Student Athletics Eligibility Requirements
All Junior High & High School students must meet eligibility requirements and complete required forms to participate in athletic programs.
Academic Eligibility Requirements
The student must pass all classes (minimum of 5) at the end of each grading period and not carry any "Unsatisfactory", "Incomplete" and have a GPA of 2.0 or higher. Students must be enrolled in 5 classes. Exceptions are available for a senior online to graduate. Seniors must be enrolled in a minimum of 4 classes. Contact the school's athletic office for clarification.
The student-athlete must live within the school attendance area. If the student-athlete does not live in the attendance area, they must have an approved open enrollment form on file and meet additional requirements set forth by the Arizona Interscholastic Association. See the school or district athletic director for further information.
Charter school students are not eligible to participate in athletics for any other school. They are only eligible at the school they attend. If the sport is not offered at their school, they are still not eligible to participate at any other school. This is an Arizona Interscholastic Association Bylaw.
Home-schooled students must be registered with the State Department of Education. If registered, homeschooled students are eligible in the school district in which they reside. Home-schooled students must meet all other conditions of athletic eligibility including academic requirements.
If a student becomes 19 years of age after September 1st, they are eligible to compete for the remainder of the school year. A student athlete is only eligible for eight semesters from the time of enrollment in the 9th grade. The 7th and 8th semesters must be consecutive.
