The objectives of athletics are:
- To provide a school program in which all students may participate.
- To create a sincere school spirit shared by the student body
- To give an opportunity to every student to develop competitive spirit and physical skills.
St. Bonaventure High School is a member of the Southern Section of the California Inter-scholastic Federation (CIF).
- Athletes must observe all regulations that exist in the current
edition of the CIF Blue Book.
***A member of a high school team may not, during his or her season of sport, compete for an outside team in the same sport. A season of sport is defined as that period which begins with a student's first interscholastic competition (non-league, tournament or league game) and ends with that student's last interscholastic contest (non-league, tournament, league or CIF-SS playoff).
- All participants must be examined and pass a physical given
by a doctor.
Certification of this examination must be on file in the Athletic Director's Office. This is done on a yearly basis.
- All football participants must carry insurance,
this must be obtained through the school. No waivers will be accepted.
Certification of insurance coverage must be on file in the Athletic
Director's office. This is done on a yearly basis.
- All athletes must maintain a 2.0 grade point average. A student
who falls below a 2.0 at a quarter grading period will be placed
on probation, but may still participate in sports. If the student
fails to bring up the grade point average to at least a 2.0 by the
semester, he/she is considered ineligible.
- Athletes must exhibit a satisfactory conduct record as determined
by the disciplinary policies of the school. An athlete must maintain
Citizenship Honors, not losing more than 20 points in a quarter.
Losing more than 20 points will mean being suspended from the team
until points are earned back. Being suspended from school may also
result in a mandatory ineligibility period from sports as determined
by the administration.
- Students must be in school for at least three periods in order
to be eligible to play in a game or to practice on that day. Any
student who arrives in school after the first three periods is ineligible
to participate in any after-school activities on that same day.
- Any student who participates in one sport for more than one-half
of the scheduled games and leaves the team for any reason other
than injury is ineligible to participate in the next scheduled sport
until the previous sport season is completed.
- A spot earned on a team for one year is not a guarantee for any following year a student tries out for that sport. Students are encouraged hone skills and to work on conditioning during the off-season within the C.I.F. guidelines.
