School Life


Cathedral School for Boys Athletics values the development of an active body through physical expression and the belief that exercise facilitates both personal and intellectual growth. This program is designed to focus on the process of physical activity and athletic achievement, with the intent of encouraging all athletes to strive for their maximum potential, both as individual and team members. The athletic department views practices and games as the opportunity for Cathedral School athletes to demonstrate the ability; to always try your best, never give up and have fun while participating competitively. It is our expectation that all Cathedral School teams and individual members will demonstrate an understanding of competitive fairness, sportsmanship, character, respect, accountability, dedication, teamwork and cooperation. Continuing to strive for these attributes will provide each athlete with a positive experience that is both challenging and rewarding.

Cathedral School for Boys competes in the Bay Area Interscholastic Athletic League (BAIAL) and Catholic Youth Organization (CYO).

Our most competitive teams are placed in the BAIAL. After teams are selected, players are not guaranteed a certain amount of playing time or preferred playing position. If they’re too many participants for one BAIAL team, remaining student-athletes will comprise a second and/or third team that will be placed in CYO. In CYO, the emphasis is placed on participation.

The purpose of the BAIAL is to develop, in mind, body and spirit, student-athletes and school teams, who act with integrity and character, and compete with sportsmanship, purpose and pride; and to safely and responsibly administer league contests with conscious respect for the games, teams, officials and member schools.
Note: Specific athletics information, including practice and game schedule, is only accessible to current CSB families and alumni. If you are a current parent or alumnus, please log in using the Community Login button at the top of this page.

Coaching Philosophy

The coach is a teacher first, and the court/field is their classroom. The Cathedral School Athletic Department seeks to develop all student-athletes at their appropriate level. To meet this expectation, coaches will challenge student athletes and provide positive reinforcement.
