Athletic Eligibility
Students participating in athletic activities at The Dr. G.W. Williams S.S. represent the school and as such should be our ambassadors.  They should meet academic attendance expectations and present a positive image of our school.
1.        Academic eligibility: Athletes must be passing all of their courses and have good attendance in order to participate in athletics at Williams. Eligibility will be based on marks in current courses. An Athletic Eligibility Form should be used at the beginning of a semester with mid-semester reports being used to confirm continued eligibility. If a student is failing, and wishes to appeal due to extenuating circumstances, s/he may file an appeal through his/her coach.  This appeal is then heard by the Phys. Ed. Head and a member of the Administration, usually the Principal, with input from the subject teacher.  This group would rule the student eligible with certain conditions applied, or ineligible.
2.        Athletes must be enrolled in at least three courses per semester unless in their final semester.        
3.        Athletes participating in inter-school sports must complete the required documents before being allowed to play.  Documents may include eligibility form, permission forms, insurance forms, travel forms,
payment of fees, etc., as outlined by the teacher supervisor.  Athletes                   who do not complete the documentation will not be permitted to     participate.
4.        Athletes are not permitted to drive to sports events.  Exceptions must be approved by the Principal at least one day in advance.  Athletes who drive without permission will not be allowed to participate.  They will be sent back to school and may face additional consequences.
