Athletics Legacy

Consistent with all East Catholic programs, sports play a significant role in the development of the whole person. Our team sports program is intended to impress upon our students the need for healthy and meaningful exercise. In fact, 80%+ of East students participate in our athletics programs every year. Our recipe of good coaching, committed participants, a competitive regular season schedule, and a great deal of effort has paid off with big wins since 1961.

We encourage all students to participate in a minimum of one varsity sport, and in most circumstances to enjoy a multi-sport experience while at East Catholic.

Player Profiles

The Athletics Department is excited to introduce a new feature called Player Profiles, which will highlight our student-athletes and let you get to know them a bit better. Teachers, coaches, and peers recognize selected students for their athletic accomplishments, displays of sportsmanship, and personal achievements. These athletes embody the Play Like A Champion Today model. To find the Player Profiles, please follow us on Twitter @Eagles__Nest.
