Interscholastic activities are an important aspect of Bishop John J. Snyder High School. Participation in high school athletics is an extension of what happens in the classroom. The opportunity for a student to participate in sports is a privilege, not a right. Thus, there is a higher level of expectation from our student athletes and they must abide by certain rules. Bishop John J. Snyder High School’s purpose is to stimulate and guide students in their spiritual, intellectual, moral, emotional, social and physical development through the acquisition and use of knowledge in the athletic arena.
