Each participant must maintain good attendance and strong academic standing. Athletes make sure an eligibility report is completed each week for the following week’s game eligibility — it is their responsibility to make sure this is completed. The Athletic Director and administration reserve the right to reconsider eligibility at any time.
The district will provide Bus transportation to and from away games. If a parent/guardian chooses to bring a student home from the away game, they must sign the child out with the coach before leaving.
