Virtual Athletic Parent Meeting 2021/2022

Sports Physical

All students who wish to participate in any sport must have an updated physical turned in to the school office BEFORE participating in any practices or games. Reminder: Physicals are valid for 395 days. If you are unsure if your student requires an updated physical, please contact the Academy Office.

Athletic Agreement Signature Form

All parents and students must review the Student-Parent Athletic Handbook and the Illinois Sports Safety Guidelines.

The Athletic Agreement Signature form shown below must be completed by the first practice of the sport your student wants to participate. An agreement need only be signed once per year even if students participate in multiple sports.

Athletic Participation Fee

In the Fall of 2019, we had announced we would be requiring a $50 participation fee to help offset the deficit of athletics. Due to COVID and the many frustrations and restrictions of 20/21 school year, we did not implement the fees as planned and we were unable to host the traditional fundraisers to support our athletic program.

Beginning with the 21/22 school year, a $25 athletic fee will be required to participate. This fee will be due before the first game of the sport your student wants to participate. This fee is assessed per student, per sport for the first two sports he/she participates annually ($50 maximum per year). If a student participates in three or more sports annually, no additional fees are required. If a student is participating in a co-op sport that is not hosted by Calvary Academy and the host school is charging an athletic fee, the student will instead be required to pay the fees as stipulated by the host school. Fees paid to other host schools are not included in the annual $50 maximum fees to Calvary Academy. 


Coaches will use the app GroupMe to communicate announcements and important information. We will use your cell phone numbers that are listed on FACTS to add you to the group. Please make sure that information is updated on FACTS and make sure to download the app. Having your child participate in a sport always requires a certain degree of flexibility. GroupMe will be an important tool for the coaches to communicate changes or updates with you.


It’s extremely important this year for parents to make sure their child gets picked up on time after practice or a game. We have to clean and sanitize the gym area and cannot have multiple groups in one space. Since we all share one gym, it will take a great deal of cooperation to make this work. Please help us out by making sure your child is picked up on time! 


At this time, Illinois is in Phase 5 and there are no restrictions on spectators. Fans will be allowed at all venues. We will communicate changes when needed.
