Athletics General Information

CIF North Coast Section
The purpose of the Athletic Program at Benicia High School is to promote, direct, and conduct interscholastic athletics in such a  manner as to further the aims of general education, promote friendly relations with other schools, encourage participation by students, and teach good sportsmanship.
“It is the mission of the North Coast Section to provide wholesome, educational athletic activities that foster the ideals of sportsmanship, ethical conduct and fair play. All competition and practices shall be conducted in a safe manner that assures dignity, respect and courtesy for players, coaches, officials and spectators.”
(Board of Managers – April 26, 1996)
CIF and the North Coast Section define sportsmanship as a person who can take a loss or defeat without complaint, or victory without gloating, and who treats his/her opponents with fairness, courtesy, and respect. Sportsmanship is a primary goal of Benicia High School and of the North Coast Section. Good sportsmanship does not happen accidentally. This requires intentional actions, behavior, and communication by coaches, during practices and competitions.
All student athletes must have a current Physical on file in order to participate in any Benicia High School Sport.

Student-Athlete Eligibility

The Benicia High School staff, administration, and the Benicia Unified School District School Board encourages students to participate in extracurricular activities while maintaining good scholastic habits. Extracurricular activities help students learn the values of leadership, sportsmanship, cooperation, teamwork, and thus help them become better citizens. In order to be eligible to participate in extracurricular activities, including athletics, students must maintain good academic standing which is a grade point average of 2.0 or above, passing a minimum of four classes in the grading period.

 
Academic Probation:
Students participating in extracurricular activities must earn a minimum of a 2.0 GPA and cannot fail more than one class during each marking period.  Students who fall below a 2.0 GPA or fail more than one class are placed on probation.  Students on academic probation have one academic quarter to meet the minimum grade point requirement for continual participation in extracurricular activities. Students on probation may still participate in extracurricular activities. 
 
Ineligibility:
If a student has been placed on probation and they again earn below a 2.0 GPA or fail more than one class, they will be placed on the Academic “Ineligible” list.  Students on the “Ineligible” list may not participate in extracurricular activities for the rest of that quarter.  If during the next marking period their GPA goes above a 2.0 and they have not failed more than one class, the student’s eligibility will be re-instated.  If a student does not pass at least 4 classes in a grading period, they automatically become ineligible to participate in extracurricular activities (including students with a reduced school day).
 
Incoming Freshmen & Transfer Student Eligibility:
As of the first day of school, all incoming freshman with a GPA less than 2.0 from their previous school are placed on academic probation for one quarter and will be allowed to participate in extracurricular activities.  The eligibility of any transfer student will be based on his/her most recent grade report. Transferring from one school to another may affect athletic eligibility under Sac-Joaquin, CIF and/or State CIF rules. If you have questions regarding this rule, please contact Athletic Director Craig Holden at 747-8325.
 
The California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) standard for athletic eligibility states that a student must pass 4 classes and maintain a 2.0 grade point average. Therefore, a student who fails three or more classes at the quarter or semester is ineligible to participate and has NO probationary period.
