Bacon Academy Athletic Registration
We are pleased to announce that our Athletic registration for Bacon Academy is now available through the parent portal of PowerSchool under “Ecollect Forms”. This new feature will simplify the athletic registration process as it populates most of your child’s information from PowerSchool into the form. Click on PowerSchool then go to "Forms" tab on the left side and look for the "Athletics Registration" form (see below).
The secure registration platform provides you with an easy, user-friendly way to register for our programs, and helps us to be more administratively efficient and environmentally responsible.

RE: NCAA Eligibility: The CIAC has been communicating with the NCAA eligibility center to understand how initial student-athlete eligibility may be impacted by COVID-19. The NCAA has been very responsive and have recently published an update to initial eligibility. The following link will provide you with a PDF that can be shared with your student-athletes, coaches, and parents. http://www.casciac.org/pdfs/NCAAInitialEligibityCOVID-19Update.pdf
Athletic Academic Requirements:
In addition to all CIAC eligibility rules, Bacon Academy requires student-athletes to be passing a minimum of 5 classes excluding physical education courses (0945, 0946, 0941) for each marking period. This rule also pertains to fall sports which uses course grades rather than marking period grades. Click here to review recent changes to the academic standards for the class of 2016 and beyond.
There will be several games available on-line as part of the new NFHS Network at www.NFHSnetwork.com
