Student Eligibility Policy

volleyball girls All athletes must understand that grades are very important to playing: No Pass, No Play. The Academy of Tucson reserves the right to limit after school district sponsored activities for any student whose grades require attention. The student athlete is required to maintain a minimum 2.0 grade point average on a 4.0 scale and have no current F’s in any class. Student athletes who are academically ineligible may practice with the team but not participate in interscholastic contests or travel with the team. Academic eligibility will be determined on a weekly basis. Once an athlete is determined ineligible he/she will be ineligible for all contests that week. All student athletes are required to attend school the day following a game particularly after away games. (“Being tired” is never an excuse for missing school.) Failure to do so will result in a one game suspension. Medical/injury exemptions permitted.

Student athletes must not engage in any behavior in violation of the student code of conduct or behavior which is disruptive of the athletic activity or event in which the student athlete is participating in or which constitutes a violation of any law or ordinance involving an act of violence, or dishonesty. The student athlete must comply with these standards of personal behavior through the entire twelve-month calendar year. Failure to do so will subject the student to disciplinary measures, which may include suspension and/or expulsion from participation in the student athletic program. The athletic director shall determine disciplinary measures, after consultation with the head coach.
