Registering for Athletics
Families should register on the Athletic Association website (https://www.avemariaaa.org/) for athletics at Ave Maria Academy. There are 3 steps to registering:
- Register your Family on the website (use the "register" link at the top of the page)
- Add your family members
- Register student family members for sports
Online Registration Help
The Registration Help walks you through the three steps described above for online registration.
Paper Registration Form
If you cannot use the website, you can download and use a paper registration form (PDF, Word) - one for each athlete. Turn the paper form in at the school office.
Registration Fee Assistance
To take part in any sport the school office must have the child's current Medical Release (PDF) form. This does not apply to the "Little" sports.
In general, registrations are open before the start of each sports season - Fall, Winter, and Spring.
Fielding a team for a particular sport depends on having enough volunteer coaches. Also, if enough students do not register for a sport to field a team the Athletic Association will make every effort to place the students who did register on a team at a nearby school. * indicates that the team participates in a Diocese of Pittsburgh sanctioned sports league.

The Athletic Association will assess a fee of $50.00 for each athletic uniform not returned after the season.
Team Parent and Parent Volunteers
An AMA students' involvement in athletics requires parents or guardians to volunteer as needed - along with all other families taking part in the athletic program. Volunteering includes working at home games collecting entrance fees, running concessions, selling raffles, etc.
Each team at the school also must have a volunteer to serve as Team Parent/Manager to coordinate all volunteer activities for the team.
