Marina Village Middle School offers a full range of athletic opportunities after school. Students of all grade levels are eligible to participate in cross-country, volleyball, basketball, track and wrestling. Students are not required to tryout for cross-country, track or wrestling. Teams participate against other middle schools from within the Foothill Athletic League.
In order to be eligible to participate in the sports program, a student must have:
A minimum grade point average of 2.0 (C) without any F during the current and preceding trimester
No history of suspension
80 merits for the trimester
Current physical exam record on file
No outstanding financial obligations (e.g. No library fines)
Members of sports teams at school are expected to act as exemplary citizens of the school and community. They are ambassadors of the school as they go out to compete at other schools and are expected to act as such. They are also to be exemplary in their efforts in PE class by demonstrating good sportsmanship, a cooperative attitude with teachers, and always giving 100% effort in class activities.
The following are basic guidelines for our students:
Students must have a sports permission packet signed by a parent/guardian to try out or participate.
Students must maintain a 2.0 GPA during the sports season.
Coaches will require athletes to circulate grade checks and submit them directly to the athletic director. If at any time during the playing season a student's grades drop below the 2.0 GPA or a student has as grade of F, he/she will be put on probation for two weeks to fulfill this academic requirement. During the two-week probation period, the coach has the discretion to either let the student play in the games or have him/her sit on the bench. If the student's grades do not meet the 2.0 GPA without any F by the end of the two-week probation period he/she will be removed from the team.
Students must attend school for at least four periods or 4 hours on a game day or on Friday preceding a Saturday tournament.
