Athletic Eligibility

All students are encouraged to participate in the MacLaren athletic program and/or the other organizations that sponsor organized activities. However, academic responsibilities are always the top priority. In addition, student athletes and students taking part in non-athletic activities are public representatives of MacLaren, which makes disciplinary matters relevant. Students may be removed from teams or clubs for academic or disciplinary reasons. For example, students who accumulate 1.5 hours of detention in one semester may become ineligible for extracurriculars that semester, including athletics. The Head of School oversees this process.

Moreover, students involved in any MacLaren extracurricular club or sport need to remain academically eligible for participation. The Academic Coordinator, in conjunction with Faculty members will review rosters and advise the Head of School of any student with deficiencies. Several factors may be taken into consideration when determining student eligibility, including academic standing and effort to improve deficient grades. Eligibility is reviewed weekly.

A drop in GPA to 2.0 or below will cause a student to become ineligible.
If a student gets a deficiency (D or F), they are at risk of becoming ineligible. Any deficiency that shows no improvement may cause a student to become ineligible.

Students who become ineligible may not attend practices or games until their academic eligibility is restored when performance is reviewed the next week.
