Athletics – Children

Welcome to Saint Brigid Athletics.

The Saint Brigid children’s athletic leagues are open to all boys and girls who are parishioners of St. Brigid, St. Benedict, and St. Andrew Catholic Churches or attend Holy Redeemer Catholic School.  We offer Soccer, Basketball, and Girls Volleyball.

All St. Brigid Athletic Ministry programs are run by active parent volunteers. The success of the children’s athletic program is dependent upon volunteers serving as coaches and assistant coaches.   We have a Program Director and Athletic Director who help administer the program but the actual coaching is all done by parents.  Parent participation is encouraged, and you will enjoy the program more as you become active with the children.  Please prayerfully consider participating in this important children’s ministry.  Please contact Bryan McFarland if you are interested.

All volunteer parents must have completed the VIRTUS Program screening and training before becoming involved with the program. More information is available at https://archatl.com/ministries-services/safe-environment/safe-environment-compliance/.

The sessions will run for 75 minutes and will be geared towards skill development with gameplay towards the end. You can sign up your daughter for whatever parish location is closest to you.  Ideally, we would love to have a 5th/6th and 7th/8th division, but if the numbers do not work we will combine them all together.
