Program Directors have leadership over all levels of their sport, from SOR down through SOL and 6th grade.
They are typically the SOR Varsity Head Coach, and oversee player development and discipleship, practice planning, meet/game/tournament selection, and assistant coach training and mentorship. 

If you have a question about any Knights sport, the PD is the person to ask first.
