SCS Lakers!




REMINDER:  Online Athletic Packets are to be completed when registering each student for a sport.  They must be completed along with the REQUIRED Emergency Form for each child if you have not done so in the past.  This is a school policy.  The Emergency Forms must be completed 1 time per school year.  


Any questions should be directed to our Athletic Director, Kerryn Shaughnessy


The Saint Catharine School Athletic Program offers an exemplary array of sports opportunities for our students.  Every sport is organized to teach both outstanding athletic and life skills in a team-based Christian environment. All academically and physically qualified students are encouraged to participate and/or try out for our school teams.  PLAYING SPORTS IS A PRIVILEGE, NOT A RIGHT.


The information detailed in the Athletics section on the school website, has been compiled to help you and your child understand the responsibilities of a student athlete at Saint Catharine School.  



**Student Physical Forms need to be printed and completed by parents and physicians. Once completed, please be sure to upload with your child's Emergency Medical Form each school year.

Physical Requirements


New Jersey State Law states the primary responsibility for the health of a child rests with the parent/guardian and their family physician or primary health care provider. SCS uses one form for all physicals called the Pre-participation Physical Evaluation that is formulated by the New Jersey Department of Education 2014: Pursuant to P.L.2013 c.71.


Children that require physicals:

  1. Children entering Pre-K, Kindergarten, or transferring to SCS into any other grade.
    This information is due by August 15 or a written note from the physician when the physical will be completed as soon as possible.
  2. All children who wish to try out or participate on any athletic team. 
    Sports physicals are good for only one year and must be submitted on an annual basis. There are three sports seasons (Fall, Winter, Spring). 

No child is permitted to tryout for a sport without a completed physical approved by the nurse and the principal.


N.J. State Immunization Regulations:


  • Immunizations must be up to date according to N.J. State law.
