BEING ACADEMICALLY ELIGIBILITY: The VHSL requires that in order for an athlete to be academically eligible to participate on a VHSL team, they MUST HAVE PASSED 5 CLASSES FOR CREDIT in the previous semester. For FALL & WINTER SPORTS - this would be 2nd Semester of the previous year + Summer school credits; for Spring sports, this would be 1ST SEMESTER! INCOMPLETES DO NOT COUNT AS CREDIT! Therefore, ANY MISSED WORK must be completed with a grade and in the computer at the time grades are checked for eligibility. KNOW THE RULES - DO NOT PROCRASTINATE – ACADEMICS FIRST!
WHAT IS OUT OF SEASON PRACTICE (OSP) ? In compliance with ACPS, Albemarle teams follow the 15-15-10 RULE . This rule allows each team to conduct optional sport specific out of season training for 2 active windows during the school year (15 days each) and one 10 day active window during the summer (exception: VHSL Dead Period and Sundays). Teams may offer unlimited opportunities for conditioning - weight, strength and cardio training. Participation in ANY of these opportunities are NOT required and have no influence on a student's status on the team. This is simply an OPTION for those interested to get in shape and improve their skills. NOTE: ANYONE participating or wishing to try out for a sport's team must have a current VHSL physical on file dated since May 1, 2018. CONTACT the coach of your sport for info on OSP opportunities.
