Multiple Teams · New process of Gladiators who sign National Letters of Intent to play in college

Gladiator Nation,

In order to better protect our instructional day, JCHS will be changing how we host signing days for our student athletes that play in college.  As a whole, we are striving to protect the instructional day but also trying to make athletic signings more of a community event.  Starting this year, all JCHS signing ceremonies will be held after school in the cafeteria.  The 5 dates that this will take place on are:

Early Signing Period – Wednesday, November 8th

Division 1 Football Early Signing Period – Wednesday, December 20th

National Signing Day – Wednesday, February 7th

Spring Signing Day – Wednesday, April 18th

Last Signing Day – Wednesday, May 16th

These events will be in the cafeteria from 3:30pm to 5pm.  The length of the event may vary depending on the number of signees.  Parents are to contact the head coach of their sport in order to reserve a spot at one of the signing days.  Head coaches must confirm with the college/university that the athlete is signing with a school for athletic purposes.  All of the dates above match up with the NCAA National Letter of Intent signing dates.  There will be no signing dates for students who are given preferred walk-on status.  Division 3 athletic signings will be handled accordingly based on all Division 3 programs not being allowed to give out athletic scholarships.
