Holy Cross believes interscholastic athletics are an important part of a student-athlete’s total educational experience. The success of our athletic programs is based on student-athletes’ abilities to balance their participation with their academic requirements. In athletics, our goal is to provide a structured environment where our student-athletes can develop responsibility, work-ethic, and self-discipline.
Holy Cross sponsors interscholastic teams in the following middle school sports: baseball, basketball, cross country, flag football, soccer, swimming, track and field, and wrestling. On an individual basis students may participate in bowling, golf, and tennis.
Tiger Cub Athletic Club (TCAC)
The purpose of the Tiger Cub Athletic Club (TCAC) is tied to the mission of Holy Cross to educate the whole man. TCAC is a sports activities club open to all students in grades 5-8. Students are given the opportunity to develop physical and social skills through friendly competition. No student is cut from any sport and rules of participation guarantee “fair play”. Student leadership is fostered by allowing students to form teams and to exercise strategies during competition. Participation and Sportsmanship are prime values encouraged by the program.
New Orleans Athletic League Sports
The NOAL athletic program is one in which teams compete against other teams in the surrounding metropolitan area. The selected student-athletes represent Holy Cross in flag football, basketball, soccer and baseball in the New Orleans Athletic League. At the beginning of each season, players try out for a spot on the roster of teams representing Holy Cross at various grade levels. Participants in the 5th and 6th grades must be active members of a TCAC roster to be allowed to participate on a NOAL team in that particular sport if the season for that sport runs concurrently.
