Eligibility

Under Board Policy 6203.H, students who have transferred from a previously assigned or chosen school may not participate in athletics at their new school for 365 days. You may apply for a waiver of this policy: appeal for athletic participation for transferred/reassigned students (English, en español). Students entering the ninth grade for the first time are eligible to participate in athletic activities and are not required to file an appeal.

Insurance

Proof of insurance coverage is required for all athletes. WCPSS provides limited-benefit accident coverage for high school athletes and voluntary coverage for all students. Learn more at our student insurance page.

Beyond high school

Student-athletes hoping to continue participating in college should familiarize themselves with the NCAA's eligibility requirements. Intercollegiate athletics is extremely competitive, with a small percentage of high school athletes going on to the college level (information provided by the NCAA). Our athletics programs supplement our schools' mission: career and college academic readiness.

Interested in getting a new sport at your student's high school? We're giving our parents and students the opportunity to share their recommendations through our online Sports Interest Form. You can also request expanding (JV, 9th grade) the existing program levels that are currently offered at the high school.
