All athletics registrations and fees must be completed online.
The Saint James Athletic Program teaches and encourages Christian values as it promotes physical development, athletic skill, team camaraderie, good sportsmanship, and school spirit.
Any student in grades 5-8 may participate in SJS athletics provided the online registration is completed and there is an annual sports physical on file in the school office prior to first practice for the sport. As required by the Archdiocese of Chicago, students who participate in their school’s athletic program will not be allowed to participate (no practices, games, meets, etc.) without the complete and submitted physical.
