I am pleased to announce that Mr. Dennis Carey will be assuming the responsibilities as the new Athletic Director at St. Rose High School. Mr. Carey's official title will be Vice Principal for Athletics and Student Affairs. Mr. Carey will be replacing former Athletic Director Mr. Daniel White, who recently left St. Rose after accepting a teaching position at a local school district.
At St. Rose we encourage our athletes to compete with character, sportsmanship and passion.
The Athletic Department, in conjunction with the school’s philosophy, strives to develop well-rounded students. Sports play an integral part in the educational program at St. Rose. The challenges of competing, whether on a team or individual sport, create learning experiences for all student-athletes.
We offer a variety of male and female sports for all three seasons. Many of our teams have at least a Varsity and JV level and some have a freshmen level.

In one season, you are limited to one strenuous sport. According to the NJSIAA Section 2 Strenuous Sports
A player on an interscholastic athletic team shall participate in only one strenuous high school sport at a time during the regular high school sports season. A player may drop one high school sport to participate in another, but he/she may not return to a sport from which he/she withdrew. The strenuous sports are: Baseball, Basketball, Cross-Country, Diving, Fencing, Field Hockey, Football, Gymnastics, Ice Hockey, Lacrosse, Skiing, Soccer, Softball, Swimming, Tennis, Spring Track, Winter Track, Volleyball, and Wrestling.
- CL 1 Bowling and Golf are not considered strenuous sports.
- CL 2 Rule 2, Section 2, Strenuous Sports, will mean a student concluding a season in one sport will not be able to participate in another sport regardless of the fact that the athlete would be able to meet the six (6) day practice rule.
No, most teams do not make cuts from the program as a whole. Teams will be decided and players will be placed on either Varsity, JV or Freshmen based on ability. In some cases teams may need to make cuts from the program if there are an abundance of athletes trying out for one sport, but that is usually rare. However, it can happen from time to time and from team to team.
