     The middle school track team is a combined team featuring players from all of the Watauga County K-8 schools.

    Only students in grades 6th-8th grade may compete in middle school track.  In order to qualify for public school participation, a student must meet the following requirements:

    Academics

    In grades sixth, seven and eight, the student must pass at least one less course than the number of required core courses each semester and meet promotion standards established by the LEA. If an athlete is "academically eligible” or "academically ineligible” at the beginning of any semester, that status is retained throughout the full semester. It is the responsibility of the school principal to check the academic status of each student/athlete enrolled in school at the beginning and close of a semester. Academic eligibility is based off the previous semesters grades including previous school year. *Note:6th graders have a clean slate starting in the fall of their 6th grade year.* Students with more than one failing course are considered ineligible to participate, however grades should be a top priority of a student-athlete. If there is a concern for a grade, the coach will meet with student/parent about academics.

    Age

    The principal must have evidence of the legal birth date of the student. A student shall not
    participate on a middle school team if the student becomes 15 years of age on or before August 31 of that school year.

    Attendance

    A player must have attended school at least 85% of the previous semester. A student must, at anytime of any game in which he or she participates, be a regularly enrolled member of the school’s student body, according to local policy. If there is no local policy, “regularly enrolled” is defined as enrolled for at least one-half of the “minimum load.” It is recommended the student be in school the day of the contest.

    Sports Pre-participation and Medical Examination Form

    In order to be eligible for practice or participation in interscholastic athletic contests, the student
    must receive a medical examination once every 395 days by a duly licensed physician, nurse
    practitioner, or physician assistant, subject to the provisions of G.S.90-9, 90-18.1, and 90-18.2.
