Welcome to Middle School Athletics

Dear Middle School students and families,

I trust that all of you have had a wonderful summer! I hope that you share in my excitement leading up to the 2023-2024 school year! We look forward to seeing our students grow in our Middle School Athletic program this year.

The guiding principle behind Sacred Heart Greenwich’s support of interscholastic athletics is our belief that it directly supports the School’s overall mission to educate women to have independence of judgment, personal freedom, and strength of character so that they can become leaders with broad intellectual and spiritual horizons. Sacred Heart team sports offer a natural environment to build leadership skills and confidence, develop relationships and learn how to work as a team to achieve a common goal.

The Sacred Heart Athletics Policies and Procedures Handbook has been updated for the 2023-2024 year.  This handbook outlines our sports offerings for each season and other important details regarding participating in athletics this year.  The handbook is located in the athletics section of the parent portal.  Participation in the interscholastic athletics program is voluntary and open to grades 5-8 in the Middle School.  All students and parents are required to e-sign and adhere to the Student-Athlete Code of Conduct and Principles of Communication located in the parent/student portal.  

Middle School Practice times typically run Monday through Wednesday 3:15-4:15 pm.  However, some games and practices may fall outside of this standard schedule.  It is the expectation that our MS athletes make a full commitment to their teams by attending all practices and games.  Please make an effort to schedule appointments on non-sports days.  Full details by sport can be found in our handbook and on the athletics website.

IMPORTANT DETAILS (please read carefully):

  • Wednesday, September 6th:  MS sports meeting for our student-athletes 3:00-3:20 pm in Dubois Gym.  This will be an opportunity for the girls to meet their coaches and learn a bit more about the season ahead.

  • Monday, September 11th: First day of MS practices (3:15-4:15 pm)

  • Sports Rosters: All new and returning students should have signed up for sports in May. If your child is unsure about their sign-up status, sport choice or wishes to change their sport selection, please contact Assistant Athletic Director, Michelle McCrae at mccraem@cshct.org

  • Magnus Health Forms: A yearly physical submitted through Magnus Health is required to participate in athletics at Sacred Heart. Paper copies are no longer accepted.  

  • MS Athletics Practice Pinnie:  All MS athletes participating in Basketball, Field Hockey, Lacrosse, and Soccer are required to purchase a SH Athletics reversible Pinnie from the school bookstore.  These will be required for daily practice.  They can be purchased using this link.  

  • Apparel for Home/Away Games:  We would like all of our student-athletes to wear Sacred Heart apparel during all athletic contests.  We strongly encourage all of our student-athletes to purchase the NEW PE sweatshirt and sweatpants for game days.  These can be purchased using this link.

I look forward to seeing our middle school students thrive, smile and grow in our program this year!

Go Heart,


Laurie Rousseau
Director of Athletics
