1/20/2021: Hilltopper Athletic Update

Hilltopper Athletic Update


As of January 19, 2021, Region 8 (which includes Kane and DuPage Counties) moved to Tier 2 Status.  This change allows for the resumption of winter sports which now include Competitive Cheer, Competitive Dance, Girls Gymnastics, Boys Swimming, Bowling, and Badminton.  These sports are all considered low risk, and competition schedules will be posted as we gather more information in the coming days.  Practices will begin Monday January 25th. Student athletes registered on PowerSchool or who started practices in November will be notified by their coach. Please reach out to the Head Coach of each program for updates.


Boys and Girls Basketball may also resume practices, but are only allowed no contact practices and training at this time.  These workouts will also begin the week of January 25th.  We are hopeful that our region may progress in the future to allow for reduced mitigations.  Please reach out to the Coach Opoka or Coach Faulkner with any questions.


We look forward to providing contact days in the near future for all other sports and will communicate as we receive further communication from the IHSA and IDPH.  Please make sure that your current athletic physical is updated within the last 395 days.  To submit an updated physical, take a photo (of all sides) or scan and email to ellen_reifel@glenbard.org.
