The mission is to encourage principles that will allow our students/athletes to be successful in softball as well as in their academic and spiritual life. Cura scholastica is an essential component of our program. Players are expected to maintain above average grades in all classes; without an education, women’s softball would not be possible.
Through prayer services, school Masses and reflection we hope to foster our players’ religiosity. Being a person for others; whether in the spiritual realm, the playing field or the classroom; is imperative for individual and group growth. Therefore, we must all be vigilant to practice daily cura personalis.
A team player is one who is more concerned about the team than herself. She is a young woman who is willing to sacrifice in any situation for the good of the whole group. Our players are responsible for representing the Gonzaga Prep softball program as well as the Prep community during the season AND during the off-season as upstanding citizens. Good citizenship is as important to our program as is hard-work and excellent play. Remember the choices one makes affects all the people in the program, not just one individual. We expect our players to follow all team rules and expectations as well as those of the school. Gonzaga Prep Softball will only be successful if everyone involved—players, parents, and coaches—are committed to our standards. We are ambassadors for Gonzaga Preparatory School.
