Athletic competition engages students at a variety of ages and levels. While competition is still an important factor in shaping athletic abilities, skill development is more strongly emphasized at the entry levels. Emphasis on competition increases for Junior Varsity and Varsity athletics. Sports at the high school level are very competitive, and winning is an objective of each team. Due to both the competitive nature and limited roster space, pre-season tryouts may be necessary.
Academic Eligibility: In accordance with the FHSAA bylaws, a student must maintain a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 to be eligible to participate in interscholastic athletic competition. This requirement applies to full-time SRCS students and home-school students.
Physical Eligibility: Prior to participation in any form of athletic or team-related conditioning session, tryout, or practice, the student must have on file in the athletic office the following forms: FHSAA Pre-participation Physical Evaluation (EL2), FHSAA Consent and Release from Liability Certificate (EL3), FHSAA Consent and Release from Liability Certificate for Concussion and Heat-Related Illness (EL3CH), Parent Conduct Covenant (found in the SRCS Athletic Handbook), and Affirmation of Reading the Athletic Policy Handbook (found in the SRCS Athletic Handbook).
NCAA Eligibility Center
Prospective student athletes interested in participating in intercollegiate athletics at an NCAA Division I, II, or III institution must register with the NCAA Eligibility Center. Registration materials may be accessed at NCAA Eligibility website
. Click on "NCAA College-Bound Student-Athletes," found on the home page, which will direct you to the necessary information.
Interested students should register with the NCAA Eligibility Center after the completion of their junior year in high school, when a transcript that includes six semesters of grades should be sent to the Eligibility Center from SRCS. To have a transcript sent, students must complete an SRCS Transcript Request form and submit it to the Academic Advisor. Additionally, when registering for the SAT or ACT, students should request that their test scores be forwarded directly to the Eligibility Center by entering code "9999" as a reporting selection.
