Student Athletic Passes

sports various

Did you know that DC Homeschool students may attend DC Home games at no charge using their student IDs?   Yes, this is tricky since the football season has already started and we do not receive our new IDs until October 6 (Picture Day).  Dayton Christian Athletics to the Rescue!  If you contact Kristin Blatz, the Athletic Office Administrative Assistant, she will print a pass for your student(s) that will admit them to the Home games.  Email with your student’s name and grade and she will supply you with passes.  You may pick up the passes in the Athletic Office or during EXCEL.
