Welcome to the Shanley Athletic Club (SAC) website.

Shanley Athletic Club has a long history of helping student athletes in the JPII network.  Our mission statement is “Taking Deacon Athletics to a Higher Level”.  Our volunteer board has provided athletes with support that allows them to do just that. We have been blessed with many volunteers over the years that have shared their time and talents in order to uphold our mission.   We work closely with the Activities department to meet the needs of the Deacon student athletes participating in all sports, not just a few.  


Behind our ability to bring our mission statement to fruition is the generosity of donors like you.  We count on support from businesses and individual memberships throughout the year to help us fund the needs that go above and beyond the JPII budget.  If you haven’t already become a member please consider doing so by clicking on the “Join Now” button.
