ATHLETIC ELIGIBILITY

To be eligible for interscholastic competition in any of the sports listed in the following paragraphs, a participant must meet the requirements contained in the West Virginia Secondary School Athletic commission (WVSSAC) Bylaws.

Madonna has adopted the state standards for athletic eligibility. Any student who does not maintain a 2.0 GPA as a semester average, cannot participate in any extra-curricular activities for the following semester. Religion grades are included in the grade point average.
A student who has not achieved a 2.0 GPA the previous semester may have his or her eligibility reinstated at mid-semester if the student has attained at least a 2.0 GPA for the most recent grading period.

A student who is not present in school on the day of an athletic event, or is tardy, cannot participate in that event unless given permission by the administration. It is the responsibility of the student to be aware of special schedules. In addition, students will not be granted early dismissals on the day of an athletic event unless permission is given by the administration.
Detailed interpretation of these and other rules pertaining to athletics are found in the latest Constitution and Rules Handbook of the WVSSAC, of which Madonna is a member.
