An initiative to strengthen our coaching and student-athletes with the values and skills gained through competition, so that every Dragon leaves O’Dowd equipped to grow into their best selves.
Our Athletics Department is offering weekly and bi-weekly workshops designed to build and nourish our student-athletes’ minds and spirits. Focused on topics of leadership, faith, identity and character, these workshops will prepare our student-athletes to face competition and struggle in new ways. Every facet of this program is built around our charism, from Academic Excellence to Joy. We are proud to wed the power of our charism with the power of athletics, to fuel not just individual athletes and teams, but the O’Dowd community as a whole. Read more »

Oct 4, 6-8pm - Unity through Community. Required for all Fall Student-Athletes and Coaches
All Fall sport athletes will meet on the quad to enjoy pizza and then participate in our first Advanced Athletics workshop of the year. We will come together and hear from a guest speaker who speaks on community and unity- what it means to come together through sport and team connection, especially after the challenges of COVID. Student-athletes and coaches will then engage in meaningful conversation in break out sessions facilitated by SALT members (student-athlete leadership team).
