Welcome to the home of Cardinal Athletics!


The administration of Pope Francis Preparatory 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.

Virtual Athletic Training Room Information
Ms. Myers has put together a Virtual Athletic Training Room for our school community. You can find resources there for home health and fitness, a schedule of weekly office hours with Ms. Myers for athletic training advice, and a google calendar for scheduling individual consultations with Ms. Myers (for parents or students). Please email Ms. Myers for the Class Code for the Virtual Athletic Training Room.
