Blessed Trinity's Athletics Program

The athletics program at Blessed Trinity is designed to provide skill development in sports along with legitimate competition. While winning is one goal, participation is also important. Every athlete gets a chance to play in games. Currently the Blessed Trinity Tigers are affiliated with the South Side Youth Organization (SSYO), a private school conference with 21 members. SSYO offers competition for 4th through 8th graders in different sports during the school year. Blessed Trinity hosts its own 2nd and 3rd grade basketball league, for which all 2nd and 3rd grade boys and girls may participate. Other schools in this league are Nativity of Mary (Bloomington), Annunciation Catholic School (Minneapolis) and the International School of Edina. Player participation fees are charged for each sport, but school policy states that no one will be barred from a team because of inability to pay. Registration periods are announced season by season in the school newsletter and on this web page. Blessed Trinity will offer sports in which there are sufficient player registrations to field at least one team.
