SportsLeader at BT
August 8, 2017

Blessed Trinity Catholic High School and its Athletic Department will partner with SportsLeader over the next four years to implement their Catholic virtue-based formation program for coaches.

SportsLeader was founded in 2004 and is endorsed by the Vatican Office of Church and Sport.

In offering athletics programs at Blessed Trinity we seek to use sport as a context for physical, intellectual, and spiritual growth. Our partnership with SportsLeader represents a continuation of that great Titan tradition in a very intentional way.

SportsLeader, based in Louisville, Ky., will work with Fr. Reto Davatz, chaplain, Ricky Turner, athletics director and the BT coaching staff to incorporate the methods and curriculum based on the four pillars of the program: Virtue, Mentoring, Ceremony and Catholic Identity.

Through virtue-based formation of our coaches and student-athletes we will create opportunities for mentorship and ceremony while embracing our Catholic identity in an inclusive manner. Our goal is that the student-athlete experience will significantly contribute to Blessed Trinity graduating young women and men who change the world for the sake of peace and goodwill.

SportsLeader has worked with public and private universities and colleges across the country including The Ohio State University and Michigan State University. They have also partnered with high schools nationwide and in Canada. BT is the first Georgia school to incorporate the program.

The program will be introduced to the student-athletes via the coaching staffs of all 22 sports programs during the 2017-2018 season and we will introduce several SportsLeader traditions, activities and events throughout the year.
