Athletics Important Information

Eligibility Tutoring Program (ETP)

To remain academically eligible for sports, athletes must fulfill the requirements of the IHSA of passing 5 classes weekly, and 5 each semester. If they are ineligible (reports pulled on Friday afternoons), they will be required to attend tutoring in the Literacy Center 3 days a  week until they become eligible. Students will get called down by AD on Monday morning to sign the ETP Contract and parents will be notified. Weekly reminder emails will be sent out after the 1st instance. Once an athlete is ineligible for 4 total weeks of a season or has 3 unexcused absences to ETP, they will be removed from their sport for the remainder of their season.

All students participating in athletics @ West are subject to disciplinary action if he or she violates the extra-curricular activities Code of Conduct. The entire Code Policy can be found in the student handbook.
