Mastery Athletes are held to the highest academic standards of any students in Philadelphia. Mastery Athletes are not allowed to fail more than one class (76%) to be eligible to compete in games/competitions. In order to tryout for a team, student athletes must meet the semester grade requirements listed below. Once a student athlete makes a team, then their eligibility will be assessed weekly by looking at their current report period grade. Assessing grades weekly gives students a week to bring up their grades, and results in them only missing one week of games if they are ineligible during any one week.
In order to tryout for a team students must meet the following eligibility requirements:
- Fall Sports: Students are eligible to tryout for a fall sport if they have successfully matriculated to the next grade.
- Winter Sports: Students are eligible to tryout for winter sports if their cumulative semester 1 grade (RP 1 & 2) is at least a 76%
- Spring Sports: Students are eligible to tryout for spring sports if their cumulative semester 1 grade (RP 1, 2 & 3) is at least a 76%
A student athlete’s grades at the end of a report period, and thus on their report card, will serve as their eligibility for the first 15 school days of the following report period. If a student is passing all but one class at the end of a report period, and thus on their report card, then that student is eligible to compete for the first 15 school days of the following report period. After the first 15 school days of the report period the student’s eligibility will be decided by weekly eligibility reports.
If a student athlete is failing two or more classes at the end of a report period, but they are eligible to tryout because of their cumulative grade, then that student is ineligible to participate in athletics for 15 school days. This includes:
- No practice for the first 10 school days
- The student will be allowed to start practicing with the team after 10 school days as long as they are passing all but one class after the 10 days (allowed to fail one class). If not after the 10 school days, then they will not be able to practice until after the 15th school day.
- The student is able to play in games after the 15th school day as long as weekly eligibility is met.
After the first 10 school days of a report period, Athletic Directors will check player eligibility weekly by running failure reports for the current report period by Tuesday morning at 9:30am. If a student athlete is failing two or more classes (76% or below) in the current report period, then that student is ineligible for that week.
Student Athlete Weekly Ineligibility includes:
- The student will not play in or dress for any games for that week
- The student is allowed to practice with the team as long as they meet all teacher requirements for office hours, homework help or missed work prior to practice.
- The student is not allowed to be dismissed early from school for games
- The student is not allowed to travel with the team
Ineligibility as a result of behavior will be determined by the Athletic Director, Principal, and Assistant Principal of School Culture. The APSC will send the Athletic Director the names of any student athletes who have received a behavior violation, and the consequences will be as follows;
- If a student receives one Level II violation, the Principal, Assistant Principal of School Culture, and/or Athletic Director / MS Athletic Coordinator may elect to suspend a student from competition. A student in this scenario may continue to practice with his/her team, but should not travel nor attend the game.
- If a student receives a second Level II, then they will be suspended from two games. (No travel. Not allowed at the game).
- If a student receives a third Level II, The Principal, Assistant Principal of School Culture, and Athletic Director / MS Athletic Coordinator are expected to meet and determine if the student should be removed from the team for the duration of the season. If the answer is “no”, specific criteria should be communicated to the student / family regarding expectations to be able to continue as an active player.
- If a student receives one Level III violation, then they will be suspended from competition for the remainder of that season. (No travel. Not allowed at the games). A student in this scenario may continue to practice with his/her team for the remainder of the current athletic season with approval from the Principal, Assistant Principal of School Culture, and/or Athletic Director / MS Athletic Coordinator.
- Any student who is sent to Wayne Academy will not be eligible to compete while attending that campus (No travel. Not allowed at the games), unless the student was sent for reasons unrelated to behavioral violations or disciplinary action. A student attending Wayne Academy may continue to practice with his/her team with approval from the Principal, Assistant Principal of School Culture, and/or Athletic Director / MS Athletic Coordinator.
- A student who returns to his/her home campus after fulfilling requirements at Wayne Academy may rejoin his/her team with full eligibility upon reinstatement, provided all restorative expectations have been met to the satisfaction of the Principal and Assistant Principal of School Culture.
- A student absent on the day of a game or practice will not be allowed to play in that day’s game or participate in that day’s practice. Exception – the absence is a non-medical, excused absence.
- A student arriving late on the day of a game will not be eligible for early dismissal, and will not be allowed to play in that day’s game or travel (if lateness is not an excused lateness).
- A student who is absent for 20 or more days during Report Periods 1 through 3 or Report Periods 3 through 4 may be ineligible to play in any games until they have been in attendance for 45 school days following the student’s 20th day of absence. The athletic director and coach will assess the circumstances for absence and make a ruling that is in accordance with the athletic association’s by-laws.
