The athletic programs at St. Bernadette School are open to all students in the designated grades for a particular sport.  Participation of the student athlete is contingent upon payment for the program and submission of completed forms (physician release and emergency contact information) PRIOR to the first practice.  

Registration will open approximately 4-6 weeks prior to the initiation of the sport’s practice season.  Students may register at any time after this date.  Information regarding specific sport/team registration will be sent to all pertinent school families via email or school mail.  Only one medical release form and one emergency information form is necessary per student athlete, regardless of the number of sports/teams they register for.  Emergency contact forms are good for one school year.  Physician release forms are good for one calendar year, from the date of physician signature.  Athletes may begin practice when both completed forms are returned to the Association and payment has been received.  The release forms may be downloaded or obtained from the school office.  Registration fees vary per sport.  A discount is given for registering additional children of the same family in the same sport.

SBAA is a financially sufficient, volunteer athletic association and requires your support with fundraising and other activities planned during the year.  Fundraising activities include the annual Spaghetti Dinner, the Lourdes Center concession stand and a preseason basketball tournament.  These activities are necessary to provide quality programs and equipment for our student athletes, in addition to providing financial support for the Lourdes Center.  All families of student athletes (regardless of sport/team) are expected to volunteer for 2 time slots per registered child at the Lourdes Center concession stand during the basketball season.    

Parents/guardians of all school students are considered members of the Association and are an integral part of our programs.  The success of the programs depends on you.  If you have experience coaching and would like to become part of a team, please contact Julio Estremera (sbaasabers@hotmail.com).  

The Athletic Association is committed to providing quality athletic programs for our students this year.  Our goals are to increase parental involvement, broaden our athlete base, and reach out to our younger student athletes.  We welcome any comments, questions or concerns you may have throughout the year.
