December 29, 2021- Beginning January 3, 2022, the City of Chicago requires all individuals entering establishments where food or beverages are served to be vaccinated. This mandate does not apply to school lunch or snack time, but does apply to sporting events. In order to comply with this mandate and maintain the ability to offer athletic competitions safely, all schools within the archdiocese must suspend the operation of concession stands at athletic events until further notice.
January 10, 2022- Our top priority is maintaining an in-person learning environment for our students. Because of this and as an extra precaution to minimize the risk of team quarantines, anyone who tests positive for COVID-19 may not participate in athletic practices/competitions or extracurriculars for 10 days. We understand that the at-home isolation period is 5 days and that they may return to school on day 6 if asymptomatic, but for purposes of team play or any school-organized extracurricular activities (clubs, band, etc.), they must refrain for the full 10 days.
Students returning from quarantine (recent close contacts)
Asymptomatic close contacts may participate in extracurricular activities days 6 through 10 post-exposure, if they have a recent negative test.
- The negative test must have been taken on or after day 5, and the child may not participate in extracurricular activities while waiting for the test results.
- A negative test is required only for participation in extracurricular activities on days 6 through 10. It is not required to return to school.
- Both PCR or rapid tests are allowable.
Students who have not obtained a negative test on or after day 5 of exposure may not participate in athletics or extracurricular activities until after 10 days from the date of exposure.
January 4, 2022-
In mid-December 2021, CK Athletics changed the Little Tykes start date to January 15, 2022. This decision was made prior to the surge of Covid-19 cases seen in our neighborhood and surrounding communities. Out of an abundance of caution, CK Athletics made the difficult but thoughtful decision to begin play on February 5, 2022 for 8 consecutive Saturdays ending March 26, 2022
. CK Athletics will continue to monitor and follow the guidance of the Archdiocese and will pass along updates/further changes as they become available.
Understandably, delaying the season may negatively impact family schedules. For this reason, we are offering an opportunity to cancel existing registrations and request a refund with no penalty. Families seeking a refund must email email@example.com
. Provide family contact information along with the name(s) of the player(s) involved in the body of the email.
|As a reminder, all participants and spectators of indoor sporting events must wear masks at all times.
Christ the King encourages students to develop their faith, their minds, and their bodies. CK Athletics is concerned with the development of the WHOLE person—the religious, moral, social and academic dimensions as well as physical development. CK offers many athletic options to students in Kindergarten through eighth grade.
Through participation in CK Athletic Programs, students may develop life-long skills and positive values. These values include leadership, healthful living habits, self-discipline, integrity, teamwork, respect for rules and regulations, and the ability to participate with dignity and grace.
Student participants will learn the fundamentals of each sport and be given the opportunity to develop strong, healthy and disciplined minds and bodies. Participants will also develop a sense of good sportsmanship, fair play and team spirit.

The Athletic Board
The Christ the King Athletic Board’s primary objective is to provide an opportunity for its student athletes to learn and participate in soccer, basketball, football, volleyball and golf. The objective will be met by providing a combined; competitive and instructional sports program as an extension of the Christ the King school academic program. Board meetings are open to all parents/guardians of student athletes. Monthly meetings are held on the 3rd Monday of the month, subject to change, at 7:00pm in the school library, unless otherwise advertised.
