Athletic Policies / Eligibility

NO STUDENT ATHLETE IS ALLOWED TO PARTICIPATE in tryouts, practice, or a game without a current / valid physical. Physicals are valid for 13 months (395 days). 
Player Record Packet
CPS requires students to complete a player records packet.  Students will not be allowed to participate until this is completed and turned in.

Academic Eligibility
To be academically eligible for sports, student athletes must have maintained a 2.0 GPA and earned 2.5 credits during the previous semester. In addition, grade reports will be generated on the first school day of each week. If a student is failing a class, they have until the next report to bring their grade up or they will be ineligible for competitions until they do.

Students are expected to attend all team functions. Playing time is 100% at the discretion of the coaching staff. Playing time is not an expectation. Student athletes are expected to be at practice, film sessions, meetings, service projects, etc. But this does not guarantee playing time. Missed practice time for any reason can and will result in a loss of playing time.
Reach out to your athletes' coaches to be included on mailing list or other forms of communication.  They will be your first resource.  Use the team pages tab to obtain more information about the sport your are interested in.
