Team members involved in league sports are selected on the basis of skill development sufficient to compete successfully in the Catholic Academy League's interscholastic competitions. A fee payable at the beginning of the season is charged for participation in a sport. Athletic uniforms are purchased by the player and used for the duration of their participation. Orientations for parents involved in specific sports are held at the beginning of each season. The annual Sports Luncheon recognizes both team and individual achievements during the year. Boys and girls in grades 3 to 8 are eligible to participate in the school's Intramural Basketball Program. Participants in league sports (except football, hockey, and lacrosse) are to be covered by the special rider on the school insurance form. For sports not covered by the Student Accident Insurance, the parent is to sign a form stating that the child has private health insurance. For more athletic policy information, please contact the athletic director.
Ancillae-Assumpta Academy wants to ensure that all students who are members of an athletic team are physically capable of participation. All students entering Grades 4 though 8 who wish to participate in interscholastic sports during the school year will be required to have a Sports Preparticipation Physical Examination Form completed and returned to the Health office. In addition, two acknowledgement forms containing information about concussions and sudden cardiac arrest must be signed by both the student and parent and returned to the Health Office. Students will not be able to participate in practice or games until the Health Office has received all the required forms. We are pleased to partner with Body Active, Inc. to offer optional pre-season baseline concussion testing for our athletes in grades 5 to 8.
The Athletic Advisory Committee was established in 2008 so that coaches, parents, the athletic department, and the administration could work together to ensure a successful program that benefits our student athletes. Meetings discuss a variety of topics including: evaluation of existing policies and procedures, calendaring and schedules, coach selection and recruitment policies, communication of player/parent responsibilities, inventory of uniforms and equipment, budget and fees, transportation, facilities use and maintenance, student health and safety precautions, sportsmanship, and programmatic growth.
