Academic Eligibility: Athletic eligibility checks are Friday, March 19 and the end of the 9 weeks was Friday, March 5. A student-athlete's grades on March 19 will control their eligibility from 3/19 through the end of spring sports, so if an IHSAA spring sport student-athlete did not pass 5 classes, their season is over, even if they have an Incomplete grade. Check with your student and Skyward. If they have an INC grade, it can be changed for eligibility up through 3/19. If they don’t get the INC to passing by 3/19, they should sill complete their INC, but it cannot count towards athletic eligibility. (IHSAA rule) They also can still be eligible for next fall sports by passing 5 classes for 2nd semester.
Ticket Plans: Elkhart County is oscillating between a yellow and blue county.. Visit goshenredhawks.org and the TIcket Plan announcement for updates, but we have not determined the spring plan as of yet. Digital ticketing is likely to be encouraged. Track & field will likely have not limits due to the size of Foreman Field, and softball and baseball will likely have restrictions, but we will strive to make sure parents can attend.
Live Streaming: We do not plan to live stream spring events.
Schedule updates: Visit goshenredhawks.org.
Strength and Conditioning: Your child enrolled in their fall classes recently. Please ask them if they signed up for physical development. It is extremely important that student-athletes participate in the physical development class. Coach Miller will also be offering sports performance this summer every AM…..keep an eye out for details. This programs allows all of our kids to improve their athleticism and puts kids from different sports working together. It builds RedHawk pride in our athletic programs, increases athleticism, and allows our coaches to focus on sport skiils when they have the kids. It also helps our multi-sport athletes tremendously by valuing their time!
Athletic accomplishments: Congratulations to NIck Zehr on being a state qualifier in two swim events! Great accomplishment and Coach Miller was named NLC co-coach of the year for boys swimming. Coach Hill was named NLC coach of the year for girls basketball. Also, we had many kids earn all NLC honors and Academic all state honors.
