Student-athletes must meet academic, behavioral and attendance standards in order to participate in after-school sports. Our student-athletes focus on the things that make a difference in their education and their team membership.
All students in middle school can participate in sports through the district’s no-cut policy.
Students may participate in one sport/activity per season.
Students cannot practice or participate in competitions until all required forms have been completed and submitted through FamilyID. Students also must have a valid physical to start practice. Families who do not have health insurance may wish to contact the Free Clinic of Southwest Washington.
Students who are absent more than three periods in a day may not participate in any after-school sports or activities on that day.
Athletes must meet behavior and academic guidelines to participate.
Students with any failing grades will be on probation, and students with more than two failing grades will not be eligible to play in games. Athletes will also not be eligible during the three weeks in a season following a trimester where two or more F grades were received.
All athletic fees and fines must be paid in order to compete. Financial assistance is available.
Each sport requires a valid ASB card ($10 each calendar year) and sport-specific fee of $20. These funds are used to help defray the cost of equipment, cleaning/repair/replacement of uniforms, transportation, officials and other expenses.
At Thomas Jefferson, we value standards of kindness and respect. We invite students and their families to come to the games and support our student-athletes. Students must leave campus after school and return at 4:30 p.m. to watch the games. Positive cheering and good sportsmanship are part of showing positive school spirit at Jefferson athletic contests! Students are to stay seated in the gym while the event is going on. Students may get drinks and use the restroom only at halftime or between matches. All other areas of campus are off-limits.
