We have been informed that we will have protocols for opening the 21-22 school year at the beginning of August. The Archdiocese Task Force will be waiting for the most up to date information from the CDC, the IDPH and other local health agencies to make these decisions. At that time, we will meet to decide how we will implement these up-to-date guidelines at SFX. Our families will then be informed.  

Planning for the resumption of SFX athletic activities entails monitoring the safety guidelines from state and local health officials and the Archdiocese of Chicago. We will continue to implement the guidelines that we are given and evaluate how they will affect our sports program including, but not limited to guidelines relating to mask wearing, temperature checks, limitations on spectators, cleaning procedures, and quarantine protocols.

We could not offer these programs to our students without the continued support of our parent volunteers. You make it all possible by the generous donation of your time and talents! Be aware that there may be an increase in need for parent volunteers this year to help with screening or cleaning protocols that may be necessary. All volunteers for the athletic programs are required to complete the school Virtus training, a concussion training course and be trained on any Covid 19 protocols that will need to be implemented.

Annual Sports physicals, concussion forms and waivers will need to be submitted in paper form. Links to the required athletic forms and documents can be found below.


Welcome to St. Francis Xavier School Athletics!  Our students and families enjoy an incredibly exciting athletic experience here at St. Francis Xavier School.The participation rate in our “no-cut” programs is at an outstanding 98%!  Thanks to our Athletic Director Tammy Bauer and an army of volunteer parent coaches, our Athletic Program embodies good sportsmanship while enjoying varied levels of competition.

Students in good standing may choose to participate in our Interscholastic Athletic Program from 5th grade* through 8th grade.

* The fifth grade program is an instructional program.
