The Mary Queen of Peace Athletic Association was newly formed in 1992 to administer both the operations and the funding of the Parish Youth Athletics Programs. The Athletic Association runs youth soccer and baseball/softball, and track and field programs for grade K – 8. The Athletic Association also runs basketball, volleyball, and golf programs for grades 3 - 8. The teams play in the South Central District of the Archdiocesan CYC Athletic Program. The youth of MQP Parish, as well as non-parishioner residents living within the parish boundaries may participate in the program.
The purpose of the MQP Athletic Association is to provide an opportunity to teach our children self-discipline, teamwork, sportsmanship, camaraderie, a sense of fair play, respect for themselves, their teammates and their opponents. Most importantly to teach our children the Christian values that are the foundation of our Parish.
Funding for the Athletic Program is administered by the Association and comes from individual player fees.
The Athletic Association is made up of a nine member Board, each serving a three-year term with three members elected yearly by the parish on a rotating basis. Volunteers are always needed and welcome, in a variety of roles including: leadership positions in the Association, Parish Directors of each of the individual sports, Coaches, Assistant Coaches and Uniform/Equipment Managers. Volunteers need not be parents of children participating in the sports.
