Athletics Participation

In order to participate in Helias Catholic athletics each student must stay academically eligible and meet all other requirements outlined in the Athletic Handbook.

Activities fee

There is a participation fee of $275 to participate in a MSHSAA-sanctioned sport or activity. The fee helps to cover the increasing cost of running athletic and activity programs (transportation, tournament fees, officials, uniforms, equipment, etc.) Helias Catholic offers an opportunity each fall to offset the cost of activities participation with the NFL raffle ticket fundraiser.

Registration

Helias Catholic partners with the rSchoolToday sports management platform to electronically organize registration and medical information for student-athletes and activities participants. This is where all waivers are signed and sports physical documentation uploaded.

To set up your rSchoolToday account, visit heliascatholic-ar.rschooltoday.com/, click “View My Account” at the top right, then click “Create New Account” and follow the instructions to register.

Sports physicals

Please see the five-page document linked here for the new MSHSAA Preparticipation Physical Evaluation Form/Process for students’ 2023-24 required physical to participate in athletics.

Starting for the 2023-24 school year, MSHSAA will require students to turn in only the Medical Eligibility Form (page 5) to the school. Helias Catholic will continue to require this form be submitted annually.

If you believe the school nurse or athletic trainer should be made aware of a medical condition or previous health issue, please provide additional information or contact them directly at skampketer@heliascatholic.com (school nurse Mrs. Staci Kampeter) or kschenewerk@heliascatholic.com (athletic trainer Ms. Kelsey Schenewerk).
