   Routt Catholic High School is a member of the Illinois High School Association (IHSA) and abides by its rules governing athletic and Scholastic Bowl participation. A recent clarification of an IHSA rule found that freshmen who have attended four years at a parochial grade school and live farther than 30 miles from the school can attend Routt and be eligible for any sport participation. Any freshman within 30 miles, can participate. To learn more about IHSA regulations, go to or call Routt at (217) 243-8563.

   Over 80% of the Routt student body is active in athletics and many students play more than one sport in a season. Routt gives the students a great opportunity to get involved in many different activities. Routt plays Basketball and Volleyball in the Routt Dome. The Rocket Football team plays their varsity home games at the Illinois College England Stadium. Baseball games are played at Alumni Field, Softball is played at the YMCA, and swimming events are primarily held at Illinois College, but occasionally they are at other locations in town.
