St. Catharine School students participate in a variety of sports that enhance their curriculum, nurture a Christian attitude and promote school spirit.
All students must be in good academic standing to participate and try out for a sport.
New Jersey State Law states the primary responsibility for the health of a child rests with the parent/guardian and their family physician or primary health care provider. SCS uses one form for all physicals called the Pre-participation Physical Evaluation that is formulated by the New Jersey Department of Education 2014: Pursuant to P.L.2013 c.71.
Children that require physicals:
1. Children entering Pre-K, Kindergarten, or transferring to SCS into any other grade.
This information is due by August 15 or a written note from the physician when the physical will be completed as soon as possible.
2. All children who wish to try out or participate on any athletic team.
Sports physicals are good for only one year and must be submitted on an annual basis. There are three sports seasons (Fall, Winter, Spring).
No child is permitted to tryout for a sport without a completed physical approved by the nurse and the principal.
