Winter Tryouts 2020

Winter Sports
All IHSA sports season dates have been modified and the seasons are compressed.
  • Students will be screened at the start of practice for temperature >100.4F/38C or symptoms of COVID-19 (fevers, chills, cough, muscle aches, headache, sore throat, runny nose, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or loss of taste or smell).
  • Students must self-monitor for these symptoms prior to arrival at JCP. Any person with symptoms or a positive COVID-19 test, should not participate in practice, competition, or conditioning and should be referred to a physician for evaluation and only return after clearance to do so from a physician.
  • CPS employees and students are asked to abide by the Chicago Travel Order which took effect July 6. Travelers entering or returning to Chicago from states experiencing a surge in new COVID-19 cases will not be allowed to attend camp and need to quarantine for a 14-day period from the time of last contact within the identified state.
  • Students must be honest about their health and stay home if they have any symptoms.
Adhering to these protocols and being honest about your health will ensure that all students continue to play in the coming weeks and months.
Sports Physicals & Player Record Packets
Physical exams are required for fall sports participation. In addition, each student-athlete is required to have a Player Packet on file. The IHSA physical form can be found here. Participating students must have a physical completed in 2020 on file at JCP before attending tryouts. Families can bring the physical form to any doctor to be completed.
These forms must be completed, signed, and uploaded using the link below.

Please note that physicals for incoming freshmen count as the necessary sports physical.
Feel free to email Jones Athletic Director Frank Griseto if you have any questions.
