Eligibility Requirements

The Enfield Public Schools are a member school of the Connecticut Association of Secondary Schools.  As a member school, we are governed by the uniform eligibility requirements of the CIAC. All CIAC rules and regulations, including the Handbook can be found by clicking HERE.

Eligibility for extracurricular activities shall be based on the date that the REPORT CARDS ARE ISSUED. It is expected that report cards will be issued to students at a date not later than ten (10) school days following the close of the marking period.

To participate in extracurricular activities, a student must satisfy all of the following requirements:

1) At the end of marking periods 1, 2, and 3

Maintain a minimum average of 1.7 (C-) for that marking period.
Earn not more than 1 failing grade (F).
The student must be a good school citizen and a worthy representative of Enfield Secondary Schools. Accumulated school discipline, poor attendance, or other evidence of poor citizenship will, as determined by the building principal, render a student ineligible.

2) At the end of the school year (Fall Eligibility)

Maintain a minimum average of 1.7 (C-) in all final grades (including Semester 1 courses, Semester 2 courses, and full year courses).
  Earn a minimum of 4.5 credits in the previous school year.
The student must be a good school citizen and a worthy representative of Enfield Secondary Schools. Accumulated school discipline, poor attendance, or other evidence of poor citizenship will, as determined by the building principal, render a student ineligible.

3) Successfully pass at least four courses at the end of each marking period used to determine eligibility for an activity.

4) All incoming 9th grade students are academically eligible for fall sports regardless of 8th grade final grades.

5) Students may participate, that is, practice with their team or club at the close of the making period, but will not be declared eligible to compete/perform until report cards are issued.

6) The school administration may declare a student ineligible, when academically eligible, if it is felt that the student athlete is not taking care of his/her responsibilities both as a student and citizen of Enfield High School, JFK Middle School and the Enfield community.
