Athletics

Similarly, if one takes part in an athletic contest, he cannot receive the winner’s crown unless he has kept the rules. – II Timothy 2:5

Athletics at Seton School

At Seton the spiritual growth of the student is of primary importance, followed by intellectual development. Physical education is also important in the student’s growth and should complement and contribute to spiritual and academic well-being. Students are therefore encouraged to participate in athletics.

The sports program, varying with the sport, includes junior high, junior varsity, and varsity teams for both boys and girls. Players will be selected by the coaching staff to be on the team(s) for which they are best suited. Junior high and junior varsity teams will concentrate on learning fundamental skills and physical conditioning to play the sport well. Varsity players will be selected based on their demonstrated skill and knowledge of the sport, and are expected to be sound in the fundamentals so that strategy and conditioning may be emphasized.

 

Some Interesting Facts:

  • 75% of the school student body participates in Seton athletics.  
  • Seton School is the ONLY Catholic school in Northern Virginia that fields teams for up to three levels (Varsity, Junior Varsity, & Jr. High) per sport for most of its 12 sports teams.
  • All 24 team’s coaches are unpaid volunteers.  
  • All athletic fields and swimming facilities are rented.
  • The Seton Conquistadors was the first high school chapter of the Catholic Athletes for Christ in Virginia.

Achievement and Recognition

Recognition for achievement in sports is given by the awarding of letters. An athlete who participates in a sport for an entire season stands out in skill and sportsmanship and shows pride in his school is eligible for a letter.

Parents who wish to become involved in athletics are encouraged to make this known to the school. Coaching, providing transportation, and donation of equipment are several ways parents may assist Seton in its athletic endeavors. All such donations of time and expense will be coordinated by the athletic director.

Sports Management Internship program

Seton’s Athletic Department is announcing a new Sports Management Internship program. Open to interested upperclassman especially but underclassmen would be considered, a limited number of positions are available.  A complete description of the program and manager’s responsibilities is available from AD Dan VanderWoude and includes completing a Seton-paid CPR course. Participants earn a varsity letter.
