The St. Agnes - Sacred Heart Crusaders Football team consists of a Junior Varsity Team and a Varsity Team.  Boys in 5 & 6 grades play on the JV, and boys in 7 & 8 grades play on the Varsity.  The Crusaders play in the Philadelphia Catholic League - Division I Conference.  We play in the North Division, which is the best in all of CYO.  Philadelphia CYO Football roots run deep, the league has been playing football since 1957.

Our teams consist of members from five Parishes: Our Lady of the Sacred Heart, St. Agnes, St. Isidore, St. John the Baptist,, and St. Maria Goretti.  They are no weight limits like most leagues, so everyone is qualified to play every week.  The  season consists of 8 games, plus playoff games.  CYO teams compete fro the "Parade of Champions" or CYO City Championship.

SASH Crusader football prepares young athletes for High School football better than most programs.  We have a great group of kids who play for us and that is a direct reflection on the families in our five parishes.  Our coaching staff teaches the boys the fundamentals of the game, and pushes them to be at their best come game day.  Every year players come back and attend the Homecoming game, and talk fondly about their past experience playing football for the Crusaders.  Once a Crusader, always  a Crusaders..

Playing football for SASH is an experience like no other.  We teach the boys the core values of Crusader Football - effort, attitude, execution and teamwork.  We also stress to all athletes - respect the game, opponents, officials, coaches, parents, and teammates.
