Athletic Eligibility

Athletic Eligibility - Effective Fall 2013 (in addition to CIAC regulations)

Season

Eligibility Requirements

Fall

Student athletes must have earned a 70% average with no final grade course failures for the previous school year. All ninth graders are eligible for fall sports. To maintain eligibility during the fall season, student athletes must earn a 70% average with no course failures for the first marking period.

Winter

Student athletes must have earned a 70% average with no course failures for the first marking period. To maintain eligibility during the winter season, student athletes must earn a 70% average with no course failures for the second marking period.

Spring

Student athletes must have earned a 70% average with no course failures for the second marking period. To maintain eligibility during the spring season, student athletes must earn a 70% average with no course failures for the third marking period.

In all cases, the grades that appear on the student athlete’s report card will be those used in determining eligibility. Again, eligibility for the fall season is determined by final course grades from the previous school year. Eligibility for winter and spring seasons will be based on marking period grades.
