DOES THE PAROCHIAL ATHLETIC LEAGUE HAVE A PLAN IN PLACE IN CASE OF A COVID19 OUTBREAK WITHIN OUR LEAGUE SCHOOLS?
“The Parochial Athletic League encompasses too large a geographic area to issue a one-size-fits-all response to the coronavirus at this time. The Department of Catholic Schools in the Diocese of Orange has issued statements to the schools indicating their close monitoring of the situation in concert with local health officials and the Centers for Disease Control. Should a mandate ceasing activities be required, the schools within the PAL will be notified immediately. Absent that mandate, decisions on holding after-school sports activities will be left to the individual schools as they know far better than we of the best course in keeping their students and families safe. We will support them in those decisions.”
The CIF-Southern Section that governs our high school sports has issued a similar statement.

A perennial power in the Parochial Athletic League, the athletic program at Saint Jeanne de Lestonnac School, focuses on character building through competitive athletics. Committed to tradition, the school’s Student Learning Expectations, and a powerful Mission Statement, our coaches, who are also Company of Mary educators, expect the highest levels of behavior, enthusiasm, and sportsmanship from all of the student-athletes in every level and sport. As the largest year-long program with hundreds of students participating, success is not measured solely on what the scoreboard shows, end of season records, or championships, but a “team” concept built around Catholic-Christian values.
Saint Jeanne’s offers the opportunity for our fifth through eighth-grade students to participate in football, basketball, volleyball, track, cross-country, and softball. In addition to these opportunities to compete within the sports of the Parochial Athletic League, Saint Jeanne’s provides a non-competitive soccer program for our preschool through second-grade students. This developmental soccer program focuses on the fundamentals of teamwork, health, and sportsmanship while learning the skills of soccer.
Our school is blessed with state of the art facilities. The Field Turf "Field of Dreams" offers two football fields, two softball fields, and a full-size soccer field. We also have an indoor gymnasium with three volleyball and basketball courts as well as an additional softball field that has a full dirt infield, and two outdoor basketball courts.
Saint Jeanne de Lestonnac Lancer pride is an integral part of the legacy of success in athletics on all levels and continues to promote that same success in life and for life.
