Athletic Eligibility

Meeting the academic requirements for athletic eligibility is the responsibility of the student.  The TSSAA requires students to earn at least 6 credits during the preceding school year to participate in athletics.  Students whose 19th birthday is on or before August 1st may not participate in athletics.  To be eligible as 9th graders, students must be academically promoted to the next grade.

Students interested in competing in athletics during their initial year of college must meet the eligibility requirements set by the NCAA. These requirements include specific high school coursework, along with a minimum Grade Point Average and ACT/SAT score. Students should register with the NCAA Eligibility Center during their junior year and complete registration at www.eligibilitycenter.org. To view requirements, you should visit the website below.

Certain courses will not count for NCAA core course requirements. Bridge Math, for example, is not an approved fourth year math course. Credit Recovery courses are not approved for core courses by the NCAA Eligibility Center.  Please remember that the NCAA only considers grades in core classes for eligibility purposes.
