4HG - FOR HIS GLORY
Holy Name of Jesus is proud to be an active participating school in the 4HG program. 4HG was started by former Viking, Matt Birk. We are proud to have hosted a 4HG basketball clinic and to have Matt Birk as a guest at our school. 4HG is a movement to create a healthy sports culture in our Catholic schools. We believe athletics, when done right, serve as an invaluable tool for developing well-rounded children.
