Wildcat Athletic Program Philosophy
 As an extension of our school's mission all activities at St John's are Christ-centered. Through its curricular activities, St John's strives to better equip children for service to the Lord by enriching their spiritual, physical, social, emotional, and intellectual growth. We base our philosophy on the ideas expressed in Colossians 3:17, "And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him."

Objectives
The participants will grow spiritually and show fruits of the Spirit while participating in the sports. "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law." (Galatians 5:22,23). The participants will grow emotionally and strive to meet their potential within the guidelines of good sportsmanship and respect for others. The participants will grow physically by engaging in skills that each particular sport requires. The participants will grow socially by learning the team concept and the joy of attaining goals together, win or lose.

Parent Info
Students in grades 5-8 may participate in interscholastic volleyball, basketball, and poms dance team. The permission form must be signed and returned before a player/member may practice. Your permission should be considered carefully. Weigh the extra time required for practices and games/performances with the time being needed for home studies and other activities. As with all extracurricular activities, students must keep their grades at the level consistent with their abilities. A marked drop in grades will result in a suspension from practices and games until the grades return to typical levels. Students from lower grades may be moved up during years when the number of participants from higher grades makes this necessary.
