News & Events

The Student Activities office is working closely with school administration and the Minnesota State High School League to establish small group workout procedures and return to play protocol. Because there is a significant amount of planning required to keep everyone safe, we thank you in advance for your patience as we plan accordingly. We will communicate more information to you via email and the Remind App as the planning process develops. 

The optional summer waiver period begins Monday, June 15, which allows coaches to start contacting athletes about coaching and instruction. This will look different than past years, as we will need to account for social distancing and safety measures. The Summer Waiver Period will run through Friday, August 7, with a “No Contact Period” July 3-5. During the No Contact Period, coaches cannot reach out to athletes. No in person contact can take place until coaches get approval from the Activities Office and school administration. The Activities Office and school administration are diligently working to develop plans for in person training plans; look for more information before June 15. Until then (June 1-14) coaches can connect with athletes virtually in regards to team building, leadership, and suggested workouts. Coaches cannot give assessment or evaluation until June 15.

Every athlete in the state of Minnesota needs to have a sports physical on file in their Activities Office. Sports physicals typically have a three year shelf life, this year the expiration date on current sports physicals will be extended for one year from the date of the current physical. All incoming students and students participating in athletics for the first time will need to submit a valid sports physical to the DeLaSalle High School Activities Office. If you have not had a sports physical filled out within the last three years, we recommend that you set this appointment with your clinic ASAP. 

The MSHSL 2020-2021 Sports Physical Document can be found here. 

Much like planning for the summer months, the Activities Office is also taking a look at what Fall 2020 will look like in terms of group gatherings, social distancing, and safety measures. We will continue to work with DeLaSalle School Administration and the MSHSL to make sure we are returning to play in a safe and healthy manner. Fall Sports Registration will open the week of July 6th. There are three steps to complete in order to be registered for your fall sport, registration must be complete by the first day of practice (August 17th) in order to participate. 

1) An updated Sports Physical signed and dated by a licensed physician & turned into the Activities Office (see post above).

2) A completed MSHSL Eligibility Form completed & turned in as part of your Back to School Forms (this will be available at a later date and sent with your Back to School Forms).

3) Completed & Submitted DLS Fall Sport Registration Form via Google Forms (this will be available the week of July 6th).

Sign up for the Remind App today to receive updates and communication from your coaches! The Remind App is a school approved communication tool for all athletic teams at DeLaSalle (plus theatre). Parents/guardians and students are welcomed to join each team they plan on participating on by downloading the App and entering in the correct class codes. We ask that all families sign up for the “program” codes for each sport their son or daughter will participate in. Once team levels are selected, you can then sign up for that specific team code as well. Click here to get started!

The distinguishing feature and reason for the existence of DeLaSalle’s student activity offerings is to assist students in their religious, spiritual, and moral formation as well as provide for the student a better understanding of how all activities at DeLaSalle support its mission. All co-curricular offerings strive to promote a Christian environment while enriching not only our students but also the greater community. Learn more about each activity, including the head coach, their season schedule, and more below. DeLaSalle students may register for a sport using the “Register Here” link for each program.
