Philosophy and Rules
Athletics is a very important aspect of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary School community. Participation in athletics teaches our student/athletes many important values and lessons that they can take with them long after they have graduated from Our Lady of the Holy Rosary School.
While participation in athletics is important, academic performance by our student/athletes is the top priority. Students need to make academics a priority and at minimum need to keep a 75% average in all academic subjects and a “B” in behavior to remain eligible for athletics.
Behavior and effort in all school activities is very important and will be weighed heavily when determining student eligibility.
Athletes are to remain positive toward their coaches and always show respect not only to our own school coaches, but to coaches from other schools as well.
Improvement in grades, behavior, and attitude will also be taken into account when determining athletic eligibility.
The principal and staff determine athletic eligibility, with the principal making the final decision regarding athletic eligibility.
When determining athletic eligibility, each student will be held to the standards of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary School Athletic Participation Grade Policy in the Parent/Student Handbook.
All athletes and non-athletes (spectators) associated with Our Lady of the Holy Rosary School are to represent Our Lady of the Holy Rosary School to the highest degree of good will and sportsmanship.
Athletic Participation Grade Policy
At the end of the first grading period student/athletes not performing satisfactory work according to standards set forth by their teachers will be placed on academic probation. Any student placed on academic probation will not be able to participate or try-out for the next season of sports unless satisfactory improvement has been made by the student/athlete.
The principal has the sole discretion to rule a student/athlete eligible or ineligible at any time based on special circumstances.
All athletes on probation, who do not make an effort to improve and whose class performance becomes considerably worse, may be taken off the team by their teacher with the approval of the principal.
