In the spirit of competition, participation and building a positive self-esteem, specific sixth, seventh and eighth grade teams will be limited to a maximum number of athletes.. Girls Softball, Boys Baseball, Boys and Girls Basketball, Co-ed Soccer, Cheerleading and Girls Volleyball teams have an established roster limit on the number of contestants. This policy allows our athletes better skill development, higher levels of competitions, and a greater self-esteem, as a result of more individualized coaching. We at Channahon Public Schools, attempt to provide our students with every opportunity to succeed at whatever they endeavor; our athletes are deserving of the same opportunity.
We will have a "core team" philosophy at the sixth grade level and an introductory "instructional" program at the fifth grade level. Sixth grade coaches will select a "core team" made up of the best athletes, which will be called the "A" team. The remainder of the students will be called the "B" team and those students will participate in the second game of the night on game nights.
