Eligibility of RMS Athletes

Grades and Eligibility of RMS Athletes  

Any student who is ineligible academically will be suspended from the team until such ineligibility is corrected. All grades will be checked on Mondays or the first day of a school week. On a weekly basis, a student shall maintain a “70/C” average letter grade throughout the student’s course load to be academically eligible to participate in interscholastic activities.   

Any athlete that falls below a 70/C average in any classes will be suspended from participating in any games or contest until the following Monday if the grade is raised to a 70/C passing grade.

Any student that is ineligible for three weeks during that specific season, will be declared ineligible for the remainder of that sports season. School Administration, supervising coaches, and athletic directors will be responsible for ensuring that ineligible players do not participate in games, practices, or team travel.  Coaches are encouraged to discuss the situation with their athlete and arrange for tutoring or study hall sessions to help the athlete with their academics. Athletes must be in the proper grade level at the beginning of each school year. They must also move with their class to the next grade level.
