Calvary Chapel Schools offers a wide variety of interscholastic sports. Sharing the philosophy of Calvary Chapel High School, we believe that through the medium of sports, athletes can learn spiritual, physical, and mental disciplines not easily acquired through other means. CCS, serving as the primary feeder program to the high school, endeavors to develop and cultivate these disciplines in our athletes. In practice this means fielding coaches who are strong in the Christian faith, capable in their field, contagious in their enthusiasm, able to lead, and instruct.
Any student who wishes to participate in CCS athletics must have a GPA of 2.0 or higher. At the conclusion of each grading period, which occurs every six weeks, any student whose GPA is below a 2.0 will be placed on probation for the next six weeks. The student may practice and participate in all team events during this probationary period. If, at the end of the six week probationary period, however, the student has not achieved the appropriate GPA, the student will be declared athletically ineligible. The student will remain athletically ineligible for a minimum of six weeks and until he or she has a GPA of 2.0 or higher.
*NOTE: Students who become athletically ineligible after the final grading period of their seventh-grade year will begin their eighth-grade year unable to participate in any CCS athletics. Likewise, students who become athletically ineligible after the final grading period of their sixth-grade year will begin their seventh-grade year unable to participate in any CCS athletics.
A student’s athletic eligibility may also be suspended for disciplinary reasons. Any student who is suspended from school for disciplinary reasons forfeits the privilege of participating on any CCS athletic team during the duration of his suspension. During the suspension, the suspended student may attend any team event as a spectator, but he may not participate in any practices or games.
Any student required to serve an after-school detention must fulfill that obligation 1) on the designated day, and 2) prior to any involvement in CCS athletics. After the detention has been properly and fully served, the student will be permitted to participate in his team’s practice or game. Violation of this policy will result in suspension from the team’s next athletic contest.
ATHLETIC FEES & SPIRIT PACKS
A $100 fee will be charged to everyone who decides to participate in athletics at Calvary Chapel Schools. These fees will help defray the expenses of protective equipment, officials' fees, tournament entry fees, and items related to running an athletic program. In addition to the athletic fee, most sports require the purchase of a spirit pack, which includes practice t-shirts and other team items. Please see the individual coaches for cost and further information. All sports uniforms need to be returned to the office (washed) after the sport season is over.
In order to participate in the sports programs offered at Calvary Chapel Junior Schools an athletic packet must be completed and submitted to the athletic director. These forms must be completed and turned in prior to the first day of practice:
LEAVING CLASS FOR ATHLETIC EVENTS
When students must leave early from a class for an athletic event, the following policy will be followed:
Students and parents are reminded that we represent the school, and more importantly the Lord, when we are a participant or fan at an athletic event. Thus, we must be mindful of the way we treat the officials, the other team, and the opposing crowd. Appropriate attitudes, actions, and dress are expected at all events. Any fan that speaks, acts, or dresses inappropriately during a CCS athletic event will be asked to leave the event immediately. This request may be made by any member of the CCS administration, the CCS athletic director, a CCS faculty member, or the team’s coach.
