Welcome to the home of Cardinal Athletics!


The administration of Pope Francis High School believes that athletics are an extension of the classroom, affording student-athletes opportunities for growth, learning, leadership and excellence. Pope Francis offers a variety of sports in the fall, winter and spring seasons. We encourage students of all abilities to get involved in our athletic programs. Please contact our Athletic Director, John Goda, if you have any questions about our sports teams or if you need additional information.

Athletic Director: John Goda (413-331-2480 ext 4415 or jgoda@popefrancishigh.org)

Athletic Trainer: Sarah Myers (sarah17myers@gmail.com)

All athletes MUST have a valid physical on file with the school nurse in order to practice or tryout. Physicals are valid for a total of 13 months. All freshmen, juniors and transfer students also need to take the online Vital Signs Concussion Test (instructions for the test, and other paperwork required for athletic participation, can be found under the “Athletic Policies and Required Forms” tab)

Tickets for the Winter Sports Banquet are on sale now, and can be purchased from Mr. Goda in the athletic office or from Ms. Halluch in the main office. Tickets are $15 for students and $20 for adults. The winter sports banquet is scheduled for Sunday March 11th at 10 am at the Castle of Knights in Chicopee.
