The St. Pius X Sports Lineup
The athletic programs offered by SPX, are an extension and expression of the values upon which our religious beliefs are based. As such, love of God and love of neighbor are two goals we strive to attain.
It is our intention to provide programs and direction that allow each child to maximize the talents which God bestowed. At the same time, all associated with the program must conduct themselves in a manner that exhibits good sportsmanship and love of neighbor. SPX parents and athletes shall adhere to the SPX sports code of conduct.
The Catholic Youth Organization has partnered with St. Vincent Sports Performance and the Athlete’s Concussion Alliance to provide the tools and information regarding the CYO Concussion Education Initiative and Policy. It is very important that all CYO coaches, parents and participants are educated in the signs and symptoms of a concussion and how to proceed if a child has sustained or is suspected of sustaining a concussion.
Our Spirit Wear is a St. Pius X clothing line that features t-shirts, sweatshirts and fleeces. You would be hard-pressed to find someone—parents or students—not wearing one an item from our Spirit Wear catalogue.
The SPX Athletic Committee provides oversight for all SPX athletic functions while ensuring Christian values and a sense of fair play.
As part of its ongoing commitment to the care and protection of children, the Archdiocese of Indianapolis has implemented an online training program called Safe and Sacred. All priests, deacons, employees of the archdiocese, and volunteers who have contact with children must complete the training, even if they have taken another child protection program previously.
