Spring sports are permitted to begin practice on Monday, March 15 (subject to change), and the GRACEAC spring sports calendar typically ends before Memorial Day weekend. Parents can register for GRACEAC spring sports at the following link: https://go.teamsnap.com/forms/256711

- Athletic Eligibility Form

- Concussion Awareness
- Concussion Training Link
- Emergency Contact Sheet
- $60.00 Check made out to Corpus Christi Catholic Schools Athletic Department
Corpus Christi belongs to Grand Rapids Area Catholic Elementary Athletic Council (GRACEAC). The school athletic director attends all GRACEAC meetings. Information regarding GRACEAC and the sports schedules can be found on their website – www.graceac.com. Students in grades 5-8 are encouraged to sign up! Corpus Christi’s “no-cut” policy gives all athletes an opportunity to improve their skills and contribute to their team.
The GRACEAC requires each student-athlete wishing to participate in a sport to have a sports physical or wavier on file at school prior to the first practice with any team and dated no earlier than April 15 of the prior school year. No student-athlete will be allowed to practice until this form is on file – no exceptions.
All students are expected to put forth their academic best in all subject areas just as they are expected to put forth their athletic best in all athletic areas. Throughout all athletic sports seasons, student-athletes are expected to be able to answer yes to the following three questions. If a student, parent/guardian, teacher, or administration fails to respond “yes” to either question – ineligibility may result.
- Have you turned in all of your homework assignments on time and completed to the best of your ability?
- Are you giving 100 % effort in your classes, in regard to your studies, homework, and tests?
- Are you showing respect to teachers, classmates, fellow team members, etc?
The student-athlete will maintain good academic standing in the opinion of his/her teachers as well as positive school behavior. The player’s academic performance and behavior will be reviewed on a weekly basis. The Athletic Director will notify the parent(s) in writing if the player received a warning or ineligible rating from any one teacher. If a student-athlete receives two or more warnings in one week or a warning from the same teacher for two consecutive weeks, the player will be ineligible to participate in that review period. If a player is ineligible twice, the student-athlete will be removed from the team.
Uniforms & Fees
Every athletic team is provided a Corpus Christi uniform. The uniform varies depending upon the sport. At the conclusion of the sports season, it is your responsibility to return a clean uniform. Failure to do this will result in a replacement fee.
We strive to offer a quality athletic experience for your son/daughter. The participation fee is $60.00 per student, per sport for the coming year.
