News and Announcements
IHSA Update & Registration Information
In an exciting turn of events, the IHSA and IDPH have announced the return of high school athletics. We still have many details to work through; however, we wanted to provide you with an update at this time so you can begin planning. Please review the information and links below and contact our athletic office at 847-532-6150 or your head coach with any questions.
We must all continue to do our part in lowering the COVID-19 positivity rate in our area. Our staff has been trained and we will continue to take every precaution to ensure the health and safety of our student athletes. All athletes must be in a mask at all times when indoors and should not attend a team event if they are experiencing any COVID symptoms or if they have been in direct contact with someone who has tested positive. We must do our part!
GO GOLDEN EAGLES!
Updated IHSA Calendar (includes Head Coach contact information)
Registration: When registering for an official IHSA sport season, registration must be completed on our website: https://il.8to18.com/jacobs Detailed information on this process can be found here: Registration Information Registrations must be completed and a current physical on file with the Athletic Department before an athlete is allowed to participate in an official IHSA sport season.
If students are interested in participating in off-season contact days or our strength and conditioning program, they must complete a separate registration here: Contact Days/Fitness Center Registration. Please note that space is limited in the fitness center and many spots are already full.
Student Participation in Overlapping Sports:
We realize that the new athletic seasons do overlap. Our athletic department is committed to fostering and promoting multisport athletes. Please review the following guidance.
- Students may participate in two sports at the same time.
- Coaches will work collaboratively to allow this to happen in the best interest of the student-athlete.
- If a student quits a sport currently in progress to join his/her next sport, that student will be ineligible for their second sport until that initial sport finishes.
- Overlapping sports will try to schedule where students can participate in both without conflict if possible.
Team Schedules: Games and competition schedules will be finalized in the coming days and communicated by our head coaches. Schedules will also be updated here: https://il.8to18.com/jacobs
Special Olympics: We are awaiting final guidance on Special Olympics and working through details but we hope to provide an update soon.
