Is anyone aware if thr baseball teams at our schools include students from private schools? I was told Wilmington uses players from the local Catholic school so they can field a better team. I don't think it is fair that the Wilmington town team should compete with Coal Cities pulic school team.

its not like the kids from the catholic school are there on athletic scholarships. this isnt college dude. thre is about maybe 20 or 30 kids per grade there. just because someone wants to believe in god and go to a catholic school doesnt mean they are any different than the public school kids. if the kids at the catholic school werent allowed to play with the public schools teams they wouldnt get the oppritunity to play school athletics. i think wilmington is being pretty nice and pretty fair to give them the oppritunity to have a decent childhood. if coal city and braidwood had catholic schools im sure they would be doing the same thing.

Maybe if we just beat them on the field there would be no issues.

The rules state that if a private school resides within a public school district and the private school does not provide a sport that the public school has a student has the right to tryout for the public school team as long as they reside in the public school district. Don't wine cause they beat your ass and your trying to find excuses!!!!!!

basically what i said. seems like a perfectly good rule. all kids from the same town. just different schools. catholic schools have small class numbers anyhow.

Captain Spaulding is correct -- if the private school doesn't/can't offer the sport, the private school student can join the public school team -- after all, not only do private school parents pay tuition, they ALSO pay taxes to the public school. Those kids DO have to try out -- Wilmington schools didn't "recruit" them, these kids showed up to try out for the team and were good enough to make the team. The A team doesn't have any private school students on their team and they beat Coal City 10-0 ... so explain THAT one!

Is it because they don't have enough students to make their own team? St. Rose is a small school. It would give kids a chance to play a sport if it isn't available to them.

it looks like football practice because nobody cares about track and it's a prefect opportunity to get ready for football. they call it spring ball.
