Important items to consider:
  • Students may tryout for multiple sports, but can only participate in one. However, once the student commits to a sport he/she can no longer tryout for another. If a student is cut after tryouts, the student is free to tryout for another sport assuming the tryouts for the additional sport is still available.
  • A specified amount of playing time is never guaranteed.
  • Contests and practices are rarely held on Sundays and holidays, practice sessions are sometimes scheduled during school vacation periods.
  • For some of The NCLA sports teams, “cuts” may be necessary.
  • NO SPECIAL FAVORS/EXCUSES, it is the student's responsibility for academic work, particularly in cases where classes are missed for game participation.
  • In the event that a student is participating on a The NCLA team and an out-of-school team, club, and/or activity concurrently, coaches expect The NCLA team to take priority if there is a conflict.
  • Each student must be currently and fully enrolled to participate in any sports activity and must be in school at least half of the day on each game day.
  • The school team is the athlete’s priority. An athlete may not miss any school athletic activity as listed above to participate in a non-school athletic event (i.e. – Travel teams, AAU, Recreational teams, etc.).
  • Any student who is disciplined in other areas of school life is subject to suspension from the athletic program to be determined by the Coach, Athletic Director and/or Administration.
  • The student will replace lost, damaged, or broken equipment and/or uniforms.
    • Parents of athletes who do not return uniforms or damage uniforms will be billed for the cost of replacing these uniforms. If restitution is not made for the lost and/or damaged items, the student athlete is not eligible to participate in any further school athletic activity.
  • All paperwork must be submitted and on file before the start of Tryouts.
  • There is a $35.00 dollar fee per student, per sport, this will be collected after the first week of practices once cuts, if any, have been made.

  • The NCLA will not provide transportation to all regularly scheduled away games, unless
    otherwise noted. Parents are solely responsible for getting their athlete to and from games and practices.
    • This means that if a student is late or cannot make it to a practice/game it will likely affect his/her playing time.

Academic Eligibility:
  • Failure (F) of a unit of study during the previous marking period may make the student/athlete ineligible for athletics in the succeeding marking period.
  • During the current marking period, any student whose grade drops below a D for his/her overall average for the quarter, will not be allowed to practice or play until that grade is back to passing.
  • Coaches are required to pass out and collect The NCLA Grade Report Form. The student-athlete is required and responsible for having their teachers/instructors fill out this form.
  • If the student athlete fails to get the form filled out s/he will not be allowed to participate in any athletic activity.
  • A student athlete may not participate in an athletic event if he/she has received an office referral that results in disciplinary action on game day, or anytime during the season.
    • First offense – one game suspension
    • Second offense – three game suspension
    • Third offense – removal from the team

School Attendance and Athletic Participation:
  • Students who receive in-school or out-of-school suspension will not be allowed to participate that day.
  • Students returning from athletic trips or late night games are expected to be on time for school the next day and not “sleeping in,” causing them to miss classes.
