In addition to the many clubs and activities that St. Thomas the Apostle School offers, basketball and cheerleading are also available to our students in the third, fourth and fifth grades.


Our third grade team is co-ed and serves as an instructional league for players who are new to the sport. Team practices are held throughout the month of February each year.  Registration information is provided through the school’s weekly emails. Stay tuned for information on the 2019-20 Third Grade Basketball Season

Our fourth and fifth grade teams are single sex, and all students in those grades are welcome to join in the fun!  Teams participate in competition from November- February with other teams from Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Hartford. Please click here to register your child to participate in one of the teams.


Our cheerleading squad welcomes all third, fourth and fifth grade students to join them as leaders of school spirit at STA! The squad performs at our annual Pep Rally in October and attends basketball games during the season.  They also participate in CheerFest, an annual cheerleading competition held in Connecticut. Parents should check their weekly email for registration information.


All teams, players and coaches participating in basketball and cheerleading must follow our Athletic Guidelines.
