Athletics & Activities

We believe athletics and extracurriculars play an important role in our student’s high school experience, and we encourage students to get involved. We look forward to offering students over 200 extracurricular activities across the district this school year while also following guidance to ensure the heath and safety of our students and staff.

Masking
The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) All-Sports Policy will require masks to be worn for all indoor IHSA athletic events regardless of an individual’s vaccination status. This mask directive for indoor athletic events applies to student-athletes, coaches, officials, game personnel, and fans.
 

Masks are optional outdoors for sports, extracurricular activities and events.This masking mandate applies to all IHSA fall sport practices and contests that are conducted indoors. Swimmers and divers do not have to wear masks while competing, but must adhere at all other times. The masking directive also applies to any winter or spring IHSA sports that may be conducting open gyms, general conditioning, or weightlifting indoors.
