Training for the Future
The philosophy of Marian Catholic’s Athletics Department is the same as the school overall. We hold our student athletes to the highest expectations. We require them to demonstrate integrity, sportsmanship, and camaraderie; and, in addition to teaching them the skills of the game, we instill in our student athletes life skills that they can bring with them to college and beyond.
Marian Catholic’s athletic teams benefit from our expansive campus of more than 80 acres. Our outdoor facilities include: Spartan Stadium, which is home to our football and soccer teams; two baseball fields; two softball fields, eight tennis courts, and running trails. Our indoor facilities include two gymnasiums, a renovated weight room, and training and team room. Spartan esports have access to a team lab with 23 alienware gaming desktops.
Marian Catholic occasionally seeks adults to fill coaching vacancies who possess a good work ethic and sport-specific experience. Any inquires and resumes should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Marian is currently seeking assistant coaches for women's volleyball and men's and women's track.
