Bishop Amat, Damien, St. Lucy’s, St. Paul, La Salle, Pomona Catholic, Bosco Tech all grouped together in CAA league proposal

The Catholic Athletic Association voted to approve a releaguing proposal for all sports except football that was submitted by Bishop Amat, Bishop Montgomery, Cantwell Sacred Heart, Cathedral, Don Bosco Tech, La
Salle, Mary Star of the Sea, Serra, St. Bernard, Saint Joseph, St. Monica, and St. Paul. Barring lawsuits, the new league approved by the CAA will begin in the 2014-15 cycle. I’m posting only the league that directly affects the San Gabriel Valley area, with Damien, Bishop Amat, St. Lucy’s, La Salle, St. Paul and Pomona Catholic all grouped in the 16-team Co-Ed Association league. The CAA will next vote on a football only proposal.

CO-ED ASSOCIATION A (16 SCHOOLS): Bishop Amat, Bishop Montgomery, Cantwell-Sacred Heart, Cathedral, Damien, Bosco Tech, La Salle, Mary Star of the Sea, Pomona Catholic, Serra, St. Bernard, St. Bonaventure, St. Joseph, St. Lucy’s, St. Monica, St. Paul.

How it works: With 16 teams in the association, it is now up to the association to group teams into League A and League B by sports, taking into consideration geographic proximity and competitive equity. Chances are, Damien/St. Lucy’s, Bishop Amat, Bosco Tech/Pomona Catholic, St. Paul, Cantwell Sacred Heart, La Salle, Cathedral/St. Joseph and Mary Star will be grouped together in most sports because of geography.

    CIF introduced the 30 day sit out rule a couple of years ago and thereby removing the advantage private schools had over public schools regarding athletically motivated transfers. In fact, there is now a disadvantage for them because top athletes can now transfer into a well coached public school at no cost the parents(tuition) and the only penalty is sitting out 30 days.

    This is about Catholic schools being segregated by virtue of their religion.

    The definition of discrimination is: Treating people differently through prejudice; unfair treatment of one person or group, usually because of prejudice about race, ethnicity, age, religion, or gender

    The movie 42 has been a great hit in the box office but the lessons of discrimination falls on deaf ears.

    It is unbelievable that in 2013 we still have prejudice towards a certain group based on religion, alas, the Catholic Athletic Association League.
