  • All North Ridge Athletes must pass all classes each six weeks in order to maintain eligibility. This is a University Interscholastic League rule.
  • If an athlete fails one or more classes during a six week grading period, he/she is ineligible to play for 3 weeks.
  • If the athlete is passing all classes at the 3 week progress reporting time of the next six weeks, he/she will regain eligibility.
  • Although an ineligible athlete is not permitted to play in games during the ineligibility period, the athlete is still required to participate in all practices.

  • Order form is available on the North Ridge website.
