We approach High School athletics with a firm belief that our programs can provide memorable, fulfilling experiences for our students. Red Bank Catholic's Athletic Program endeavors to offer opportunities for our students to develop their athletic interests and skills in an environment that honors competitive excellence, sportsmanship and camaraderie. From the ball field to the locker room, the successes and failures of athletic competition provide personal challenges, which hold the potential to develop teamwork, build character, and instill respect. To achieve these goals, we insist that our coaches pursue success within a set of rules that honors the importance of honesty and integrity. We expect our students to carry forward in their lives the lessons learned in honest athletic competition. We expect that by graduation day, our athletes will have enjoyed competitive, athletic experiences that make them citizens who appreciate the importance of physical fitness and the benefits of an active lifestyle.
