It is that time of year again! As we begin the 2014-2015 school year, our small community is buzzing with the excitement generated by our athletic endeavors over the last three years. It is hard to believe I am entering my fourth year serving you as your athletic director. When I arrived at CAI we had some “walls” to rebuild, and over the last three years we have not only repaired broken walls but we have changed the culture of athletics at our school. Today we have student athletes striving for the incorruptible prize and competing at high levels. I believe this year we will all be able to witness the fruit from our intense labor. Though I am excited about the harvest, I know that the planting and watering must go on at even greater intensities. With that in mind, here is some important information as we begin 2014-2015:
First Day of Practice for ALL FALL SPORTS:
Fall sports will begin July 30. If your 5th-12th grade student intends on playing a fall sport, they need to be on the roster before July 30. If you missed fall sports signups, please email myself or Coach O’Loughlin as soon as possible at charper@caschools or boloughlin@caschools.
**Remember, all student athletes must have an updated sports physical on file before they can begin play.
Elementary Sports – Fall Soccer:
Fall soccer will be provided for our kindergarten-4th grade students this year. Signups will begin late August, so be on the lookout for registration emails.
CAI Athletic Department will Host the Warrior 4-Miler:
This years Warrior 4-Miler has been moved to August 16, so that all of our student athletes, students and families can participate in this community event. Proceeds from the race this year will go to help our Scholar Athlete Scholarship program. We encourage all of our CAI families to run and to invite your friends and family! Visit warrior4miler.com for more information and to signup.
New Staff Member – Ross Heinz:
CAI athletics would like to introduce everyone to our new Assistant Athletic Director, Ross Heinz. Ross is a CAI alumni and has been serving as a coach in our elementary, middle school and high school programs for the last three years. Ross is getting ready to graduate from Indiana University Southeast and is excited about the opportunity to serve here at CAI in the athletic department.
During the Back-to-School orientation on July 29, we will have our Warrior Armory set up in the commons area so that you can purchase the latest school/spirit wear. The Armory will be open from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. Also, visit our athletics table for all your fall sports information and forms.
