The New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association Rules and Regulations regarding eligibility are mandatory. In addition, the WHRHS District Board of Education has adopted the following guidelines for students participating in high school athletics.
1. To be eligible for athletic competition during the first semester (September 1 to January 31) of the 10th grade or higher, or the second year of attendance in the secondary school or beyond, a pupil must have passed 25% of the credits (27.5) [30 beginning with the Class of 2014] required by the State of New Jersey for graduation (110) [120 beginning with the Class of 2014], during the immediately preceding academic year.
2. To be eligible for athletic competition during the second semester (Feb. 1 to June 30) of the 9th grade or higher, a pupil must have passed the equivalent of 12 1/2% of the credits (13.75) [15 beginning with the Class of 2014] required by New Jersey for graduation (110) [120 beginning with the Class of 2014] at the close of the preceding semester (Jan. 31). Full-year courses shall be equated as one-half of the total credits to be gained for the full year to determine credits passed during the immediately preceding semester.
These academic requirements apply to all cheerleaders, student managers, student trainers and athletes. Additional information regarding eligibility may be obtained upon request from the Athletic Director or Principal.
Students who have sustained an injury/illness must be medically cleared by the treating physician before returning to sports. A written note is required.
Injuries must be reported immediately to the coach, trainer, and Health Office so that accident reports may be completed. The timing of this is crucial so that an evaluation may be performed and appropriate medical referrals may be be arranged. Delays in reporting an injury or illness may jeopardize insurance coverage.
School Insurance Coverage
Injuries are a part of athletics that at times are unavoidable. If your child sustains an injury during any part of the season, you can expect to be informed by one of the Athletic Trainers and/or the school nurse regarding the injury and the course of treatment. When your son/daughter sustains an injury during a school sponsored sport event the following steps must be taken for other coverage:
Submit your Insurance Plan to the physician's office for initial coverage.
Upon receipt of your EOB (Explanation of Benefits), notify the Health Office at WHRHS at 908-647-4800 Ext. 4877 or 4878.
You will receive a copy of the Accident/Incident report filed at the time of injury, school insurance forms and a cover letter with instructions. Please complete all forms and submit as directed.
If your son/daughter is seen by a physician for an injury or illness sustained at a school sponsored athletic event, whether or not he/she has been evaluated by the athletic training staff, he/she must submit a letter to the athletic trainer from the treating physician stating the diagnosis, treatment, restrictions and estimated time out of athletics before he/she is allowed to return to athletic participation.
WHRHS is very concerned that some of our student athletes may be tempted to use over the counter supplements including, but not limited to creatine and androstenedione. Use of these supplements is strongly discouraged. WHRHS does not endorse the use of any supplements and has adopted the stance of the NJSIAA, National Federation of High School Association, NCAA, Association of Professional Team Physicians and many other professional organizations regarding their use. School personnel should not dispense, endorse or recommend any drug, medication or food supplement to athletes. WHRHS recommends a well rounded diet, including all the food groups in recommended daily allowance amounts, combined with an appropriate training program.
