Saint Kilian Parish School welcomes our student athletes to the athletic program. To be eligible to participate in our sport’s program, the following eligibility requirements must be met by all students:
Students enrolled at Saint Kilian Parish School Grades 3 - 8 are permitted to enroll in the sports program which includes:
Cross Country – Grades 3 - 8
Girl’s Volleyball – Grades 5 - 8
Fall & Spring Soccer –Grades 2 - 8
Basketball – Grades 3 - 8
Cheerleading – Grades 3 - 8 (note: North Pittsburgh Catholic Ironmen cheerleaders range in grades from 2nd to 8th grade)
Football – Grades 3 - 8
The Principal of the school has the authority to not allow a student athlete to participate in practice or games due to circumstances deemed appropriate for this restriction.
If an athlete misses school due to a sickness on the day of a practice or game, the athlete is not permitted to play in that event, whether the practice/game is home or away per the diocesan rules.
Any injury that requires a visit to be seen by a physician (doctor, ER, clinic, wellness center etc) must have a doctor's note to be able to resume practice and play for any sport. The safety of each athlete is and will continue to be the goal of our program.
Student athletes in the Junior Varsity and Varsity level of play must maintain a grade level of C or better to participate in the sports program(s). If the athlete falls below this level of grading, the teacher will advise the Principal and the decision will be passed down to the athlete’s parents and the athlete, then to the Athletic Director and Coach. Reinstatement of the privilege to participate in sports will be given by the Principal.
Student athletes in grades 3 and 4 will follow a similar grading policy for participation in the sports program. If the athlete falls below an acceptable level of grading as determined by the teacher and Principal, the teacher will advise the Principal and the decision will be passed down to athlete’s parents and the athlete, then to the Athletic Director and Coach. Reinstatement of the privilege to participate in sports will be given by the Principal.
Registrations for the sport to be played must be submitted prior to the date due in order to join the program. If registrations are completed after the deadline for processing, the SKPSAA coaches and administration will review and determine how this effect’s the team and the overall program within the diocese. In addition, the diocese will have to allow late registration by their review of the information as SKPSAA is not able to allow roster changes after they are submitted.
All forms must be completed prior to practicing or games, which include the physician’s release forms.
