Holy Cross supports our Board's mission of Healthy Active Living and Sport providing a variety of year-round sports training and athletic activities that:
develop physical fitness;
learn movement and fair play skills;
demonstrate courage and commitment;
experience success; and
participate in a sharing of talents by way of a fun and safe environment.
Holy Cross offers countless opportunities to participate on competitive or recreational athletic teams. We participate in many sports with competitions across Ontario.
Our athletes participate in Central Ontario Secondary School Athletics (COSSA), Lake Ontario Secondary School Athletics (LOSSA), and Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations (OFSSA) competitions. View each organization's website for eligibility, directors, conveners, transfer policy, and schedules.
We encourage all of our students to reap the benefits of being physically active every day, which includes improved concentration abilities and collaboration skills. Players, coaches, spectators and referees agree to follow our Board's Code of Conduct.

Team Player Prayer
God, let me play well and fairly, by respecting the rules, opponents, and officials. Lead me into treating all participants justly and with dignity. In competing, help me to learn something that matters. Let the competition make me strong but never hostile, humble never boastful. May I rejoice in victory but never let myself rejoice in the adversity of others. If I am fortunate enough to win, allow me to be happy. If I am denied, keep me from envy. Remind me that sports are just games and that I set an example, so help me to ensure that it is a good one.
