2020-2021 Season Important Updates

Fall Sports Update (July 29, 2020)

Josephinum's traditional fall sport of volleyball has been tentatively rescheduled for the new IHSA spring season (Feb. 15 – May 1).  All IHSA sports season dates have been modified and the seasons are compressed. 

View the IHSA "Return to Sports" update with the complete modified IHSA athletic schedule.

When sports play begins, Josephinum will carry out the following:

  • Students will be screened at the start of practice for temperature >100.4F/38C or symptoms of COVID-19 (fevers, chills, cough, muscle aches, headache, sore throat, runny nose, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or loss of taste or smell).
  • Students must self-monitor for these symptoms prior to arrival at Josephinum. Any person with symptoms or a positive COVID-19 test, should not participate in practice, competition, or conditioning and should be referred to a physician for evaluation and only return after clearance to do so from a physician.
  • Josephinum employees and students are asked to abide by the Chicago Travel Order which took effect July 6. Travelers entering or returning to Chicago from states experiencing a surge in new COVID-19 cases will not be allowed to attend open gyms, practices, or games and need to quarantine for a 14-day period from the time of last contact within the identified state.
  • Students must be honest about their health, and stay home if they have any symptoms.

Adhering to these protocols and being honest about your health will ensure that all students continue to play in the coming weeks and months.

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.
