The families of our school and Religious Education students participating in our sports, make up the Association and take on two primary responsibilities: volunteering and fundraising. We look to them as role-models for our children through their active involvement in numerous volunteer positions, committees, and fundraising events. Gym duty help in our concessions area, at our admissions table and as general security during home volleyball and basketball grade school games is the only mandatory volunteer time. The number of shifts required is determined by the number of their children participating. All other volunteer opportunities are optional, but encouraged. Monies raised by the Association from any fundraising efforts are incorporated into its annual budget.
A general meeting is held in May of each year to introduce the entire Athletic Association to new families and to also answer any questions or make any clarifications for current members who wish to attend.
The Athletic Committee
The Athletic Committee manages the overall Association with strategic leadership, administrative oversite, operational policies and procedures, budget administration and planning. It is made up of the Chair, Vice Chair, Director, Secretary, Treasurer, Grade Respresentatives and Sport & Event Coordinators. Meetings are held the third Monday of each month at 7p.m. in the basement Scout Room of the Parish Center. Members of the Athletic Association are welcome to attend. See the Handbook
for detailed information on the terms and responsibilities of committee members. Contact any of the current members if you have any questions or are interested in becoming a member.
One of the primary goals of our Athletic Association is to develop good sportsmanship in our student athletes. As a tangible way to show them the importance of sportsmanship, the Athletic Committee has instituted the Dr. Michael Cary Cavalier Spirit Award. The Award is given annually to two 8th grade students athletes (male and female) in either the school or religious education program. Recipients are selected based upon demonstration of exceptional dedication to their team, their effort in practices and games, and their Christian attitude towards teammates, opponents and coaches.
To be considered for the award, players must be nominated. Coaches, parents or other participants or observers of the athletic program can make nominations
. Players in any of the sports offered at Christ King (volleyball, basketball, track & field and softball) are eligible.
The nomination deadline is in May each year, at which time they are reviewed and the recipients determined by a subcommittee of the Athletic Committee consisting of the chair, vice chair, and volleyball, basketball, track and softball coordinators along with 8th Grade and Religious Education Representatives. The committee also seeks advisory input from the Pastor, School Principal and 8th Grade Homeroom and Religious Education Teachers.
If you have questions or comments about the award, please contact the current Athletic Committee Chair.
