1. All incoming 9th graders are automatically academically eligible to try-out for a Fall or Winter sport during their freshman year.
2. For every subsequent semester after the first semester of your freshman year, the student-athlete must have earned 2.5 units (essentially, passed five classes) during the previous semester.
3. In addition to the 2.5 units earned in the previous semester, the following are further requirements for 10th-12th grade student-athletes:
· Entering 10th grade (Fall semester): Student-athlete must have accumulated a minimum of five units during freshman year
· Entering 11th grade (Fall semester): Student-athlete must have accumulated a minimum of eleven units during freshman and sophomore years.
· Entering 12th grade (Fall semester): Student-athlete must have accumulated a minimum of seventeen units during his/her freshman, sophomore, and junior years.
**If you have moved/transferred to HHS any time after beginning your freshman year, then you might be ineligible to participate for one year from the time of your move/transfer. Please see Coach Melton to explain your move/transfer, and he will look into your eligibility further.
