Chaska Hawks Varsity Football: Spectator Allowance Information

This year’s sports season is like none other we’ve seen before.  With limitations on seasons, on spectators, and other “normal” parts of athletics, our focus this fall is on our student athletes.  The steps we are taking – in alignment with Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) guidance – ensure we are doing everything we can to support a safe and healthy return to play. While football has traditionally been a community event within the Eastern Carver County School District, this season will look different.  Football games this fall will be just that – not community events but games. Per MDH and MDE guidelines, stadium spectator capacity is capped at 250.  This 250 spectator capacity will be split evenly between home and away teams, allowing for each competing school/community an allocation of 125 tickets.  Preference for these 125 tickets will be provided to the families of our Chaska Hawks varsity players. All 125 Chaska... Continue reading Chaska Hawks Varsity Football: Spectator Allowance Information

2020-21 Sports Qualifying Physicals

A reminder that all student-athletes that intend to participate in a school-sponsored Chaska Hawks fall, winter, and/or spring athletics program, must have a qualified sports physical on file with the Chaska Hawks Athletics Department, prior to any participation clearance.  Please note the following adjustments, approved by the MSHSL Board for the 2020-21 school year: • During the 2020-21 school year only, all current physical dates on file with Chaska Athletics will be good for three calendar years.  For example, if a student’s date of physical was August 17, 2018, that physical would be good through August 17, 2021 for the 2020-21 school year only.  Prior to this adjustment, District 112 practice was that a physical clearance was good for two calendar years. • Each student must still complete the annual health history questionnaire. This will be done as part of the online registration process.  The online registration system is scheduled to open on July 13th.  • Any student...

FREE Resource to Track/Project Future NCAA Eligibility

The Chaska High School Athletics Department provides a FREE resource to our students/families to begin tracking/projecting future NCAA Eligibility through a resource called “Core Course GPA”.  Did you know: NCAA DI/DII Initial-Eligibility academic requirements are different than the graduation requirements for Chaska High School. Not all courses offered at Chaska High School are accepted by the NCAA as core courses for the purpose of meeting the NCAA’s credit and GPA requirements. An NCAA core course GPA is not the same as the cumulative GPA on the report card and is often lower. The minimum NCAA core GPA requirements are more rigorous than graduation requirements. In addition, the lower your NCAA core GPA, the higher your SAT/ACT scores must be. Counselors and coaches do not track student-athletes for NCAA Initial-Eligibility. Students interested in playing athletics at the collegiate level should begin tracking their NCAA core course GPA their freshman year. All...
