RULES OF ELIGIBILITY

1. Academic Eligibility

ELIGIBILITY - Lamoille Union Middle School recognizes and promotes the priority of academics within our athletic and student activities programs. While extracurricular activities are an important part of education, academic success remains the primary focus. Coaches and advisors support this position, and will make every effort to accommodate students’ needs as they balance academics with extracurricular activities. It is essential that students and parents understand the following academic eligibility standards.

● Students receiving 1’s (Beginning/Attempting Standards) or 1E (Insufficient Evidence) in two classes during or from a preceding marking period will be placed on academic probation. While on probation, a student will be permitted to practice and/or meet with his/her team or group, but may not dress in uniform, travel with the team/group or participate in any games or meets.

● For all fall sports, eligibility for 8th graders will be determined by their final grades (trimester/quarter) from the previous school year. Students on academic probation for a fall sport will be permitted to practice and/or meet with his/her team or group, but may not dress in uniform, travel with the team/group or participate in any games or meets. Grades will be checked at the first progress report time to determine eligibility for the remainder of the season.

● All students placed on academic probation will have their grades reviewed by the Team and Athletic/Activities Director; at progress report and report card time. If academic requirements are met, they will be reinstated to full participation. If grades remain below the requirements, they will be deemed ineligible, and may not practice, participate or compete for the remainder of the season.

● Students who receive 1’s and/or 1E’s in three or more classes during or from the preceding marking period are ineligible to participate or compete in athletics/interscholastic sports. At progress report/report card time, if students are still receiving 1’s and 1E’s in three or more classes they are ineligible to participate for the remainder of the season. If they are receiving 1’s or 1E’s in two or fewer classes, they will be placed on academic probation for the remainder of the season. While on probation, a student will be permitted to practice and/or meet with his/her team or group, but may not dress in uniform, travel with the team/group or participate in any games or meets. Grades will be reviewed by the Team and Athletic/Activities Director at progress report and report card time for academic eligibility requirements.

● Extenuating circumstances will be reviewed/determined by the school’s administrators.

2. Conduct Eligibility

Again, athletic participation “is a privilege”. As athletes, you accept responsibility for your actions during and after school hours. As you travel around the state, you are our LUMS student representatives. Therefore, behaviors that result in office referrals, detentions, suspensions and/or unexcused absences must be dealt with directly. The following discipline criteria will be used for all middle level student athletes:

● 1st Incident resulting in a Detention, Classes Only, or an unexcused absence: student will miss the following game or an entire race or meet.

● 2nd Incident resulting in a Detention, Classes Only,1st In-School Suspension or unexcused absence: student will miss the 2 subsequent games, races or meet.

● 3rd Incidents resulting in Detention, Classes Only, 2nd In-School Suspension, an Out of School Suspension or 3rd unexcused absence: student will be suspended from the team.

3. Participation Information 

Prior to engaging in practice and/or game activities, a student must submit the following information:

● Proof of a completed physical within the last 2 years.

● Proof of insurance.

● Signed copy of the Athletic Code Agreement.

● Attended seven practices before they compete in a game or competition
