SportsLeader: Virtue = Strength

"Add to your faith, virtue...." 2Peter 1:5

In 2017 John Carroll Athletics Director, Ronald Steele and Sister Margaret Andrews worked together to bring a new Catholic virtues based program to Cavalier student-athletes.  SportsLeader: Virtue=Strength has grown to be one of the most popular and impactful organizations on the John Carroll campus and currently directly reaches all John Carroll student-athletes and their families. 


The SportsLeader: Virtue=Strength Program seeks to develop Catholic-Christian values & virtues in our student-athletes through building community and through service (to our school community and our greater community).  Additionally, SportsLeader recognizes that sports, and the coach in particular, plays a pivotal role in the virtuous development of young people. 


There are three pillars of SportsLeader: Virtue=Strength
