Athletic Participation Forms and Rules

Participation Rules

To participate, students must be enrolled in athletics the semester before the sport they wish to play, meet all academic requirements and credits, maintain acceptable behavior in the classroom, and agree to abide by the rules and guidelines outlined in the athletic policy.  They must go through off-season the semester before their sport to ensure they are prepared physically and mentally for the task ahead, and to keep the risk of injury to a minimum.  Try-outs are conducted for each team sport and are subject to the criteria set by the head coach for that particular sport.
