Student Athlete Handbook

St Joseph High School is a Roman Catholic educational institution whose primary function is to educate the whole student. The students’ spiritual and academic growth is our focus, but we recognize the value of a comprehensive athletic program to enhance their experience. We will support our teams and our athletes in a positive and caring way. We will follow all CIAC, FCIAC and Saint Joseph High School regulations, goals, and objectives. We encourage our coaches to stress the importance of physical fitness, conditioning, and safety in all athletic activities.

Please visit the NCAA Clearinghouse website for all regulations, policies, expectations for those involved in the School's athletic program.

Transportation Waiver

Athletes are expected to travel to and from games on the bus with their team. However, we do grant waivers for very special circumstances (i.e you live closer to the away game site than to St Joe's). Please sign, have your child's coach sign and have your child bring the Transportation Waiver Form in person to Mr Butler or Ms Nasser directly if there is a specific game that your child cannot ride the bus back to school following a game:

Transportation Waiver Form (must be submitted in person and must be signed by coach and AD)
