Holy Cross School is extremely proud to participate in the Syracuse Parochial League Basketball Program. It’s unusual for children in elementary school to play competitively, but our boys and girls have the opportunity through this wonderful program. Students participate in regular practices where they learn the fundamentals of the game. Coaches focus on teaching younger children the basic skills of the game such as dribbling, shooting, and learning the positions on the court, as well as putting an emphasis on making friends and being a good sport. As they move up in the divisions, coaches emphasize to players the importance of teamwork and other valuable life lessons and values. Holy Cross’ boys and girls teams play regular games against other local Catholic schools. Go Crusaders!
