ATHLETICS

Be your best. Do what is right, in the image of Christ, is our motto at St Edward. 

 

Our Athletic programs help develop Christian character by teaching the importance of teamwork, discipline, and good sportsmanship in addition to teaching the fundamentals of the sport.  Our small teams ensure individual coaching and plenty of playing time. For information on St. Edwards Athletic Programs, contact Athletic director Feather Webb at (615) 833-5770 ext 215.
