SPORT SIGN - UPS
In grades 5 - 6, teams are sponsored through the Dallas Parochial League and competition is with other Catholic schools in Dallas. The focus during these grades continues to be development of each player's skills. If an athlete misses practice or displays an attitude that is not conducive to development, the coach is not required to play the student - athlete(s) in question during the following game(s). In the event that more than one team must be fielded, the process for selection will be more controlled so players will be more equally divided. Athletes may be grouped by position and then selected at random. The Athletic Director will supervise this process with assistance from the coaches.
In grades 7 - 8, skills development is still emphasized, but competition is also heavily stressed. An athlete may be held out for missing practice or displaying an attitude non - conducive to development. Team selection process will be in accordance with DPL guidelines and may include "A/B Team" selection and/or "Varsity / Jr. Varsity" selection. The Athletic Director will oversee this process and be responsible
