ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS

  • celebration  

    Welcome to St Paul Central! We are excited to have you on the team and become a part of the rich history of Minutemen Athletics. Central High School encourages every student to participate in athletics. The Minnesota State High School League and the St Paul Public Schools feels membership in any activity is a privilege and demands responsibility. All athletes are expected to follow the eligibility requirements listed below. If an athlete does not follow all requirements, their eligibility may be jeopardized.

     

    1. ACADEMICS- All athletes must make academics their first priority. Student-athletes must earn atleast 20 credits per year to remain eligible to participate in athletics the following year. Student-athletes must also earn a minimum of four credits per quarter to remain eligible. Additional academic eligibility requirements can be found below.
    2. STUDENT CONDUCT- At all times student-athletes represent their team(s) and Central High School. If a student-athlete shows bad judgment or poor behavior they risk their position on the team. Student-athletes should be aware of the following policies that pertain to student conduct:
      1. A student who is dismissed or suspended from school will not be eligible to participate in the next contest until reinstatement occurs
      2. At Central, a student must be in school by 10:00am and have written authorization for their absence. Also, a student must attend school for at least four hours to participate in athletics after school. A student who is marked unexcused the day of the contest will not be allowed to participate.
      3. The Minnesota State High School League and Central High School expect all athletes to remain FREE of illegal chemicals (alcohol, all forms of tobacco and any illegal drugs). This includes use, possession, buying, selling, or distributing any controlled substances, including steroids. Failure to abide by this rule will result in the consequences stated in Article 19 of the Minnesota State High School League General Rules.

     

    • LETTER AWARDS- Central High School Varsity “C” letter awards are awarded upon recommendation of a varsity head coach at the end of the sport’s season.
