ACADEMIC ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS: The student must pass all classes (minimum of 5) at the end of each grading period (semester grades are used at end of the 2nd and 4th 9-week period). Students must be enrolled in 5 classes. Exceptions are available for a senior on-line to graduate. Seniors must be enrolled in a minimum of 4 classes. Contact the athletic office for clarification.
ATTENDANCE BOUNDARIES: The student-athlete must live within the school attendance area. If the student-athlete does not live in the attendance area, they must have an approved open enrollment form on file and meet additional requirements set forth by the Arizona Interscholastic Association. See the school or district athletic director for further information.
CHARTER SCHOOLS: Charter school students are not eligible to participate in athletics for any other school. They are only eligible at the school they attend. If the sport is not offered at their school, they are still not eligible to participate at any other school. This is an Arizona Interscholastic Association Bylaw.
HOME SCHOOLED: Home schooled students must be registered with the State Department of Education. If registered, home schooled students are eligible in the school district in which they reside. Home schooled students must meet all other conditions of athletic eligibility including academic requirements.
AGE LIMIT: If a student becomes 19 years of age after September 1st, they are eligible to compete for the remainder of the school year. A student athlete is only eligible for eight semesters from the time of enrollment in the 9th grade. The 7th and 8th semesters must be consecutive.
