Dallas Parochial League

Saint Pius X Catholic School participates in the Dallas Parochial League (DPL), the athletic organization serving the Catholic schools in the Diocese of Dallas. This organization sets policy and acts as an overall coordinator of the various sporting competitions it offers. DPL operates under the direction of the Diocese of Dallas Elementary Principal's Association.  DPL’s philosophy is the athletic department of a parochial school system should be a vital, contributing part of the total education system. It should be a working laboratory, where skills of being a team should be experienced. The objective of this league is to provide athletic programs with the emphasis on Christian principles and good sportsmanship at the amateur level and to organize and govern competition between teams representing schools of the organization.  The DPL boys and girls participate in the following sports: Football, Basketball, Baseball, Softball, Volleyball, Cheerleading (7th & 8th grade girls), Pep Squad (4th-6th grade girls), Tennis, Cross Country, Soccer (7th & 8th grader girls & boys only), Swimming, and Track and Field.
