Marist Athletics Return to Play


On July 29, 2020 the IHSA Board altered the athletic schedule for the 2020-2021 school year.  Six sports including boys’ and girls’ cross country, boys’ and girls’ golf, girls’ swimming, and girls’ tennis will begin tryouts on Monday, August 10th.  Fall tryout information can be found via the link at the top.  The modified fall season is scheduled to end on October 24th. Online registration is required in order to participate in any IHSA activity at Marist.  Registration via 8to18 is open for all sports hereFor help with registering, contact Sue Blisk.

Traditional fall sports including football, boys’ soccer, and girls’ volleyball have been tentatively scheduled for the new IHSA spring season (Feb. 15 – May 1).  All IHSA sports season dates have been modified and the seasons are compressed.  The complete modified IHSA athletic schedule can be found via the link at the top  

  • Students will be screened at the start of practice for temperature >100.4F/38C or symptoms of COVID-19 (fevers, chills, cough, muscle aches, headache, sore throat, runny nose, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or loss of taste or smell). 
  • Students must self-monitor for these symptoms prior to arrival at Marist. Any person with symptoms or a positive COVID-19 test, should not participate in practice, competition, or conditioning and should be referred to a physician for evaluation and only return after clearance to do so from a physician. 
  • Marist employees and students are asked to abide by the Chicago Travel Order which took effect July 6. Travelers entering or returning to Chicago from states experiencing a surge in new COVID-19 cases will not be allowed to attend camp and need to quarantine for a 14-day period from the time of last contact within the identified state.
  • Students must be honest about their health, and stay home if they have any symptoms. 

Adhering to these protocols and being honest about your health will ensure that all students continue to play in the coming weeks and months. 

Sports Physicals

Physical exams are required for fall sport participation.  The IHSA physical form can be found here. Participating students must have a physical completed in 2020 on file at Marist before attending tryouts on August 10. Families can bring the physical form to any doctor to be completed. 

Please note that physicals for incoming freshmen count as the necessary sports physical.
