Participation in sports requires a number of qualities. While success in any sport requires commitment and perseverance, certain sports require additional qualities. Basketball, Baseball, Field Hockey, Football are all team endeavours and require a great ability to work and achieve cooperatively with other team members. Archery, Fishing, Golf, Gymnastics, Skiing and Karate represent more individual focussed achievements. For all kinds of sports the primary patron saint, St. Sebastian serves as a role model of dedication, endurance and fortitude. St. Christopher is also included in our patron saints of sports offerings because so many sports require travel, and St. Christopher is the patron Saint of Travel.
