Brophy welcomes any freshman who would like to participate in the FRESHMAN FOOTBALL PROGRAM. Since there are no cuts, size dictates two divisions within the freshman program — Red division and White division. It is one team, however, that works together to train and support one another as they lay the foundation for a future varsity program.
Freshman tennis begins Monday, Aug. 26. All athletes must have their physical forms turned in before they can participate. Players will catch a bus in front of Loyola Hall at 3 p.m., Monday–Thursday, for the ride to the Phoenix Tennis Center. Practices are 3:15-5:15 p.m. Don't forget your racket!
Brophy has registered with the NASP (National Archery in the Schools Program) and now offers archery as a club sport. The Broncos will join the Xavier Hotshots archery team in practices and will share coaching staffs. The Brophy team requires at least 12 participants and will cap the roster at 24. Athletes can earn varsity and junior varsity letters at the end of the year.
An introduction, orientation and initial tryout/practice is scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 29 at the Ben Avery Archery Range. The season begins in late September and wraps up at the end of February with the state tournament.
Ms. Lisa Fischer, who also coaches at Xavier, will lead Brophy's program. She is a certified NASP basic archery instructor and a certified level 2 USA archery instructor.
BROPHY CREW is a no-cut sport at Brophy and no experience is required. Dues cover everything during the year except uniforms. Crew is a year-round sport but athletes can choose to participate during just the fall or spring semester if they are participating in a second sport.
