Fall high school athletes must register online before start of season
All East Aurora High School athletes who plan to participate in fall sports are required to register online at https://eahs.8to18.com/accounts/login before the start of the season. The fall sports include: boys and girls cheerleading, boys and girls cross country, boys and girls dance, boys football, boys golf, boys soccer, girls tennis, and girls volleyball.
The online registration forms will be similar to previous years, which ask athletes to agree to or supply several items, including emergency contacts and equipment release. Student-athletes will also need a current IHSA physical turned into their coach or athletic office. The IHSA physical form can be found here.
For questions about registration, please contact the team’s head coach or the East Aurora High School athletic office at (630) 299-8143.
Athlete registration fee
Athletes are required to pay a $30 athletic registration fee, which helps offset the cost of uniforms, equipment, and facilities. The $30 fee applies to the first and second sports that an athlete plays. There is no fee after the first two sports.
Students could have the fees waived if they fill out the free and reduce lunch form, which can be found here.
For boys soccer and girls volleyball, the athletic registration fee will not be required until after tryouts. Once athletes are moved to the active roster, they will be notified if they need to pay the fee or ask for a fee waiver. However, registration must be completed prior tryouts.
Physicals available at high school
Any students from high school who need physicals can also visit the Tomcat Health Center near the main office at East Aurora High School. The health center is open 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Fridays. Parents can walk in, or call (630) 299-8023 for an appointment.
When getting a physical, parents should bring proof of insurance and immunization records. Physicals cost $25, but the Health Center accepts most forms of Medicaid and several insurance providers. Parents can call for information about whether their insurance will be accepted.
