Excellence in Athletics
Powers Catholic is considered a leader in athletic competition across the region and state with 46 different athletic teams competing in 27 different sports. In all, Powers athletes have won 29 State Championships, more than 200 league and state tournament trophies, and earned more than 325 individual All State honors. The Powers Catholic High School Athletic Department demands a standard of excellence with all 44 athletic teams.
All of our athletes are required to develop spiritually, academically and socially. We believe our athletic activities are an important part of the Powers educational experience. Not only do they compete and excel in sports, but more importantly our athletes enhance their moral perspectives, broaden their intellectual and cultural views, gain confidence, establish social contacts and develop their emotional and physical fitness. We actively teach principles of faith, integrity, responsibility and servant leadership. Athletes are expected to participate in community service projects and attend mass together at community parishes on select Sundays.
Our teams have hosted fundraisers, led city beautification projects, and mentored students from neighboring schools. Our goal is to teach our students to serve and to prepare them for life, including making a positive impact on their community beyond graduation. We believe it is important to recognize that our Catholic identity resonates in the greater Flint community throughout the year.
Being part of a Powers Catholic athletic team is more than just a physical presence at the school between August and early June. We are committed to improving all aspects of our athletes’ high school experience by providing tools to live out their Catholic values beyond graduation. The Athletic Department also strives to create programs that create more synergies between Powers and our partners with Genesee County Catholic Schools. We are committed to expanding our students connection to the Catholic community as well as increasing alumni involvement in a variety of ways.
More than 80 percent of Powers Catholic students participate in one or more athletic teams or co-curricular activities. Research indicates that students who participate in school activities tend to perform better in the classroom than students who do not participate in school activities. All of our athletes, interscholastic as well as intramural, need to have a current physical on file to even practice. For a physical to be considered current it needs to be issued after April 15 of the previous school year. Please
