PLEASE NOTE: Student Athletes become ineligible to participate in SFA sports if the family's account balance falls more than 60 days behind its FACTS payment plan.   Participation in practice and competition is NOT allowed during this time.  Students will not be eligible to register for a fall sport if the family's account balance is not paid in full at the time of sport registration.

Guidelines (as stated in the SFA Parent/Student Handbook):  Athletic Probation (5th -8thGrades) - SFA requires students participating in athletics must maintain a minimum of 2.0 GPA on each report card and earn no more than 1 failing grade. Failure to do so may result in the student being ineligible from both practice and games until the next progress report is issued.  Students can regain eligibility at mid-quarter progress report if their grades have improved to the above standard.  If a student finishes the school year with less than a 2.0 GPA,  he/she will not be eligible to participate in a fall sport at the beginning of the next school year.

A student must attend five sequential class periods on the day of a scheduled or make-up athletic event.  Any student who is absent from school on the day of such event or who checked out of school is not eligible to participate in an athletic contest or other extracurricular activities later that same day.  Students serving an OSS (Out of School Suspension) or ISS (In School Suspension) are not eligible to participate in a practice or a game the day of the suspension.

All student athletes represent St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School.  As such, only exemplary conduct, both on and off the field, is acceptable.  Appropriate dress/uniform during practices and games is required.
