Fall Sports

Fall Practices Open

Senior High football heat acclimation practice begins August 6 with all other Fall sports teams beginning practice on Monday, August 13.  For exact practice times, contact the head coach or Mr. Bankos at kbankos@yorkcatholic.org or 717-846-8871 x214.


No Practice Until Paperwork is on File

Students wishing to participate in athletics during the 2018-2019 school year must submit the following paperwork online:

  • PIAA Physical Form
  • Athlete & Parent Agreement
  • ImPACT Test

Students wishing to play any sport during the 2018-2019 school year MUST verify the paperwork is on file with Mr. Hayek no later than Wednesday, August 1, at 3 PM; no exceptions.


The York Catholic Athletic Department now hosts their Athletic Forms online with Arbiter Athlete, powered by PlanetHS, a software company committed to keeping student(s) safe.  This digital platform will allow parents and athletes to complete and access most athletic forms (physicals, agreements, etc.) via computer, tablet, or mobile phone.  It is HIPPA, COPPA, and FERPA compliant.

If your child did not the York Catholic Physicals Night at OSS, you will need to make an appointment with your family doctor or go to one of the Urgent Care Centers.  Be sure to complete the information online and only print 2 pages for the doctor to review and complete.

Before forms can be completed by parent and student, ArbiterAthlete accounts must be set-up by each athlete and his or her parent.  Please click here for the instructions on how to set-up an account. Forms will be valid for the entire 2018-2019 school year.

Failure to complete the online paperwork by the deadline will mean the student will not be permitted to practice the first day of the season.  For some sports, this could mean the student will not make the team.  Contact Mr. Hayek at bhayek@yorkcatholic.org or 717-846-8871 x244 if you have any questions and to be sure you have a valid ImPACT Test on file.  If you need technical assistance with Arbiter Athlete/PlanetHS, email schoolsupport@planeths.com.


Sports Program Publication                                        

The YC Athletic Association (YCAA) is coordinating the sports program publication, which will be sold during football games, other sports’ home games, and through the YC Athletic Office. Each year, parents of seniors are offered to place a discounted ¼-page ad in the program to honor their senior student-athlete or student-musician.  Click here for complete information and to see a sample page from last year’s program. The deadline to place an ad is Thursday, August 16.

If businesses would like to purchase an ad, please click here for rates and information.  If businesses would like to purchase a banner to advertise year-round at our football, basketball, and volleyball games, please click here for information.  Thank you for your support of the Athletic Association and our students.
