School personnel supervise athletic events. School rules apply to the athletic events, and students are expected to behave appropriately and obey the supervisors or they will not be allowed to attend after school athletic events.
- In grades 6-8, the student must pass at least one less course than the number of required core courses each semester and meet Chatham County School's promotion standards. Students must pass 3 of 4 academic courses and two of these courses have to be English and Math.
- If an athlete is “academically eligible” at the beginning of any semester, that status is retained throughout the full semester. The school principal will check the academic status of each student/athlete enrolled in school at the beginning and close of a semester.
- NOTE: An athlete becomes eligible or ineligible on the first day of the new semester.
- The principal must have evidence of the legal birth date of the student. A student shall not participate on a seventh or eighth grade team if the student becomes 15 years of age on or before October 16 of that school year.
