Requirements for Participation in Athletics

 APS Athletic Department middle school programs are voluntary, after-school programs. Students are required to meet the following requirements in order to participate in accordance with established APS and New Mexico Activities Association requirements:

  1. Students must have a 2.0-grade point average with no more than one failing grade from the previous grading period in order to be allowed to participate (APS, NMAA, and State Law). The cumulative GPA option does not apply to middle schools.
  2. Schools must determine academic eligibility and ineligibility at 8:00 am on the seventh school day from the last day of the grading period.
  3. Students and parents must complete ALL pages of the APS Physical Form and turn it in prior to practice and/or tryouts.
  4. Students must have proof of medical insurance (school insurance, HMO, Medicaid) completed on the APS Physical Form in order to participate (APS and NMAA rule).
  5. A medical doctor or nurse practitioner must examine the student prior to practice and competition to verify the student is cleared to physically participate (APS, NMAA, and State Law).
  6. Parents and students must accept the "risk of injury" that is inherent with sports participation by signing the appropriate space on the student physical form.
  7. Included in the APS Physical Form is the NMAA Concussion in Sports: A Fact Sheet for Athletes and Parents handout. The parent and student are required to sign the acknowledgment form (included in the APS Physical Form) to verify documentation has been received and reviewed by both the parent and the student.

Physical Form

Coaches are not permitted to allow a student to practice, play, or otherwise participate in the sport or activity until a completed APS Physical Form clearing a student to participate has been submitted to the coach and approved by the school athletic director.

Note: Non-APS Physical Forms will no longer be accepted.
