Athletics Philosophy

Ss. Neumann Goretti High School Athletics has a long and storied tradition of success with the commitment to educate our student-athletes on the importance of values and team work. As a member of the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association (PIAA) and the Philadelphia Catholic League (PCL), we look to give our student-athletes the best possible experience during their years here at Neumann Goretti. Participating in athletics is a privilege at Neumann Goretti High School, and we always give emphasize the role of the STUDENT before the athlete.

Our dedicated coaching staff consists of men and women who serve as outstanding role models for our student-athletes. These coaches understand that besides competing to win, their role as coach includes development of character and sportsmanship on all levels. The athletic philosophy at Neumann Goretti High School is no different from our academic philosophy – the playing fields are an extension of the classroom.

Our student-athletes understand they represent not just themselves, but the entire Neumann Goretti High School community when they put on that Saints uniform. How they conduct themselves on and off the field is important to their overall well-being and attitude toward success.
