All 6th-12th grade students are permitted and encouraged to try out for a team. Please read below for a list of important upcoming dates and requirements for any athlete planning on trying out for a Fall Sport in the 2018-2019 school year. Please keep in mind that starting dates are tentative and may change (field/court conditions, weather, etc.).
2018 Fall Sports Deadlines and Information
Middle School Level (6th-8th Grade) – Boys Soccer, Girls Soccer
Junior Varsity/Varsity Level (9th-12th Grade) – Boys Soccer, Girls Soccer, Co-Ed Cross Country, Girls Tennis, Girls Cheerleading
Requirements: All forms can be found at http://cca.ccphilly.org/athletics/sports-forms/. We must receive the following items by Friday, August 3rd in order for your son or daughter to try out for a team.
- PIAA Physical (Sections 1-6). Sections 1-5 need to be filled by a parent/guardian along with your athlete’s signature. Section 6 must be filled out, dated, and signed by a licensed physician on/after June 1st, 2018. Physicals that are not completed and dated on or after this date will not be accepted. In addition, any physical that is filled out on a non-PIAA form will not be accepted by the Athletic Office (ex. Dept. of Health Form).
- If you are having trouble obtaining a physical due to insurance restrictions, we have found that Minute Clinics (CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid, etc) will complete PIAA physicals for athletes for a fee. Urgent Care Centers can also provide physicals for a fee. This would be a recommended option if you are not able to schedule a physical with your athlete’s doctor in the time frame needed.
- We strongly suggest that all athletes (fall, winter, spring) have their physicals completed over the summer. This will prevent any possible delays with appointment scheduling or any unforeseen issues that may arise.
- Registration Form
- Commitment Contract
- Athletic Fee- $175 ($200 for Cheer). Please make checks payable to CCA. Credit cards are not accepted.
Important Fall Dates

Preseason tryouts/practices take place every day, Monday through Friday (start date is below). All athletes who are trying out are expected to be in attendance every day. An athlete’s absence from these preseason tryouts/practices may result in his/her inability to make the team or hinder his/her participation due to the lack of coach’s evaluation and commitment. With this in mind, please plan accordingly in regards to planning vacations or making other plans that would affect your athlete’s attendance during these weeks.
