Student-Athlete Expectations: Representing CCSC as a student-athlete is a privilege.  Student-athletes who fail to uphold school standards will be removed from the team.  This includes, but is not limited to, violating the behavioral standards set forth in the discipline code and/or the academic standards required of student athletes for participation.  A student will not be allowed to practice or play on days when he/she does not attend school.

Every student-athlete will:
• Must maintain a 73 average across all credit-bearing courses
• Have had a physical no more than 13 months prior to the start of each sports season (fall, winter, spring).
• Adhere to the same behavioral expectations as students in CCSC
classrooms .
• Meet the sportsmanship expectations outlined by the MCSAO.
• Attend all team-related activities.
A student-athlete’s continued participation is subject to the principals’ and athletic director’s discretion about whether the student has met the above requirements. Suspended students will not be permitted to participate in practice or attend games on the days they are serving a suspension.

Attendance Policy: Students who do not attend school are ineligible to practice or play that day.  Students who are tardy to school may be allowed to play as long as they have arrived at school before 10 a .m .

Academic Eligibility Policy: In order to participate in official league sponsored athletic competition, students must maintain a 73 average across credit-bearing courses. Students must also be passing all non-credit-bearing courses (art, WAM, learning lab, etc.) with a grade of 70 or higher. Students in double-block humanities classes will have that class count twice toward their numerical average. 

During the fall season, student-athletes will be removed from their team if they fail to achieve above a 73 average at three eligibility check-points. During the winter season, student-athletes will be removed from their team if they fail to achieve above a 73 average at four eligibility check-points.  During the spring season, student-athletes will be removed from their team if they fail to achieve above a 73 average at three eligibility check-points.
