The Christopher Dock coaching staff, in partnership with parents, seeks to develop the God-given abilities of each student-athlete in preparation for successful team experiences. This educational arena will be used to mold and perfect enduring life values that are equal to or beyond our athletic success.  Our goal is to provide a positive environment where appropriate goals, disciplined effort, good teaching, open  communication, and fun are central to a sport experience at Dock.

Dock has been a member of the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association (PIAA) and Bicentennial Athletic League (BAL) from 1976 to the present.  In addition, we are a part of PIAA District I, which serves as our local PIAA governing body and organizes post-season District I playoffs.  These playoffs determine both the individuals and teams that qualify to move on to PIAA State Championships.

Erik Kratz was honored with Christopher Dock’s Outstanding Athletic Achievement Award for a Professional Athlete. Kratz received the award during Dock’s Alumni of the Year awards presentation on Friday, October 19, 2012, which was part of the school’s Homecoming Weekend.

Kratz is the first Dock graduate to receive the award, and was selected on the basis of advancing to the major leagues, as well as playing in a number of major league games worthy of the honor. “As many of you know, Erik became an everyday catcher for the Phillies this past August, and took that opportunity to show his God-given athletic ability as a player,” said Dock Athletic

Director Tim Ehst, who made the presentation. “His athletic ability was shown through being one of the few major league catchers to throw out runners from his knees, but also by stepping up with key hits that led to several Phillies victories during their run to make a playoff spot this past season.

At Dock we have been proud to call Erik one of our own, not only for his athletic prowess, but also for the character and life values he lives by.” Kratz was presented a framed Phillies jersey which will be a part of a display in Dock’s Longacre Center Athletic Hall of Honors. In addition to the Outstanding Athletic Achievement Award, the 1998 grad was also named one of Dock’s Young Alum of the Year.

United States Field Hockey Olympian Jesse Gey was honored with Christopher Dock’s Outstanding Athletic Achievement Award during a chapel program on Wednesday, December 5.

Gey, who graduated from Dock in 2004, shared her story of challenge and Christian faith on the road to her 2008 Beijing Summer Olympic experience. She encouraged students to find what they are passionate about in life and work hard to be the best at what they feel drawn to do.

The first Dock graduate to receive this award as an Olympian, Gey was selected on the basis of her participation in the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, and for her part in elevating U.S. field hockey status on the world stage by contributing to a team that won an Olympic bid for the first time since 1988. In addition, she has competed on five U.S. National teams since graduating from the University of North Carolina in 2008.

“Dock is proud to call Jesse one of our own, not only for her athletic achievements on the world stage, but also for the values she lives by,” said Athletic Director Tim Ehst, who made the award presentation. Gey’s award includes a framed Olympic jersey which will be displayed in Dock’s Longacre Center Athletic Hall of Honors.
