General Athletis Information

Please return your completed athletic forms to the CHA Health Services Office on a timely basis.

Required Forms for Athletics (Grades 6-12)

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).
