Any student planning on trying out for a winter sport (boys and girls basketball, boys and girls bowling, dance, cheerleading, or wrestling) must register online prior to participating in any practice or tryout (see below for each sport’s start date). If your child plans to play a spring sport too, please register him/her for that sport at this time as well. Click here to register now. Click here for registration instructions.

Additionally, all winter student-athletes and a parent/guardian are required to attend the Winter Sports Orientation Night on Wed, November 7th in the cafeteria. The night will begin promptly at 7 pm, so please arrive early to get signed in and seated. We are pleased to welcome Mr. Brad Leshinske M.S. CSCS, owner of Primetime Sports Performance and the new Director of Sports Performance at St. Laurence as our guest speaker. Brad will be talking about the importance of strength training and the value his team adds to the athletic department.

Any winter student-athlete who is not in attendance for the meeting with a parent/guardian will be unable to practice or play until the meeting videos are viewed and you are cleared by the AD. Please contact the athletic office prior to the meeting at 708-458-6900 x246 if you absolutely cannot make the meeting.
