Academic Requirements for Participation in Sports

All middle school student-athletes must maintain a minimum of a 2.0 GPA. A semester or cumulative GPA may be used to determine eligibility. The academic advisor/coach will notify the parents of a student athlete if his or her grades for the CURRENT marking period fall below the minimum requirement of 2.0 GPA and will develop an appropriate tutoring plan on a case by case basis while the athlete is benched from competition. While student athletes will remain a part of the team, some or all of practice time will be dedicated to tutoring and supporting the student athlete to meet the minimum GPA requirement.

Athletic Forms and Information

All students who plan to try out for a middle school sport must have the following completed forms on file in the nurse's office. Participation forms must be completely filled in and properly signed, attesting that the student has been examined and found to be physically fit for athletic competition and that his or her parents consent to participation. The forms are also available in the main office at the school.
