Steven Gazdek, Athletic Director
Please see Nurse’s Corner for all sports physical information.
Remember ALL STUDENTS should report to the nurse’s office to see what forms they need in order to try-out and/or participate in a sport.
Even if the student has a physical on file and/or participated in the season prior, they still need paperwork from the nurse’s office in order to try out/participate
Message on Athletic Participation/Eligibility
Students should be aware that there is a statewide and district requirement that, in order for a student "...to be eligible for athletic competition during the first semester (September 1 to January 31) of the 10th grade or higher..., a pupil must have passed 25% of the credits required by the State of New Jersey for graduation (27 1/2 academic credits) during the immediate preceding academic year."
In order for a student "...to be eligible for athletic competition which begins during the second semester (February 1 to June 30) during the 9th grade or higher..., a pupil must have passed the equivalent of 12 1/2% of the credits (or 13 3/4 academic credits) required by the State of New Jersey for graduation (i.e. the student must have passing grades in at least 5 1/2 courses) at the close of the preceding semester (January 31)."
A student turning age 19 prior to September 1 of any year is ineligible for athletic competition from September 1 of that year until he/she graduates (NJSIAA regulation).
