  • No student shall be allowed to participate in more than one (1) interscholastic sport, which runs concurrently during the same sports season with the exception of the following: a student playing another sport may also participate in football as a punter or kicker only.

  • The student must actively participate in practice for a period not less than seven (7) practice days prior to participation in an actual interscholastic athletic contest.

Exceptions are limited to the following: (a). Students who transfer prior to attending the first school day in grade nine, (b). Students who transfer to participate in a sport not offered at the school of domicile.

    4.Non-Resident tuition students are ineligible for athletics for 45 calendar days from the date the Superintendent approves their request to attend as a tuition student.

    Superintendent/designee.

    90 – 100 – A = 4 pts

    80 – 89 – B = 3 pts

    70 - 79 - C = 2 pts

    60 - 69 - D = 1 pt *

    59 or below F = 0 pts

    * Calculated only for athletic/extracurricular eligibility

    Any student earning more than one (1) failing grade (F), will be declared ineligible to participate in athletics. Any student receiving less than a 2.0 GPA for a quarter grade check shall become ineligible to participate.
