Athletics Legacy

Consistent with East Catholic’s mission, athletics plays a significant role in the holistic development of each student-athlete. Our athletic department intends to teach the core values of respect, self-discipline, accountability, sacrifice, and teamwork. In fact, 87% of East students participate in at least one varsity sport each year, with the majority participating in multiple sports. Our combination of quality coaching, committed participation, being a member of the challenging CCC conference, and a great deal of effort has let to great success since East Catholic opened in 1961.
