Please review the Middle School Athletic Checklist as a guide when preparing your student for sports.

In previous years, middle school athletics has followed the high school athletic eligibility requirements.  Students had to maintain a 2.0 GPA without any failing grades (meaning that they could still participate with a C- or D in a class).  This year, middle school athletes must maintain a “C-” in every class to be eligible to play.  A grade report will be pulled every other Friday during 5th period (Friday, 9/25).   Coaches will be notified of any athletes not meeting the grade requirement and they will notify the athlete that they are not eligible for participation.  Athletes not meeting the requirements will be on a two-week probation period to get the grade to a “C” or above.  If the athlete has not met the requirements after the two week probation period, they will possibly be removed from the team.
