Creighton Prep has an athletic tradition that is unequaled in the state of Nebraska. The many successes on the field of play are made even more significant because of the unique role that athletics plays at Jesuit high schools. The rich history of athletics at Creighton Prep is the result of a commitment to the Ignatian values that are found in the profile of the Graduate at Graduation and in doing so, engage student-athletes fully in mind, body and heart.
Student-athletes, coaches and parents are called upon to work together in a true value of sportsmanship to assist in creating an environment in which those Ignatian values can be revealed, tested and proven relevant to the entire school community. Athletics has had an important role in ensuring the school's mission of "building men for others" is met.
Prep offers 10 NSAA sports throughout the school year. In addition, Prep currently has four club sports and a comprehensive intramural program. Prep also has a full-time strength and conditioning coach to teach and monitor the students in the weight room. Off-season and in-season conditioning are important for young athletes to prepare them for competition. Many sports offer freshman teams, while others have a no-cut policy. All of this adds up to plenty of opportunity for Prep students to get involved in a club or sport.
