    Academic Eligibility for Athletics and Extracurricular Activities

    In order to participate in athletic activities, a student must be enrolled in five (5) courses and physical education. The Niagara Frontier League requires that all student-athletes pass four (4) subjects and physical education to compete in a sport. These credits and grades must be carried in the semester prior to the one in which he/she wishes to compete.

    Students ruled ineligible due to grades may re-establish eligibility at the end of the next 10-week marking period. All eligibility decisions are made by the building principal. **NOTE: PARTICIPATION IN ANY EXTRACURRICULAR OR ATHLETIC ACTIVITY MAY BE DENIED BASED ON STUDENT'S GRADES, ATTENDANCE OR SCHOOL CITIZENSHIP.
