Holy Spirit Parish School offers an array of extra-curricular sports to its students. For grades 1st through 4th, a Little Dribblers program is offered to both boys and girls to help instruct and develop the basketball skills necessary for participation in the PAL (Parochial Athletic League) basketball league offered by the Diocese of Sacramento for grades 5th-8th.

Once a student reaches the fifth grade, both boys and girls are eligible to participate in Diocese of Sacramento sponsored sports. Students participate on various teams that compete in the PAL against other member schools. 5th and 6th graders play in the JV division. The JV division incorporates players from both classes to participate in either the "competitive" team or the "Rec" team. Each player will try-out to determine the team he or she will be eligible for. 7th and 8th graders also have the same process to determine the status as a "competitive" or "Rec" participant in the Varsity division.

Holy Spirit offers girls volleyball and boys flag football during the fall season. Basketball is offered during the winter season. The athletic season rounds off in the spring with golf and track. On some occasions, a boys volleyball team is fielded. This later sport is determined by the number of interested athletes. Although the PAL offers a girls flag football season, Holy Spirit has never had enough interested parties to field this team.
