Athletic Eligibility

  •  ELIGIBILITY FOR CONTINUING FALL ATHLETES WILL BE DETERMINED BY SECOND SEMESTER REPORT CARDS.

    • Students must meet eligibility requirements in order to participate in extra-curricular activities. Eligibility will include academic and citizenship standards. Ineligibility will be in effect until grades are issued after the end of the next quarter grade. Students ineligible at the end of the previous school year will remain ineligible for the first quarter of the current school year unless the student attends Summer school and makes up the grades that are keeping the GPA under 2.0. The following list represents the eligibility requirements to participate on sports teams at Salinas High School:
      • Academic- students must maintain a 2.0 GPA and no more than 1 “F”
      • Citizenship- students may have a maximum of 1 "UN" to remain eligible
    • For the 2020-2021 school year, no student that was ineligible was allowed to sign a contract.  There has been no word if eligibility contracts will be restored for the 2021-22 school year.  Once given direction, it will be posted on this website.
    • Each student must register on athleticclearance.com and fill out information on medical insurance. If any student does not have proof of insurance, supplemental insurance is available to purchase through a private company. Information is available at the school site. To sign up online please visit Myers-Stevens Medical Insurance.
