2020-2021 Season Important Updates

Fall Sports Update (November 24, 2020)


Dear Josephinum Student-Athletes and Families, 

Based upon the new Tier 3 Resurgence Mitigations announced on Tuesday, November 17 from Governor Pritzker's Office and the IDPH, Josephinum Academy of the Sacred Heart will be following the guidelines in place. With the guidance from the Governor's office and the IHSA, all winter sport offerings are on a temporary "pause" while these mitigations are in place. This pause will directly impact girls basketball, and all current open gym opportunities. 

Josephinum Academy will follow all IHSA and IDPH guidelines during this pause. Once the pause has been lifted, Josephinum will communicate with the entire student body with detailed information regarding athletic offerings. 

We are still awaiting further guidance from the IHSA regarding the start date for the Girls Basketball season. Once we receive that information we will share it with the entire Josephinum Community. 

Thank you for your support, patience, and flexibility in this situation.

Sports Physicals

Physical exams are required for participation in all 2020/2021 sports.  The IHSA physical form can be found on our main Athletics page. Participating students must have a physical completed in 2020 on file at Josephinum before attending tryouts. 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.

Feel free to email Josephinum Athletic Director at erik.ziolkowski@josephinum.org if you have any questions.
