Upcoming Sports Tryouts

As a reminder, the IHSA has changed many of the start and end dates for our remaining sports.  You can find them HERE.  


Next week, Boys Soccer and Football will begin.  To practice, you must have an updated physical on file (last 13 months) AND be registered on 8 to 18.  You can send your physical to Ms. Peggy Howard (marhow@d219.org) and directions to register on 8 to 18 are HERE.


Below are the initial practice dates and times for Boys Soccer and Football.  Student Athletes should check in 15 minutes prior to practice.  They should have their own water bottle and bring warm clothes.

News and Announcements

Winter Sports Resumption (Jan. 2021)



On Monday, January 18th, Governor Pritzker and the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) lifted the Tier 3 Mitigations in Region 10, which had paused our Winter Sports.  As a result, we will resume all low-risk Winter Sports beginning on Thursday, January 21st  (Girls Badminton, Girls & Boys Bowling, Girls Gymnastics, Boys Swim & Dive, Cheer, and Dance)



District 219 Athletic Departments will continue to follow IDPH and IHSA Guidelines as our Winter Sports resume.  It is imperative that all student-athletes communicate any Covid-19 symptoms to their coaches before attending any practices.  Student-athletes must also be registered on the 8 to 18 website and have a current physical (conducted in the last 13 months) in order to participate in Winter Sports.



As a reminder, here are the Athletic COVID Safety Protocols for our Winter Sports.



Within the next two weeks, the IHSA will provide start and end dates for all sports that have yet to participate, as well as important guidelines for “contact days” (similar to this Fall).  As we finalize our revised competition schedules for Winter Sports, we will begin to explore options for contact days for our student-athletes beginning in February.  We will communicate information to student-athletes and families as it becomes available.  


As a reminder, please make sure you are registered for your specific sport HERE.  You can also find a list of all Head Coaches and their contact information HERE.


If you have any questions, please contact the Head Coach of each sport or the Athletic Directors (emails listed below).
