“No Cuts, Everyone Plays” in Middle School

Student-Athletes at the middle school level are at varying stages of development and ability. Because of this, St. Mary Catholic Middle School proudly enforces the “No Cuts, Everyone Plays” policy. In addition, at the St. Mary Catholic Middle School level, parents of participating students are expected to help at home games in the concession stand, at the gate and/or at the scoring table.

Academic Eligibility in Middle School

Academic eligibility for all middle school students is determined by a grade check at the mid-quarter and nine-week grading periods. Students must maintain a minimum of a C- average with no failing grades. If the GPA is below a C- average (1.67 GPA), student will meet with an academic advisor and an individual plan will be decided upon and shared with the student’s parents and teachers. Should a student fail to complete his/her individual improvement plan, social and/or athletic restrictions will be imposed.
