About Us

The Junior Popes is a non-profit organization with the aim to provide competitive playing opportunities for elementary and middle school students. Junior Popes holds a close relationship with Pius XI Catholic High School. This relationship gives Junior Popes participants the chance to work directly with Pius coaches, athletes, and staff to ensure a unique and fulfilling experience.

The Junior Popes will have a football team, boys basketball team, and girls basketball team starting in the summer of 2020. Along with these leagues, the Junior Popes will host training and skills camps dedicated to specific sports. We are a growing organization and want to offer camps, teams, and leagues for all sports present at Pius in the near future! Please let us know your interest by taking this survey. We are excited to join the Pius family and hope to see you at our events! Thanks and GO JUNIOR POPES!




All staff, parents, and athletes of the Junior Popes are a family. This means ensuring the success of our program through time and effort. All parents are required to volunteer some of their time to their child's Junior Popes team. Volunteer positions may include head coach, team manager, treasurer, score board, concessions, etc. Some Junior Popes teams may have a buyout option for parents to utilize instead of a volunteered position.
