ASJA student-athletes learn the value of teamwork, perseverance, and practice by competing in a variety of sports. Our youngest students are introduced to sports through the Saturday Morning Basketball program, coordinated by a dedicated group of parents. Students from 5th to 8th grade play interscholastic sports through the CII-3A Athletic league.
FOOTBALL & CHEER
In the Fall, our 5th to 8th-grade students play football and the 7th & 8th-grade cheer as part of the Evanston Catholic combined team.
What is Cross Country?
Long-distance running as a team sport. Athletes usually race across open terrain, mainly through a combination of woods, fields and hills. Course distances and terrains differ for each race.
For some of you, cross country may be new. With Cross Country (abbreviated XC) everyone competes! Everyone runs the same course, , at every meet, ALL athletes get to participate. For scoring, the first 7 runners to finish are considered the scoring team.
There are no cuts, and no bench to sit on and watch while others play!
