The Mission of the Brooks Eagles Athletics program is to provide equal and rewarding opportunities for all of our student athletes to strive for excellence in their respective sport. Through relentless competition, work ethic, and commitment a Brooks student athlete will continuously compete at a high level athletically and academically. All student athletes are expected to follow all school-wide policies, Chicago Public Schools policies, and regulations mandated by the Illinois High School Association (IHSA). Brooks’s student athletes will be expected to conduct themselves with integrity, good sportsmanship, and display the highest of level of leadership that exemplifies a student at Gwendolyn Brooks College Preparatory Academy.

Each student who competes in an athletics extracurricular activity has to fill out an IHSA Physical Form, each year. This is a mandate of the State of Illinois and the Chicago Public Schools. Any student who does not submit a completed form will not be allowed to participate in any interscholastic sports.
