Jeff Cook, CHA Athletic Director

Please note deadlines and provide the required athletic forms to the CHA Health Services Office on a timely basis. As a recognized school of the State of Illinois, and an approved school of the Illinois High School Association (IHSA), all health requirements must be followed.

Required Athletic Forms (Grades 6-12)
Students in grades 6-8 may participate in:

Co-Ed Soccer
Girls’ Volleyball
Boys’ & Girls’ Basketball
Boys’ Volleyball
Co-Ed Track

Thanks to our co-op program, upper school students may participate in most IHSA sports. All students participating in a sport must have a physical exam on file before practice/try-outs begin.  Students may use either of these physical exam forms:

IL Physical Exam
IHSA Pre-Participation Physical Exam

All physical exams must be current during a sports season (within 13 months of date of exam). A summer exam is recommended for year-long eligibility. Upper school students should return all required sports physicals and IHSA Consent forms to the CHA Office (who will then forward copies to CLA).
