All competition conducted between schools must only be between or among member schools. No student is eligible to enter such competition without representing a school. Only two avenues of action are open to schools wishing to provide opportunity for a single student; they are 1) establish their own program, or 2) seek to form a single team with another school district.
1) Schools can establish their own program (team), with participating students representing the school that they attend. As long as the rules of that specific sport are followed, programs (teams) can comprise of a single student or multiple students. The coach must be approved by the school’s Board of Education. Schools can share coaches, but may not share student athletes (ex. Swimming or running relay teams).
2) Schools can choose to combine or merge a team with another district, to form a single team. One school will serve as the host school, and is responsible for all eligibility and qualifying requirements. Approval must be received from the league and section.
