Athletic Association

Athletic Association

This association was formed for the purpose of providing adult-supervised Catholic education in athletics for the youth of St. Anselm Parish. The volunteer soccer program is always in need of coaches, assistant coaches, team parents, sponsors, and general helping hands.

Men, women, and teens are encouraged to help make this program flourish. Ongoing needs include individuals to help with registration, field management, field care, and scheduling umpires and referees.
