Athletics

Celebrating Community and Skill

Any Roycemore student in Grades 5 through 12 can participate in interscholastic athletics regardless of skill level. The Athletic Department at Roycemore helps the school celebrate individuality and inspires excellence by:

  • Emphasizing student participation in athletic programs over competing at the highest level possible
  • Establishing sportsmanship, character development, a positive attitude, and teamwork as the top priorities for all Roycemore athletes
  • Modeling goal-setting and planning as important life skills beyond the court or field
  • Promoting the benefits of a strong work ethic and sound preparation and practice habits
  • Instilling in all students a life-long appreciation of the benefits of exercise and the important role physical activity plays in determining the quality of life

Athletic Forms

There are several forms and documents that are required before your child’s first day of school. For ease of gathering that information, we have compiled this list. Please find any forms specifically required for athletic participation in the list below:

Mission Statement

By celebrating the individual in the context of the team, we showcase the strength of diversity & inclusion in athletics and our communities.

At all levels, citizenship is emphasized as the primary lesson to be learned from an athletic program that draws its strength from the student body. Athletics at Roycemore are an essential part of the curriculum. Likewise, community is an essential part of Roycemore’s curriculum. For Middle School and Upper School athletics, these two critical elements of the curriculum work together hand in hand. Roycemore has a “no cut” policy for team sports. All students who meet the requirements and are willing to commit to the team are welcome to join, regardless of level of experience. Athletics at Roycemore are designed to provide every student with an experience in teamwork, opportunities for socialization, skill development, exposure to a variety of different sports, a healthy lifestyle, and an understanding of the competitive spirit. 

Roycemore is a full member of the Illinois High School Association (IHSA) and participates in the Lake Shore Athletic League. Sports programs include volleyball, soccer, fencing, basketball, and tumbling. Participation on all teams is open to any student who maintains the minimum IHSA grade requirements and regularly attends practices and games. Roycemore supports all athletic interests and seeks to empower our student athletes to develop a passion for sports through on and off campus programming.
