Welcome to the home of Lancaster Catholic Crusaders Athletic Department!

Here you will find all the information you will need for the upcoming sports seasons including, important announcements, necessary paperwork, team schedules and other happenings dealing with Crusaders' athletics.


SEASON PASS - Due to the uncertainty of what restrictions will be in place for fall sports, we WILL NOT be selling season tickets at this time.  If we are limited in the amount of fans that can attend any sporting events, then game tickets will be sold to meet the capacity for that game only.  If there are no restrictions, then we will offer season tickets again.

These hours may be in the concession, ticket sales or other game help areas. Hours that are for individual teams do not count toward these hours.
 
Sports Contact Information Form - 
The athletic office would like to have a data base of all athletes at the High School and all Partner Schools.  This will allow us to know who is interested in participating in athletic programs run by Lancaster Catholic and will also give us a data base of those participating in any youth sport.  This will allows us to send information directly to families involved regarding upcoming registration, camps or other events.
 
This information will be passed along to the specific Director for each sport.  You may still have to register for programs that are not run by Lancaster Catholic High School.
