Athletic clinics at Xaverian help participants work as a team, build various skills, and exceed their highest expectations. 
This Summer, our popular athletic clinics will be offered to both boys and girls entering Grades 4 through 9. The staff includes our own Xaverian Brothers High School head coaches and several Ursuline Academy head coaches, assistant coaches, special guest alumni and varsity players. All clinics will be held Monday through Thursday at our new and improved athletic facilities on the campus of Xaverian Brothers High School.

These athletic clinics are spread out over a three week period. Students participating in these clinics are encouraged to sign up for a workshop during the same week. All students participating in both an athletic clinic and workshop will be able to take advantage of a full well rounded day at Xaverian.

*Participants taking advantage of both morning and afternoon programs should bring a bag lunch and will be escorted to the cafeteria and supervised from 12:00 - 12:30 p.m.  After lunch all participants will be escorted to their afternoon program.*
