Nazareth School San Diego, California USA
Nazareth School Sports Program
The purpose of the After School Sports Program is to teach the basic Christian values of sportsmanship, cooperation and teamwork. The goals are to help promote friendship, provide leadership opportunities and help the students widen a positive attitude towards sports and athletic competition. The After School Sports Program is in a competitive league that believes we play to win, but "not to win at the costs."
It is expected that every boy and girl will be given the opportunity to play each game during each season.
Player Eligibility Grades 5-8

3. THREE STRIKES AND YOU'RE OUT
Any team member who misses a total of three practices or games due to unexcused absences will be removed from the team.
Any team member who is asked to leave at any time during practice due to a discipline problem will be given two chances to correct his/her behavior. The third instance will result in being removed from the team. There will be no exceptions.
