Bandit Athletics

Confidence. Strength. Competitive Spirit.

Welcome to Resurrection Athletics - Home of the Bandits!

Athletics is another way Resurrection builds young women’s confidence and prepares them to take on leadership positions in all levels of society. It helps young women develop collaborative skills, strengthen their bodies, and create competitive spirit. 

Resurrection College Prep student-athletes learn to excel physically and academically with integrity, respect, hard work and leadership, while setting personal goals in a collaborative team environment. Nearly half of the student body participates in an athletic sport. With twenty-six teams and twelve sports to choose from, we offer a wide range of options for athletes to test and strengthen their limits.

The Resurrection campus includes ample green space in the midst of our Chicago neighborhood. With over 22 acres of land, our campus is filled with room for our many sports teams to practice and compete. Outdoor spaces on our campus are large enough to host 1.5 mile cross country meets and also include two softball fields, a soccer field, a lacrosse field, and track.   

Resurrection College Prep High School is a proud member of the Girls' Catholic Athletic Conference (GCAC) and the Illinois High School Association (IHSA).

COVID-19 Pandemic – Changes to Resurrection Athletic Programs

As many of you suspected, COVID-19 has altered how we will conduct high school sports in the 2020 school year.  Below is the current plan as of July 29th approved by the IHSA Board of Directors and the Governor’s office.  IDPH will still have to sign off.  As everyone knows this situation is fluid, changes may occur.  

For all sports the playoff picture is unclear, there may not even be playoffs.  All sports only permit competition between GCAC League Schools and schools in the City of Chicago.  Schedules will have to be altered from what is up online currently. 

Cross Country, Swim, Tennis, and Golf will begin as scheduled on August 13th with tryouts.  They will be over by October 24th.

Volleyball has been bumped to a Spring #1 season that will begin on February 15th and end on May 1st

Basketball and Bowling  were schedule to begin on November 16th and end on February 13th.   However, winter sports tryouts will be postponed until further notice.  This includes both bowling and basketball.  The IHSA Board of Directors called for a meeting Thursday, November 19 with representatives from IDPH and the Governor’s office to discuss the possibility of basketball in Illinois.  Once we know the results of this meeting we will decide how to proceed with winter sports.

As it stands right now Basketball would not be played at Resurrection.  The Governor’s office, Archdiocese, as well as our insurance and legal counsel all advise against participation in basketball currently, recommending to delay until the spring.  Bowling as it stands right now is a go for the winter season.  This could change if additional restrictions are placed on bowling alleys.  Bowling tryouts are being delayed to allow for basketball players interested in bowling to tryout should the basketball season be moved to spring.     

Water Polo will join volleyball in the Spring #1 season from February 15th till May 1st.

Soccer, Softball, Track, and Lacrosse will begin May 3rd and end June 26th as part of a Spring #2 or Summer season. 

*Please note that athletes trying out for fall sports must bring their own water bottle, mask, and hand sanitizer

*A re-entry plan for athletics at Resurrection College Prep will be forthcoming.
