St. Dominic Catholic Parish is proud of our Boys Basketball teams who won the Padre Serra championship in 2012 and 2014 and our Girls Basketball team won the championship in 2017.

Track and Field
The Athletic Association is pleased to be able to offer students the opportunity to participate as a member of the St. Dominic Track Team. Being a member of the team is a unique experience.
- Track athletes, both boys and girls, compete on the same team. This setting offers a broader social atmosphere than other sports. Student athletes practice together and compete in the same events. The meet events, however, are run based on gender and grade.
- There are not cuts, tryouts or "A/B" splits.
- Training, competition, and recognition are geared toward individual strengths. Athletes can participate in a variety of events including running (sprints, middle distance, long distance, and relays), jumping (high and long), and throwing (softball, shot put, and discus). Individual times and distances are charted throughout the season to measure progress. Athletes are awarded medals and ribbons for 1st through 8th place at the meets. School records are honored on our track plaque located in the Parish Athletic Facility lobby.
- Outdoor practices and meets enable the athletes to enjoy and cope with Wisconsin's spring weather.
The track season runs from March through May. Parents are required to volunteer to assist with the St. Dominic track meet, volunteer at other meets, coach or assistant coach.
St. Dominic Catholic School participates in the Milwaukee Middle School Tennis League. Students in grades 5-8 who are enrolled in our parish school or our formation program have the opportunity to join the co-ed team and represent St. Dominic in tennis practices, and if they have the ability, to play in a match, and participate in team matches against other middle schools. Depending on the students participating, they may be split between "A" an "B" teams.
Practices begin in April. The season runs April through May.

The St. Dominic Athletic Association is very excited to announce we have partnered with M14 to assist our players with the highest level of youth basketball training. The St. Dominic Knightball Basketball Developmental Program and League is open to children currently enrolled in grades K5-3. This program is designed to have the first 3 weeks professionally trained by M14 trainers who are professional trainers for all ages and skill sets. A 12-1 trainer to player ratio is targeted so that each player receives very focused developmental attention. The first 3 Saturday mornings in March 2024 will deliver 1-hour M14 training sessions. After these sessions are complete, the fun really begins and it’s time to show off the new skills with Saturday morning games. The league will run for 3 Saturday mornings. There will be 2 games per morning per player: play a game, sit a game, and then play a game. Each player will rotate in and out of the game every 4-5 minutes. Teams will consist of 10 players. These games will be officiated by certified refs who will be instructing the players throughout the games to ensure every player has a positive game experience. Coaches and parents are encouraged to remain positive with the kids and put the emphasis on fun! Teams will be created by the league and younger players will be matched up with wristbands to have like-kind talent guarding each other.
Our goal is to make this introduction to basketball a high energy program with music and fun skills targeted to all levels of play. This is a co-ed program.
Registration runs from November through January and the program runs March through April.
The St. Dominic Athletic Association utilizes a formal set of guidelines in the selection of coaches for athletic activities throughout the parish.
