Athletic Eligibility

Students must have and maintain a 2.0 GPA (C average) or above, to be eligible to participate in athletic programs. In order for athletes to participate in daily practices and/or games, they must be present for at least four consecutive periods that day. Students must also complete a satisfactory medical examination during each academic school year in which they plan to participate.

All Athletic programs will stress academic success, physical fitness, character development, discipline, and good sportsmanship. Our athletes represent our school and community and are expected to be student leaders with positive behavior. Students who use alcohol, tobacco or other drugs, have behavior or attendance problems, or violate other training rules as set by their coach, may lose their opportunity to participate.

For more information about any of our Athletic Programs at DMS, please email our athletic director [email protected].
