Athletic Eligibility - General

  • Participating in your school’s interscholastic athletics program will provide some of your most memorable and enjoyable moments ever. Your state association, the Ohio High School Athletic Association, has standards that must be met in order to be eligible to compete.

    The essential eligibility requirements in this brochure are only a summary of some of the regulations affecting student eligibility. Most requirements are found in the OHSAA Handbook, which can be found in the offices of your principal and athletic administrator. Your school district also has the authority to establish additional academic standards and codes of student or athletic conduct.

    Any questions you have concerning the OHSAA standards or your athletic eligibility should be reviewed with your school principal or athletic administrator. You should also meet with these administrators every time before you change your course schedule or drop a course.

    The eligibility standards of the OHSAA have been adopted by the member schools and were accepted by your school when it became an OHSAA member.

    You are urged, as a student-athlete, to study these standards carefully since you are responsible for compliance with these standards. We want you to enjoy your school years!
