Mater Dei Catholic High School (MDCHS) offers a full range of athletic teams for young men and young women as well as a cheerleading squad. MDCHS competes in the Metro Conference, made up of 12 schools of the Sweetwater District and Mater Dei Catholic. Our sports teams emphasize skill development, team work, physical fitness, and above all, sportsmanship all centered in our Catholic faith. We provide student athletes the opportunity to work in a team environment and test their physical skills as well as their mental skills. Our sports facilities, from our football stadium – gymnasium – to our aquatic center are the finest in the conference. Each year, we have graduates who are awarded collegiate athletic scholarships and go on to compete at all levels of NCAA and NAIA colleges and universities. Academics and athletics go hand-in-hand at Mater Dei Catholic. A student must achieve and maintain a 2.0 GPA in order to participate on an athletic team. What Crusaders learn as student-athletes on and off the field of play will follow them on to college, the work force, and the rest of their lives. With 26 athletic teams at Mater Dei Catholic we offer something for everyone. GO CRUSADERS!
