Athletics


Athletic involvement presents to students unique opportunities: to build community, character, integrity, discipline, and sportsmanship. Participating in athletic programs offers our students the opportunity to develop physical and athletic skills to compete in interscholastic sports and to participate in the tradition of athletic excellence at St Joseph High School--as well as to represent our entire school community.

A Tradition of Excellence

St Joseph High School has a tradition of excellence in athletics. The school boasts over 50 conference championship banners and 50 state championship banners from over a dozen varsity team sports. Many St Joseph student-athletes have also won individual state titles in their chosen sport.

The school is a member of the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference (CIAC) and the Fairfield County Interscholastic Athletic Conference (FCIAC). St Joes joined the FCIAC in 1994-95 (after a one year probation period in 1993-94). Prior to the FCIAC, St Joseph was a member of the Metropolitan Bridgeport Interscholastic Athletic Conference (MBIAC) in 1970 and later joined the All Connecticut Conference (ACC) in 1985 as a founding member.

Student Athlete Handbook

St Joseph High School is a Roman Catholic educational institution whose primary function is to educate the whole student. The students’ spiritual and academic growth is our focus, but we recognize the value of a comprehensive athletic program to enhance their experience. We will support our teams and our athletes in a positive and caring way. We will follow all CIAC, FCIAC and Saint Joseph High School regulations, goals, and objectives. We encourage our coaches to stress the importance of physical fitness, conditioning, and safety in all athletic activities.

Please visit the NCAA Clearinghouse website for all regulations, policies, expectations for those involved in the School's athletic program.

Transportation Waiver

Athletes are expected to travel to and from games on the bus with their team. However, we do grant waivers for very special circumstances (i.e. you live closer to the away site than to St Joe's). Please sign, have your child's coach sign and then have your child bring the Transportation Waiver Form in person to Mr Butler or Ms Nasser directly if there is a specific game that your child cannot ride the bus back to school following a game:

Transportation Waiver Form (must be submitted in person and must be signed by coach and AD)
