Eligibility for Interscholastic Sports


I.            In order to be eligible to play for an interscholastic team a student:

A.   Must have passed a minimum of four (4) units of work* at the end of the previous marking period and achieved grades of 70 or above in three of these.

B.    Eligibility status is determined on the day that official report cards are distributed to students.

C.    An incomplete is not considered a passing grade for purposes of eligibility.

D.   Students may not use summer school to change a failing grade to a passing one.

E.    Students may use summer school to improve a passing grade to 70 or above.

II.          All students need to be aware of the athletic expectations for a particular sport. Athletes should ask their coaches for a list of expectations before a problem arises.

III.        All incoming Freshmen and students new to CHS must have a current physical received by Concord High School prior to the first day of tryouts.  PHYSICALS MUST NOT BE OLDER THAN ONE YEAR FROM THE START OF THE SEASON. Students are encouraged to see their own physicians for a thorough exam and to bring or mail to the athletic director written documentation of the exam, including the doctor’s name, date of the exam and any physical limitations that may apply.  Only one physical is required throughout the high school years. If you have not yet done so, please forward your physical to the CHS Athletic Office, 170 Warren Street, Concord, NH 03301.

IV.        Student members of athletic teams are not eligible to participate in an interscholastic contest on a day they are absent from school due to illness, class cuts or truancy.

V.          In addition, students are required to complete a health questionnaire EACH TIME THEY GO OUT FOR A SPORT. These forms are distributed by the coaches and screened by the athletic trainer. They should be as accurate as possible with regards to the student’s health history and must be signed by a parent or guardian. Students who have had recent surgery, injuries or illness must provide the athletic department with a doctor’s note indicating that they are medically approved to participate.

For further information, students are advised to refer to the NHIAA Handbook and consult their coach, or call the Director of Physical Education and Sport, 225-0819.
