Middle School Athletics

Growing both in body and spirit

Eastside Catholic Middle School is committed to helping all young people grow and maintain healthy bodies as well as strong spirits and active intellects. We want our students to enjoy an active life; therefore, we emphasize collaboration, inclusion and skill development in all our sports and physical education programs.
 
In addition to our required fitness and health curriculum, the middle school participates in the Archdiocese of Seattle Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) athletic program. Our athletics program is consistent with the mission and vision of our school and the philosophy of the Archdiocese of Seattle. We encourage all students to be involved in at least one CYO team during each year of middle school.

Archdiocese of Seattle CYO Philosophy

Athletic programs are seen as one way of implementing the mission of CYO. Program goals include increasing: 
• self-confidence and self-reliance,
• interpersonal competence,
• a sense of caring toward others, and
• skills development.
Youth are brought together from different parishes and schools, and social backgrounds in an atmosphere that fosters the recognition of one's strengths and limitations, the lessons of winning and losing, and respect for all involved: fellow players, opponents, coaches and officials. In other words, CYO is in the business of teaching life values that aid boys and girls in their development toward adulthood. It is worth noting that CYO Athletics does not view itself primarily as a sport developmental program.

Additional Middle School Athletic Opportunities

In addition to the CYO programs offered by Eastside Catholic, there are a number of other athletic opportunities for ECMS students to participate in.
