Athletic Scheduling Program

We will be using rSchool to schedule all Athletic Contests. This program has a lot of features that will make it easier to keep track of your sons/daughters contest schedule.  For example:
  • You can download your son/daughters contest schedule into your calendar program and when we (the Athletic Department) change one of his/her contests, it will move the contest on whatever calendar program you use automatically - which is very nice.
  • You can sign up to receive text/e-mail alerts regarding schedule changes - really nice for parents of kids playing outdoor spring sports where the schedule is "fluid."
  • You can have rSchool send you a text or e-mail reminder 15/30/45/etc., minutes before your son/daughters contest is supposed to start so you don't miss it.
  • Please refer to this document to begin using Rschool. 

End of Season Surveys

Student Athletes – The Vernon Hills Athletic Department is always looking for ways we can improve our Athletic Programs, and we want to get some feedback from you about the season.  To gather this feedback, we have created a survey for you to complete - see below:

Will resume in the Fall

CPR Training Video

Illinois Public Act 098-0305 requires the IHSA to be given a CPR training video to post on its website so that staff at IHSA-member schools can watch it.  The act also indicates school districts shall notify parents and encourage them to view the video.  To view this video, please click here.
