The goal of the registration/eligibility process is to issue your child a yellow card indicating they are able to participate in sports at BBHS. This eligibility card indicates to the school and the coach that the student-athlete has met the requirements for participation in interscholastic athletics; without the card, student-athletes may not attend or participate in any practice for a Bishop Blanchet team. If you have questions, please email either Laura Fieser (Athletic Assistant) firstname.lastname@example.org or Rick O’Leary (Athletic Director) email@example.com.
We are transitioning to electronic forms for athletic registration. The forms can be found on the school admin site https://bishopblanchet.schooladminonline.com/portal . Forms need to be completed prior to obtaining your yellow card. The medical pre-participation and physical are still hard copies. Please bring the medical forms and your sport fee when registering for your sport.

The Athletic Program at Bishop Blanchet works to develop a Christian athlete who places God ahead of individual or team victories, and who strives to play to the best of his/her ability while exemplifying the qualities of good sportsmanship and fair play.The development of the individual athlete is placed ahead of winning. Student-athletes will develop spiritually, physically, psychologically, and socially through their participation in a positive program.
“(I) consider sports as an instrument of education when it fosters high human and
spiritual needs; when it forms youth in an integral way in values such as loyalty,
perseverance, friendship, solidarity and peace. Surmounting differences of cultures and
ideologies, sports offers an ideal occasion for dialogue and understanding among peoples, for building the desired civilization of love. To put into practice these values, based on the dignity of the human person, in face of possible interests that might darken the nobility of sports itself.” Pope John Paul II (Sept. 16, 2002)
