Athletics

Athletics is a vital and integral part of WPA. The SJCS Athletic Program offers students opportunities for competition with other Class AA schools in the South Carolina High School League (SCHSL).

In demonstrating their love for and loyalty to WPA and the teams which represent the school, all students, team members, and coaches are expected to exercise a courtesy and hospitality to visiting teams and officials and to conduct themselves in a sportsmanlike manner at all times. The conduct of parents should also reflect this Christian mission of St. Joseph’s. Athletes and fans are encouraged to be mindful of the fundamentals of good sportsmanship:

  • Show courtesy and respect for all faculty, staff, coaches, fellow students, opponents, officials, and property
  • Know, understand, and appreciate the rules of the contest
  • Exercise self-control and restraint
  • Appreciate skill and performance regardless of an athlete’s affiliation
  • Maintain a healthy desire to excel and win, while having the ability to win and lose gracefully
