Dear Guerin Catholic Parents,
In order to be in compliance with Indiana High School Athletic Association (IHSAA) regulations, Guerin Catholic will adhere to the following policy in regard to athletic participation.
To participate in summer training, open gyms, helping with camps, and team workouts through Guerin Catholic athletics, every student-athlete must have an updated IHSAA physical form and have filled out the athletic registration online through GC Gateway. The sports registration must be completed online and the physical must be turned into the Athletic Office no later than June 4, 2018. This is true for all student-athletes, whether you are new to Guerin Catholic, or a returning student. Therefore, if your student-athlete plans to participate in athletics, including utilizing the weight room, updated forms must be on file and the physical must be dated after April 1, 2018. There will be no exceptions.
Registration is available for the 2018-19 Athletic programs through GC Gateway. Please register your child for every sport that they will participate in during the 2018-19 school year.
Payment for these sports will be added to your FACTS accounts on July 2, so the payment can be spread out during the course of the year. If your child decides not to participate in a certain sport that they signed up for, just let us know and that money will be credited to your account. In addition, student athletes will be required to fill out their annual medical information before participating in Athletics. The forms that need to be filled out prior to participation are listed below and can be found on GC Gateway upon login:
1. 2018-2019 Sports Registration
2. 2018-2019 Required Medical Information
3. 2018-2019 OTC Medication and CHIRP Authorization
Payment for all registered sports and the Parent Service fees will be added to your FACTS account on July 1 or upon registration.
If you have questions regarding GC Gateway and registering, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Please keep in mind that in order to register, each student’s fees and tuition must be current for 2017-2018; and the student must be fully enrolled in Guerin Catholic with a current payment plan established for the 2018-2019 school year.
When all of the above steps are completed, the student-athlete may bring in their IHSAA Physical to the GC Athletic Office (Spirit Shop). At that time, each student-athlete will be provided with a “GC Student-Athlete Pass” that they will be required to submit to their coach prior to participating in athletic activity. Students who do not have a GC Student-Athlete Pass will NOT be permitted to participate in any way with the team until they receive one. All coaches will be tracking the receipt of the athletic passes and are aware of the no-exception policy.
The IHSAA is requiring that the most current version of the IHSAA Pre-Participation Physical Evaluation Form (PPE) be used and it may not be altered. You may find it here, on the athletic department website and on the registration page within GC Gateway. We will be enforcing the IHSAA rules as stated.
St. Vincent’s Sports Performance will be holding a few clinics in which athletes can obtain a physical in compliance with the IHSAA. Their first clinic will be held on Tuesday, May 29th at the Clay Terrace Facility from 6:00-9:00 pm. Click here or contact St. Vincent’s Sports Performance for more details.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation!
GO GOLDEN EAGLES!!
