Antilles HS: School Activities

At Antilles High School, we have created a co-curricular program that is student-centered and consequently one that students want to be a part of.  Activities and Athletics are driven by student interest and may change yearly.  To identify varying interests, we are constantly soliciting recommendations from students.  Participation rates are extremely high and hopefully there is an activity to suit each student.  By keeping students involved after school, we are choosing to lead our school toward a happier and healthier learning environment.  See Student and Parent Handbook for more information.


Eligibility and Participation

**Download Health Physical Assessment Form . It is required for participation in sports at AHS.

 

Antilles High School is a member of the Puerto Rico High School Athletic Alliance (PRHSAA) . PRHSAA rules of eligibility apply to all sports at Antilles High School without exception.

If a student-athlete should choose to quit his/her participation on an athletic team or be removed from an athletic team by a parent/guardian, coach, assistant principal, or principal for ANY reason after the final selection of the team is determined, the Athletic Director may require the student and parent to appear before the Athletic Review Committee before he/she may participate on any future athletic team or participate in any future athletic competition.

The Athletic Review Committee will determine the appropriate administrative action depending on the individual case (i.e. probation, ineligibility from athletic competition for a specific time or season, reinstatement immediately, etc.).

Appeal of the Athletic Review Committee's action may be made to the Principal.

PRHSAA Guideline for Contracts and Compensation

"An individual shall be ineligible for participation in any and all PRHSAA athletic competition if he or she has entered into any kind of agreement to compete in professional athletics, either orally or in writing, regardless of the legal enforceability of that agreement."

An individual who signs a contract or commitment that does not become binding until the professional organization's representative or agent also signs the document is ineligible, even if the contract remains unsigned by the other parties until after the student athlete's eligibility is exhausted.

Academic Eligibility

Student athletes must have a cumulative 2.0 grade average and must have no more than one "F" during a nine week quarter marking period. Grades used to determine eligibility will be recorded on report cards. Grades used to determine ineligibility will be the nine-week quarter grades only. Eligibility/ineligibility for fall extracurricular activities is determined by the fourth quarter grades only from the previous year. Students who are ineligible at the end of the fourth quarter, either because they have more than one failure for the quarter or they have below a 2.0 cumulative average may become eligible for the first quarter of the upcoming school year if they take at least one course in summer school that raises their cumulative GPA above a 2.0 once summer school work is computed.

Attendance Eligibility

  • Students are required to be in school the full day on the day of a weekday game. The only exception is for an appointment approved by the school administration in advance.
  • A student cannot be absent from school and attend practice or participate in athletic game or program except for an excused absence approved by the administration in advance.
  • A student who has "2 or more unexcused tardies" on the day of a scheduled athletic game or program is ineligible for participation in that event.
  • A student suspended from school is not eligible, at the minimum, for the next scheduled competition.
  • A student who has 7 unexcused absences in a semester is subject to be removed from the team
