About Saint John's Soccer

Saint John's Soccer

The soccer program at Saint John's is about Mission, Excellence, and Brotherhood.

Everything we do in the program will be directed toward fulfilling the Mission of our school.  As a Catholic and Xaverian institution, we strive first and foremost to educate the whole person; body, mind, and spirit.  We believe that character matters.

We believe that by doing the little things well, we create an environment where excellence can be achieved.  Winning is the result of hard work and attention to detail.

We wish to enhance and promote the lasting memories and life long friendships that are formed at Saint John's.  We value the bonds of brotherhood that are formed inside and outside of the classroom, strengthened in a special way on the soccer field.
