Student-Eligibility for Interscholastic Athletics
According to NYSPHSAA regulations, a student shall be eligible for interscholastic competition provided he/she is a bona fide student in good standing of the represented school, taking four subjects including physical education. A student shall be eligible for only four years in one sport, in consecutive years, upon entering the ninth grade, unless advanced by selective classification.
A student who reaches the age of 19 before July 1 may not participate in interscholastic athletics. For modified programs, the student is eligible upon entering the seventh grade.
Each individual team has its own regulations concerning daily attendance at practices and the minimum number of practices before being eligible for competition. Your coach will inform you of these rules.
