Athletic Eligibility Policy

All Middle School students (grades 5-8) must maintain a passing grade (above an “F”) in each class in which they are enrolled during their Monte Cassino team’s athletic season. Grade checks will occur every Friday during the year. Students determined to be ineligible will remain ineligible until the subsequent grade check in which they are determined eligible. This means that once a student has been determined ineligible, she/he will remain so for at least one week, until the subsequent grade check is performed.

Ineligible players may continue to practice but cannot participate in athletic contests or scrimmages against other teams until they become eligible.

List of 3 items.

  • Tutorial

    All players with a grade of “D” or below, in any class, will be required to attend Tutorial for that particular class, Monday through Thursday 3:05 pm- 3:30 pm, until the grade is above a “D.” Students with a “D” who remain above an “F” will remain eligible for games and practices. However, tutorial is mandatory even when games and/or practices occur during Tutorial time. Tutorial students are required to turn in a Tutorial Sign-in Form, signed by the teacher, to the Director of Athletics each Friday.
  • Disruptive Behavior

    Behavioral issues which occur on campus during and after school may also be grounds for ineligibility or other athletic penalties based on the discretion of the Middle School Principal and the Director of Athletics.
  • Effects on Participation

    Missed practices due to academic or behavioral infractions may result in reduced playing time and is managed at the Coach’s discretion.
