Dear Parents of Student Athletes:

On behalf of the administration, Athletic Department, coaching staff and the Athletic Association of Bishop Watterson High School, we welcome you to the 2013 - 2014 school year. We are proud of last year’s accomplishments and we are very excited about the coming year! We truly appreciate your financial commitment and participation in your child’s athletic experience. As you know, parental involvement in the Association’s activities is essential to the successful funding of the athletic teams at Bishop Watterson High School.

By September 15, 2013, all parents of student athletes are required to join the Association by completing the on-line membership forms and submitting your one-time, family membership fee of $230.00. This membership fee is a "pay to play" fee for your student athlete(s). Please log-on at to complete your membership forms and to pay your membership fee.

As members of the Association, we also require you to sign-up and assist with Bishop Watterson athletic events or other Athletic Association activities. Each member family is required to sign-up and work one Athletic Association sponsored event.
