Athletic Director, Mr. Tom Walsh, firstname.lastname@example.org
The philosophy of our athletics program is to development in each child a strong moral compass and the ability to work as a team member to achieve our goals as one team and one family. The whole child is developed, physically, intellectually and spiritually. Our faith is what guides our athletics program and it is our guiding light as we progress throughout the years.
