Eligibility

All Ohio high schools must comply with the Ohio High School Athletic Association guidelines for athletics.  These include:
  1. A student must not be 19 years old before August 1.
  2. In the previous grading period a student must have passed a minimum of 2.5 credits or equivalent which count toward graduation and earned a minimum G.P.A. of 1.0.
  3. Summer school courses and grades do not apply to this requirement.
  4. A student is eligible for eight semesters of athletic participation from his/her enrollment date in grade 9.                                                           
  5. A student may only attend the school where the legal guardian resides.

 

Ross High School has included the additional standard that during the season a student may not be failing more than one subject on a weekly basis and must maintain a cumulative G.P.A. of 1.0.   If a student is failing more than one subject he/she is ineligible until the following week when grades will be checked again.  Ineligibility for three weeks during a season would result in removal from the team.  Our additional requirement was added to ensure academic progress during the season and to prevent a failing student playing until the quarter ends.  Should you have any questions, please contact the athletic director, Brian Gunter.
