Kid sits for five weeks until next grade check to confirm passing grades to be eligible.


While I never was in a position of grade issues myself, years ago it seemed like if a kid was out because of grades, there were checks every week and as soon as grades were brought up, he was eligible. I do remember a player on my daughter's HS softball team last spring who was supposedly out for grades (at least that was what we heard) and she was back the next week.

The SPS five week acadmic eligibility is from the last quarter. It follows you to the next sports season. So spring grades will affect your status for next fall. Unless remedied in summer school. You start your time on the first day of school. Not when you start fall turnout. So a kid who is ineligible must sit out 6 games. If one game starts before school like it did this year. Sit out the next weeks game, because according to WIAA rules they have to make sure they are conditioned properly. (Remember they have been practicing since August). Dumb rule. Then be eligible for week 8. Guess how many games there are. Yep 9. So are they really worth it? They can get a 10th with a crossover or if their team is in a playoff game.

Thanks for the information. I could have been misinformed?

Bottom line is coach Joey is not of to a good start with his 20 plus transfers.

Rainier Beach playing well with the transfers from
FSP.

Agreed. Sad that Franklin can't field a team. But sandwiched between GHS and RB. What's left???

This is what happens when Metro Athletic Director
McCurdy turns a blind eye to Garfield and Beach.
It could be McCurdy goal to only play football at two
Seattle public schools.

The majority of the football talent in Renton attends
Rainier Beach. Lots of cooked addresses.

Not sure about Seattle's rule but the WIAA says a student-athlete in a fall sport must have passed 5 of 6 classes in the Spring semester +Summer school. If not he/she must sit out until after the last Saturday in September. He/she can still practice (just not participate in games) so on the Monday after the last Saturday in September they are eligible for competition if they are passing 5 classes at that point.

SPS has different standards then the rest of the state. Which is frustrating when kids who are marginalized don't have the access to resources and lower grades due to many reasons.
