Archbishop McNicholas High School strives to foster the development of strong Christian values through our athletic programs which are highly respected and bring excitement and spirit to our campus.

McNicholas is a member of the GCL Coed Division which continues to be recognized as one of the strongest leagues in the state of Ohio.

As a member in good standing of the Ohio High School Athletic Association, McNicholas continues to compete in Division II or III for state tournaments.  We sponsor 42 teams/squads in 23 sports. Approximately 65% of our students participated in one or more of our sports programs last year.


Per the Ohio High School Athletic Association and McNicholas High School all student athletes must complete the following prior to the first day of practice/tryouts:

Fees for Athletics for 2013-2014 school year

  • Participation fees are per athlete: $200 first sport, $150 each additional sport, with a $650 family max per year.
  • Athletic Booster fees: $50 per family per year.
  • All fees must be paid in order to participate in practice/tryouts unless payment arrangements have been made through the Athletic Office. This is a change from last year. In the event the student does not make a team, the fee will be returned.
