Winter Tryout Information

You must have a current IHSA physical, the on-line athletic forms ( under athletics tab) and the CPS Player Packet submitted in order to tryout or participate in any athletic capacity.  Here are the things that you must have on your physical.
  • A "YES" on whether or not you are able to participate.  
  • A clear examination date.
    • Your physical is active for 13 months.  For example, if your physical date is 8/15/2017, it will allow you to participate until 9/15/2018.  
    • If you have physical from last year that will expire during your season, please make a doctor's appointment now in order ensure you will not have an issue with participation due to an expired physical
  • A doctor's, physician's assistant, or nurse practitioner's signature or stamp.
Without all of these clearly stated on your physical, the athletic department will be unable to clear you for tryouts or athletic participation.  Below is the link to a blank IHSA physical.  A standard physical may be used, but the same criteria must be met.  The athletic department suggests an IHSA physical for athletic participation.

Wednesday , February 22, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. 
Lane Tech College Prep - Auditorium
What is Recruiting Realities?

A presentation by Jack Renkens to coaches, counselors, student-athlete and their families that runs approximately 50 minutes. Jack has been assisting parents and student athletes for more than 30+ years, empowering their student-athletes by revealing the real process behind college recruiting.

What's in it for our students?

Reality. For many high school players, it's the ultimate dream: to earn an athletic scholarship to play their favorite sport at the collegiate level. Jack knows that more of your kids CAN play in college if they understand their options. So, how do you go about doing this? Jack will give the families the straight talk on actual scholarship offers, NCAA Eligibility Center, Recruiting Letters, home recruiting visits, official paid visits, traveling clubs, summer showcases, and much, much more!

Want to know more?

See for yourself! Take a few minutes and view a sample preview of Jack speaking at an event. We think you'll agree that Jack will deliver the truth about playing sports all with honestly, humor and impact.
See Jack in Action! Watch his videos on our website:

Thanks for taking the time to view the above... See you at the presentation!
