Athletic Directors: Catholic School Sports, Students Harmed by Policies Embracing Gender Ideology
Athletic Directors: Catholic School Sports, Students Harmed by Policies Embracing Gender Ideology
2/10/2016 || Catholic high school sports programs are not simply intended to allow students to achieve success on the field, they are an important part of the mission of Catholic schools to form students in the faith, according to athletic directors at faithful Catholic high schools, and compromising these programs by embracing gender ideology policies that are contrary to Church teaching will bring harm to both Catholic school sports and to students.

As The Cardinal Newman Society reported last month, the Catholic schools and bishops in Nebraska are challenging a state athletic association policy allowing high school students to play sports based on their gender identity. Catholic schools in other states have faced similar policy disputes with state athletic associations. And “every single diocesan school across the country will eventually be confronted with new guidelines allowing student athletes to compete according to gender identity,” Patrick Storey, athletic director at Holy Family Academy in Manassas, Va., an Honor Roll School of Excellence, told the Newman Society.
