IHSA Eligibility Requirement

The IHSA requires all student-athletes and activity participants to pass 5 classes per week and per semester.
 
 
2.0 Grade Point Average Eligibility

The Rich Township District 227 student-athlete eligibility policy requires that each student-athlete achieve a 2.0 GPA (C average) each quarter or the previous semester in order to participate in an athletic or activity program, including Band and Chorus.  All incoming freshman are eligible to compete during the 2016-2017 fall quarter.  In order to participate in all subsequent seasons, a student must achieve a GPA of 2.0 each quarter or for each semester.  Returning students must have achieved a 2.0 GPA during the fourth quarter or the second semester of the 2015-2016 school year in order to participate in fall athletics.  If you have any questions regarding your student’s eligibility for athletics and activities, please contact the athletic office or inquire with your head coach.

Athletic Physical Examinations

It is mandatory that all athletes, including Cheerleaders and Poms, have a yearly physical examination completed on an IHSA Pre-participation Examination form.  Freshmen can use their school physical medical entrance exam to participate in athletics during the 2016-2017 school year.  The athletic department requires student-athletes to submit original physical exam forms complete with the physician’s office stamp and NOT copies. The deadline for all athletic physicals to be submitted to the athletic office is listed below by season.  Failure to meet the deadline for physical submission will result in your student-athlete being dropped from a roster for the remainder of the season.

 Physical Submission Deadlines
