You can refer to this webpage, or download and print this two-page checklist (PDF) of the essential tasks and activities for incoming students this spring and summer.

Summer reading assignments are posted to this page on families.siprep.org.

Athletics registration is open. To participate in SI Athletics, including tryouts, you must register to play through SI’s FamilyID system. As a part of this process, you will need to upload SI’s Ticket to Play Medical Clearance Form. The Ticket to Play form requires a physical exam with a doctor. Therefore, we strongly encourage you to schedule this exam between June 1 and August 1 to maintain athletic eligibility for the entire school year. Please do not register for FamilyID until you are ready to upload your Ticket to Play form.

JUNE–JULY
Frosh Foundations and SI Athletics strength and conditioning run. We recommend and encourage you to go to www.siprograms.com for detailed information about athletic options this summer.

Twenty-two of our sports programs have strength and conditioning workouts during the season and off-season. The Frosh Foundations class introduces student-athletes to our staff and techniques. This is an excellent option for all athletes — with the exception of football, since they will incorporate their strength and conditioning programming into their football camp.

Wildcat football, women's volleyball, men's basketball, and women's basketball all have camps open to the Class of 2028.

Find more details, including specific programs, dates and times, and participation fees, on www.siprograms.com. For questions, contact Athletic Director John Mulkerrins at jmulkerrins@siprep.org.
