Sports Participation

 

Academic Standing

A student must maintain a Grade of A through C in all subjects. Grades will be reviewed at mid-term and at the end of each trimester. If a student falls below this level in any subject at either of these times, the student will be removed from participation in co-curricular activities. A student may request a re-evaluation from the teacher(s) four weeks after the report card is given. If the student earns a passing grade at the evaluation, eligibility may be restored and the student may participate once again. Third trimester grades will determine the student’s eligibility for the first trimester of the following year.
 

Conduct

Any student who does not demonstrate satisfactory conduct in all subjects will not be allowed to participate in co-curricular activities.  Refer to the SHS Code of Conduct, pages 16 - 17 in this Handbook. The same rules apply as are listed in the guidelines for Academic Standing.

 

Effort

Any student who does not demonstrate satisfactory effort in all subjects will not be allowed to participate in co-curricular activities. Refer to the SHS Code of Conduct, pages 16 - 17 in this Handbook. The same rules apply as are listed in the guidelines for Academic Standing.

Missing Practices & Games

Students are asked to stay dedicated to their commitment to Wildcat Sports. Those that miss games or practices, and the absence is not excused, will be asked to volunteer at the following meet or game and not take part in the activity. If the student athlete does not attend the game or event following a missed practice , this volunteer duty has not yet been served. Until this volunteer service is met, they can not participate.

Athletic Fees

Athletes are asked to pay $65 per sport. These fees are budgeted by the athletic department and only used for departmental needs. These fees are due before their first game in participating sport.
