An athletics program with a focus on leadership and sportsmanship
Eastside Catholic is committed to an athletic program of excellence. At the high school level, 17 athletic teams are offered at the varsity level with many offering JV and JV-C level teams as well. More than 75 percent of our high school students play at least one sport each year. Our middle school students participate in the Archdiocese of Seattle Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) athletic program where they compete in three seasons of sports, including cross country, soccer, volleyball and track and field. Learn more about the Middle School athletic program.
