As one of the ministries at St. Spyridon, the athletics program has one simple goal: to build relationships amongst Orthodox Christians that last a lifetime. This relationship also includes a strong bond with the Church and the almighty Jesus Christ. The theme of building relationships is one that is always stressed upon during practice and while competing. The Athletics Program offers two ways for our St. Spyridon youth, ages five to eighteen, to participate. The fall and winter basketball programs allow our youth to participate in the Metropolis of Chicago Basketball League. The spring focuses on practicing and participating in the Metropolis of Chicago Junior Olympics, hosted by St. Constantine & Helen Church of Palos Hills, IL over Memorial Day weekend.
