STUDENT/ATHLETE ELIGIBILITY:


  • Incoming freshmen must have insurance to participate in summer conditioning. After purchase, print the receipt and submit to the athletics office. June 24, 2016 – last date to purchase 9th grade Summer Conditioning Insurance (only available online) https://www.hsri.com/K12_Enrollment/Main/

  • All students-athletes must have a physical on file before participating in any interscholastic activity, including but not limited to try-outs, off-season conditioning, and/or competition.

  • The physical must be documented on the Miami-Dade County Public Schools physical form completed, including the Consent and Release from Liability Certificate and notarized.

  • All student-athletes must purchase school insurance prior to participating in activities as stated in the Physicals section, including football players. This is for off-season and in-season. If a student-athlete participates in multiple sports, other than football, you need only purchase insurance once.

  • In addition to school insurance, football student-athletes must purchase the catastrophic insurance which is only valid for the football season.

  • In addition to physical and insurance, every student-athlete must provide proof of age (Birth certificate or passport) before the first contest.

  • Students are not permitted to participate in any athletic activities without insurance - NO EXCEPTIONS. Athletic insurance can only be purchased through our Athletics Department.

  • The Athletic Director will determine the eligibility of all athletes, but it is the responsibility of each coach to monitor the grades of their student-athletes and to set up a plan for potential ineligible players. It is the responsibility of the student-athlete to meet the standards for athletic eligibility.

  • FHSAA Rules of Eligibility:  In order for a student-athlete to participate in interscholastic athletics, a student must meet the standards set forth by State statute and the FHSAA.

  • All incoming 9th graders who have been academically promoted from their middle school are eligible to participate the first semester.

  • To be eligible to participate in interscholastic extracurricular activities, students must maintain a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale in all courses attempted, including conduct. These would be all high school courses taken, except those courses to which a forgiveness policy has been applied.

  • If a student in the 9th or l0th grade falls below the 2.0 cumulative GPA, the student will be allowed to participate on a semester-by-semester basis if the student meets these requirements:
    - Earns a 2.0 GPA on all courses taken the previous semester.
    - Signs an academic performance contract with the school.
    - Attends summer school as necessary.


  • Once the student enters the 11th grade, he or she must have and maintain, from that point forward, a 2.0 cumulative GPA to remain eligible.

  • A student-athlete will become ineligible once he/she has accumulated 20 tardies or 10 absences from school.
