Working to make our every thought, word, and action pleasing to God.

Athletic Program

The Athletic Program is sponsored by Holy Family Parish and is to reflect the Catholic Faith and the faith and values of Holy Family Parish and of the Roman Catholic Church. These values will be reflected in decisions we make, in the approaches that we take to the children in our program, and in everything about our Athletic Program.

Holy Family Parish Athletics is a participation-based, volunteer-run program. Every child who signs up for a sport is placed on a roster, the number of teams is adjusted each year based on the number of participants. In addition, every participant receives required playing time each game or match.

We are a member of the Rockford Parochial League, which includes the other Rockford Area Catholic Schools. Non-conference games against other local teams are occasionally added to our schedules. There is a league tournament at the end of each sport’s season.
Our Athletic Director, Curt Kidder can be contacted by email at athletics@holyfamilyrockford.org.
