What is the Frassati Challenge?
The Frassati Challenge is an athletic event in which the school faculty challenges groups of students in various sporting events. To date, these challenges included sports such as volleyball, tennis, golf, and ultimate frisbee with the cross country team.
Ultimately, the events are about embracing the Christian values of sportsmanship, mutual respect, and having fun in competition.
Impact on Students
One of the goals for the Frassati Challenge is to foster a stronger connection between faith and athletics. We want to teach our students that dedication, perseverance, and fair play are not just essential in sports, but are fundamental tenets of a meaningful life. As they engage in spirited competition, they also learn to embody the teachings of empathy and compassion, creating a positive environment within our school community.
“The volleyball team and I thought the Frassati challenge was so fun this year. The teachers, coaches, and Father put a talented team together to make it competitive. We had fun playing against their retired athleticism, and ended up winning! Thank you for challenging us!”
“The Frassati challenge was a great way to experience our faith outside of Mass or specific Catholic settings. It helped me realize we can practice our faith in so many other ways.”
“The Frassati challenge game was a fun way to get some friendly competition between the teachers and students while learning about the impact that Bl. Frassati had during his lifetime.”
