Eagles Athletics

We are pleased to offer our students a variety of choices in activities to round out their education. We believe that participation in sports strengthens the mind as well as the body, develops leadership skills, and teaches critical social skills.


Sports Philosophy

We recognize that the imperishable crown offered by Jesus Christ far exceeds any of the perishable crowns or trophies offered by this world. As a Catholic school, SJPII upholds Christian values and principles. Though our athletic teams strive to win in the sense of having the best score, we recognize the real value of Catholic school athletics is realized only if it fosters the development of the human person, both in spirit and in body. We strive to cultivate Christian character, strengthening personal integrity, responsibility, and promoting the pursuit of excellence in all endeavors so as to glorify Jesus Christ in our athletic programs.
Participation on a team is a privilege. With this privilege come responsibilities in the areas of preparation, attitude, sportsmanship, and academics. These responsibilities exist both in and out of school, and both in athletic and non-athletic settings. We recognize the need for God’s support and guidance in meeting these responsibilities.

St. John Paul II Catholic School Athletics Mission Statement:
The St. John Paul II (SJPII) Athletic Program dedicates itself to the pursuit of excellence in athletics within the framework of a Catholic community and in accordance with its primary role as an educator and spiritual guide.  The athletics program is committed to providing opportunities for the individual student-athlete to reach his/her highest potential while developing the qualities and spirit of a Catholic Christian.


Conference Affiliation:
SJPII has recently become an independent school not associated with any conference. SJPII is actively searching for a conference membership. A robust schedule of games and matches have been established for the 2023-2024 school year. It is the hope of the administration that membership into will follow soon. Prior to this school year SJPII was a member of the South Eastern Middle School Athletic Conference (SEMSAC), the conference is composed of area private schools throughout the Sandhills area. This conference has disbanded. SJPII plays under the North Carolina Independent High School Athletic Association rules. In addition to playing former teams from the conference, SJPII teams will on occasion play other schools within a two-hour radius. Thus, SJPII athletes play students from diverse backgrounds and skill levels.
