St. John Paul II Athletics


Josh Martin - Athletic Director

My family and I joined St. John Paul II parish in 2011.  Prior to joining our parish, we were members of Sacred Heart in Jeffersonville.  During that time, my wife (Missy) and I served as the Youth Ministers from 2003 to early 2008.  Growing up, athletics played a key role shaping who I am as individual, teaching me the value of teamwork, commitment, sportsmanship, and work ethic required to accomplish your goals.  As a youth I grew up going from one sports season to the next playing basketball, football, baseball, swimming, and track.  I was able to continue my involvement in athletics by playing Division III football at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in Terre Haute, Indiana.  From high school on I have coached various sports (softball, baseball, football, basketball, soccer, & volleyball) ranging from 5-year-olds to high school seniors, with the goal of being able to teach those same values I learned as a youth.  I began working with our athletics program as a coach when my daughter, Emmalee, was in kindergarten.  I was invited to join the Athletic Committee in 2014 and recently elected as the Athletic Director.

As Athletic Director, I am committed to building on our great athletics program and feel confident that our Athletic Committee will continue to provide excellent opportunities for our youth.  I would also like to acknowledge that our program would not be the success it is today if it weren't for all of the parents, coaches, and volunteers that have supported us through the years.

I welcome any questions, concerns, or suggestions you may have related to our athletics program. GO KNIGHTS!
