Athletics at DePaul Prep

Get Ready For The Return 2020-21

If your student plans to participate in our athletics this year, the following forms must be completed and the following steps must be taken:

student athlete requirements

 DePaul Prep must have an up-to-date IHSA Pre-Participation Examination Form (this is in addition to the State of IL Health Exam/Physical form) and Sport Medicine and Acknowledgement Consent Form on file before team tryouts. The IHSA form must be filled out, signed by 1) a physician, physician's assistant or advanced nurse practitioner, 2) your student, and 3) a parent/guardian. Families will upload this to their Magnus Health profile when appropriate.

DePaul Prep is proud to be an Under Armour school. Our athletes sport Under Armour wear and gear exclusively. 

DePaul Prep is proud to partner with AthletiCo, our official provider of physical therapy and athletic training. 

DePaul Prep is proud to partner with Herff Jones, our official provider of class rings and letterman jackets. 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent cancellations, changes, and guideline updates to sports seasons, the schedules for this coming school year are fluid. We will be updating our schedules on the website as soon as we have contracted contests but this year that is going to be done as it comes to us and not all at once. In a normal school year, you can typically expect most of, if not all, the team schedules to be posted by the start of the school year.

Please continue to check with your head coach for all practice and competition schedules.

This past Monday, the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) changed the metrics used to determine the Mitigation Tiers.  With this shift in metrics, Region 11 (City of Chicago) has moved from Tier 3 Resurgence Mitigations to Tier 2 Resurgence Mitigations.  The move to Tier 2 allows the following:

Low-Risk Sports: May practice and begin competitions.
Medium-Risk Sports: May practice and can conduct intrasquad scrimmages as allowed. 
High-Risk Sports: May begin team workouts with no contact and can not scrimmage.

I want students to have positive experiences and develop lifelong friendships and relationships; friendships and relationships are much more important than wins and losses. When you develop those and close bonds, wins are more likely to come.
