flag Football, Boys Flag Football and Boys Volleyball at this time are open to 6th-8th, but with the coaches’ permission 5th graders may “red shirt” or play on the practice team. In addition, 4th graders may “red shirt” or join the practice team for Cross Country and Track.
• Volleyball and Basketball have 2 leagues: a Recreational league and Competitive league. The coaches and I will do our best to put students in the best league for them to develop their skills and have fun.
