…Ahead of the game!

Welcome new parents!  This email serves as way for parents to stay "ahead of the game" and in the know of all things Athletics.  We hope that you find it informative, but to the point. 


Playing a fall sport?  Have you paid your $75 Transportation Fee yet?  

All Transportation fees are due by August 30th. 

For your convenience, we are offering the option to pay your $75 transportation fee by credit card.  To pay by credit card call the school (301-662-4210) Monday-Thursday 8 am-4 pm.  You may also pay by cash or check (payable to Saint John's Catholic Prep, please put your child's name & sport in the memo). 


Trainer Update

Many of you are aware of our athletic trainer situation, which has been problematic coming into the fall.   Our previous trainer, Ms. Lindsey Copp, moved on to a new school, and our contracted provider has yet to identify a permanent replacement.  The situation developed at the very last minute and has been frustrating.  While games will have certified trainers present, only some of our practices are currently being covered at this time.   We do hope to resolve it very soon and are exploring a number of options.


Thinking of playing a fall sport?  We want you!!

Girls' Soccer, both Boys' & Girls' Cross Country and Golf are still accepting athletes to participate this season.

Girls' Soccer contact Coach Linus Louketis at

Cross Country (both Boys' & Girls') contact Coach McRoberts at

Golf contact Coach Phil Mees at


Want to be an active member of our Athletic Boosters Club??

We will be holding a meeting on Tuesday, September 5 at 6:30 pm in the Learning Commons for anyone interested in becoming more involved with the SJCP Athletic Boosters this year.  Our objective is to re-constitute our "board" and re-establish a core group of people to work on Booster activities now and in the years to come. 


The primary areas in which we need volunteers include:


Spirit Wear/Spirit Shop

BBQ Bash Event


Other Fundraisers


We know your time is valuable.  Therefore, we appreciate the opportunity to introduce ourselves and meet you.  All the while sharing our goals and plans for SJCP Boosters.  This meeting is intended to be informative and there is no obligation to volunteer at this time, so please join us! Any questions, contact Dan Strayton, President of the Booster Club at
