Athletic competition engages students at a variety of ages and levels. While competition is still an important factor in shaping athletic abilities, skill development and love of the sport 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.
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.
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 department office the following forms:
- FHSAA Pre-participation Physical Evaluation (EL2)
- FHSAA Consent and Release from Liability Certificate (EL3)
- Parent Conduct Covenant (found in the SRCS Athletic Handbook)
- Affirmation of Reading the Athletic Policy Handbook (found in the SRCS Athletic Handbook)
All student-athletes are required to complete the NFHS Concussion in Sports, Heat Illness Prevention, and Sudden Cardiac Arrest courses prior to the beginning of any sport in which that student participates. Multi-sport student-athletes only need to complete the course once per school year. By signing the EL3, student-athletes and parents/guardians are confirming they met the course requirement.
