Announcements and Important Events
Hello FCA Family! As we eagerly look ahead to the Fall 2021 season, please see the information below regarding middle school sports for the fall season. Please read this announcement in it's entirety:
Middle School Sports Sign-Ups
Middle school student-athletes sign up for sports through their academic schedule. If your child is looking to play a fall sport, please make sure it is added to their academic schedule. The fall middle school sports are listed below:
- Boys Soccer
- Girls Soccer
- Girls Field Hockey
- Girls Volleyball
If you have a question regarding your student’s academic schedule, please contact the main office by phone (215-536-2255) or email (RHeller@my-fca.com).
Middle school student-athletes begin practice during 8th period, as their fall sport is part of their academic schedule. Practices will be daily (Monday-Friday) from 2:15-4:00 PM.
Student Central Portal
Faith Christian Academy Athletics will now be utilizing the Student Central portal. This digital platform will allow you, and your student-athlete(s), to complete and access athletic forms via computer, tablet, or mobile phone. It is HIPAA, COPPA and FERPA compliant. This platform will allow also you to digitally complete the required PIAA CIPPE physical (see below), as well as receive real time updates regarding the athletics schedule for your student-athlete(s) team.
I have attached instructions on how to access the portal and create accounts for you and your student-athlete(s). There is also a very helpful YouTube link below that can assist you with creating your account.
Student-athletes MUST create their individual accounts before linking their parent(s) account(s).
PIAA Physical Forms
As a reminder, all Faith Christian Academy student-athletes must receive an annual physical examination by a certified medical professional and submit the completed PIAA CIPPE forms BEFORE the start of their sport season.
Student-athletes will not be able to participate in any official practices or compete in any scrimmages or contests before their PIAA CIPPE form is submitted to the Student Central Portal. Please make sure that all requested information is filled out with the appropriate signatures by the physician, parent/guardian, and student-athlete.
As a note, the PIAA has updated the CIPPE form for this upcoming academic year.
There are walk-in clinics available that will complete the CIPPE form for your student-athlete. As long as your child does not have any pre-existing conditions, the St. Luke's CareNow centers are a great option and available for walk-in appointments dependent on the location. Many of our student-athletes use these centers as they are quick and efficient. All you have to do is take the paperwork for the PIAA form with you to be completed by the physician. Below is a link outlining locations:
We rejoice the year the Lord graciously provided last year and ask that you please continue to pray for our leadership, coaches, student-athletes and community as we venture into this exciting new year! (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)
