Sports at St. Nicholas
Cross CountryCross Country is a competitive team sport offered in the fall for boys and girls from Levels 5 through 7. The season begins very soon after school starts. The meet course is one mile long and fairly flat. Parents are responsible for getting their runners to and from the meets.
Practices are held for 30 minutes right after school every Tuesday and Thursday until the last meet in September. Practices usually begin with a brief team meeting to discuss technique, hydration, nutrition, and upcoming events. Then participants will run. Any parents who might be able to assist once or twice a week at practice are welcomed and very much appreciated. No running experience is necessary for either students or parent volunteers.
The lacrosse team is open to both boys and girls from Levels 5 through 7. The purpose of this team and league is to introduce young athletes to the fastest growing sport in America.
We are an instructional team in an instructional league. New players are welcome! Girls are welcome but there will not be a girls and boys team. We play as one team and by lacrosse rules. Students must be transported to games and be supervised by their parents.
Each player is responsible for his/her own equipment. The list is provided by the squad coach.
The Spirit Squad is open to students from Levels 5 through 7. No gymnastic ability is required. If your child can yell, they would qualify! Students learn the basics of cheerleading techniques and how to show support for their favorite team. After school practices will be scheduled by the squad leader.
Participants should wear a St. Nicholas theme shirt and shorts or sweat pants, depending on the weather. Color to be determined. Students must be transported to games and be supervised by their parents.
Soccer Shots is the premier intro to the soccer program in the Chattanooga area. The focus is on building stronger youth beyond the game in a non-competitive, skills based, encouraging atmosphere. Coaches are professionally trained and certified to teach young children. The curriculum was developed in a team effort by professional soccer players and childhood educators. The soccer shots program is offered as an after school enrichment class to students in Levels 1 through 4.
