Welcome to the Athletic Department Home Page

The Athletic Department endeavors to match the academic excellence of the school by offering eight club sports and twenty six interscholastic sports for girls and boys. In most years, nearly sixty five percent of the students at Saint Ignatius participate in athletics.

As a member of the Chicago Catholic League, the Girls Catholic Athletic Conference, and the Metro Catholic Aquatics Conference, the Wolfpack prides itself in competing with top-flight competition on the freshman, sophomore, junior varsity and varsity levels.

Saint Ignatius College Prep and all other Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Chicago are prohibited from offering scholarships, financial aid, monetary awards or promising anything based solely on athletic talent in accordance with the rules of the Illinois High School Association.

Athletico and Weiss Memorial Hospital Host 2016-2017 Sports Physical for Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors! 

Attention All Sophomore, Junior and Senior Saint Ignatius Athletes!

Athletico & Weiss Memorial Hospital will be providing sports physicals on July 19th, 2016 from 12:30 p.m. until 4:30 p.m. in Gentile Gym and The Athletic Training Room at Saint Ignatius for all upperclassmen. Dr. Danielle Bass will be administrating the physicals to get you prepared for your upcoming seasons for $25. Cash or check made payable to Weiss Memorial Hospital will be accepted.

Athletico and the Athletics Department do not hold on to any copies of the physicals given at school. All original documents will be returned to the student athlete upon completion of the physical so the parent can fill out the rest of the Athletic Package needed to participate in athletics for the 2016-2017 school year.

All physicals for sophomore, junior and senior athletes must be turned into the Head Coach of the program on day one of tryouts. DO NOT MAIL PHYSICALS TO THE NURSE OR ATHETICS DEPARTMENT!

Please refer to SICP Athletics Newsletter from Athletic Director, Mr. Paul Ickes, for more details and requirements.
