Any Corona del Sol student who wishes to compete in athletic contests with other schools must first take home an athletic card that must be signed (and notarized) by the student’s parents/legal guardians, giving permission for the student to participate.
No student shall be eligible to represent his/her high school in any practice or athletic contest if a physical examination card is not on file with the Athletic Director. The physical examination card must be signed by an MD, a DO, or a PNP and include notification that, in the opinion of the examining physician, the athlete is fully able to compete in athletic contests.
If the athlete becomes 19 years of age after September 1, he/she is eligible to compete for the remainder of that school year. If the athlete becomes 19 years of age on or before September 1, he/she is not eligible for any part of that school year. A certified copy of the birth certificate shall be required of all contestants.
A student must have received a passing grade in the preceding nine-weeks of school in each of five or more subjects. Thereafter, the athlete must be enrolled in and passing a minimum of five (5) classes (not including study hall; only credit-earning classes can be counted as one of the five (5) classes for eligibility) throughout the time of eligibility. Exception: A student in their seventh or eighth semester of enrollment, meeting all graduation requirements, must be enrolled in a minimum of four (4) courses.
In cases where a student is out of school for a period of more than ten (10) consecutive days for reasons other than the disabling illness of the athlete or a member of their immediate family, the athlete shall be ineligible for the remainder of the semester.
Competition on Only One School Team
Any student playing on any team other than their high school’s team during the school season of the same sport, shall be barred from further interscholastic participation in that same sport for the same season.
Eight Semester Rule
No student who has been enrolled in grades 9-12 inclusive for more than eight semesters will compete in any interscholastic contest.
To obtain an equipment card for participation in your chosen sport, the following steps must be taken:
1. Physical Form and Emergency Card
Complete a 2014-15 physical form and emergency card that is available in the Athletics Office. Annual 2014-2015 Physical Examination Part Two Form 15.7-A and Part Three Form 15.7-B are to be completed and signed by the examining medical provider in two different locations on the white physical card, with exam dated on or after March 1, 2014 indicating that the student is cleared for sports. NOTE: only a signature from a Medical Doctor (M.D.), a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.), or a Professional Nurse Practitioner (PNP) will be acceptable.
Insurance must be provided for you by your parent/legal guardian or through an accidental insurance policy. The insurance purchased at the school is secondary to that of the parent/legal guardian. Should you wish to purchase coverage, this may be done in the Athletics Office.
3. Birth Certificate
Take your birth certificate to the Athletics Office where a copy will be made and placed on file.
4. Pick up Equipment Card
Take the 2014-15 physical card (completed and signed by the doctor), your parent’s/legal guardian’s notarized signature, either the receipt for insurance or the insurance waiver card, and your birth certificate to the Athletics Office. The cards and a copy of your birth certificate will be kept in the Athletics Office. An equipment card will be given to you beginning Wednesday July 28th.
5. Give Cards to Your Coach
Take the yellow equipment card and blue emergency card to your coach when practice begins.
If you go out for another sport, you must pick up your equipment card from the equipment manager, and sign up again in the Athletics Office. Remember that you are borrowing the equipment from the school. Please take care of it as if it were your own. You are responsible for washing uniforms during the season and keeping them in good condition.
NOTE: If you received equipment the preceding school year and did not return it or did not pay for the replacement of any lost or damaged equipment, additional equipment will not be loaned to you.
