The Department of Athletics aims to successfully integrate academic and athletic experiences in the Holy Cross Tradition. The Athletic Program consists of 23 interscholastic sports and one intramural sport.
We promote positive sportsmanship, integrity, camaraderie, and academic and athletic excellence. The student-athletes at Holy Cross understand they represent not just themselves, but the entire Holy Cross community when they wear the green and gold uniform. Each year approximately 75% of our students participate in athletics.
Holy Cross High School is a member of the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference (CIAC) and the Naugatuck Valley League (NVL). The Athletic Program is administered by the Director of Athletics and approximately 45 coaches and one full-time athletic trainer. The dedicated, experienced, coaching staff teaches young athletes the importance of teamwork, respect for the games and how to develop their athletic abilities on and off the playing field.
