Meet the Athletic Department

Our professional staff is aware of the individual needs of our student athletes, as well as the social implications of being able to work as a member of a team. Students are given the opportunity, through extensive training, excellent equipment, and superior coaching to reach their maximum potential. 

Our goal is to inspire in our students the capacity for excellence in a highly competitive society while stressing that their success is defined not always by results, but in their dedication to their teammates in working toward a common goal.  It is in this way that we also hope to instill a deep sense of pride and accomplishment within our students that have been a part of Xaverian Athletics.
