ParishEXTEND Athletic Academy is a partnership between Athletics and ParishEXTEND with a common goal to offer a comprehensive catalog of sports specific program opportunities dedicated to developing Parish's young athletes.
Participants of these programs are trained according to Parish’s coaching philosophies and methods which will prepare them for participation in junior varsity and varsity athletics. Opportunities will vary by sport and age group but may include weekly classes, private team coaching, skills and coaching clinics, tournaments and more.
We will continue to expand the Athletic Academy as we work with our coaches and community to identify the needs of our young athletes. Spring sessions are listed on each sport's respective page.
