Our Philosophy

Our athletic program is an integral part of the total curriculum. It provides our students the opportunity for physical, social and emotional growth through interscholastic competition. Student-athletes, coaches and parents are called upon to work together in a true spirit of sportsmanship to assist in creating an environment in which we remain faithful to the philosophy of the Sacred Heart education.

The goal of the athletic program is to provide a positive educational experience for our athletes. We offer a broad range of programs at Carrollton, each responsive to the developmental needs of our students. Through competition, students can develop greater knowledge of their physical potential, the self confidence that comes from exceeding personal limits, and a deeper understanding of the joys and responsibilities of being part of a team.

We provide our students with an opportunity to participate in a wide variety of sports. Such participation is a privilege that carries with it responsibilities to the school, sport, student body, community, and student-athlete. We are committed to supplying the necessary tools for a successful program, and in return, we require a high level of commitment from our athletes.

Athletic Programs

High School Programs

Carrollton’s High School program competes as a member of the Florida High School Athletic Association. All athletes are required to follow and abide by the rules set forth by the FHSAA and the Carrollton Student handbook. Team selection at this level is very competitive and based on ability. The intention at this level is to compete for State titles in each sport. Playing time is not guaranteed, and therefore not all athletes will receive the same participation opportunities in games and contests.

Junior High School/6th Grade Programs

Carrollton’s Junior High/6th Grade program competes as a member of the South Florida Middle School Conference. All athletes are required to follow and abide by the rules set forth by the SFMSC and the Carrollton Student handbook. Our Junior High program is considered as a transitional period. The athletes will move from a learning experience to an increasingly competitive environment. The intention is to prepare the athletes for interscholastic high school competition. Individual skills will be practiced along with increased time spent on real game situations and strategies. Tryouts will be held to select the teams in the Junior High when the number of participants necessitates it. To learn more, view our Try Out and Start Date Information and our Athletic Forms pages.

Intermediate School Programs

Grades 4 and 5
Our program is designed to introduce our students to the various sports that we offer at Carrollton. We focus on the individual skills required to participate and to be successful in a given sport. We encourage all of our students to participate. These Developmental Programs give those who are interested in strengthening the skills necessary to compete an excellent opportunity.

Grade 6
Students at this age may decide to participate in the Developmental Programs or the Junior High Program which is an increasingly competitive athletic environment. Being eligible to decide which program at each season gives the Sixth graders the best of both worlds. In this way, each student can develop her strengths and interests as an athlete.
