A player on an interscholastic athletic team shall participate in only one strenuous high school sport at a time during the regular high school sports season. A player may drop one high school sport to participate in another, but he/she may not return to a sport from which he/she withdrew. The strenuous sports are: Baseball, Basketball, Cross-Country, Diving, Fencing, Field Hockey, Football, Gymnastics, Ice Hockey, Lacrosse, Skiing, Soccer, Softball, Swimming, Tennis, Spring Track, Winter Track, Volleyball, and Wrestling.
- CL 1 Bowling and Golf are not considered strenuous sports.
- CL 2 Rule 2, Section 2, Strenuous Sports, will mean a student concluding a season in one sport will not be able to participate in another sport regardless of the fact that the athlete would be able to meet the six (6) day practice rule.
No, most teams do not make cuts from the program as a whole. Teams will be decided and players will be placed on either Varsity, JV or Freshmen based on ability. In some cases teams may need to make cuts from the program if there are an abundance of athletes trying out for one sport, but that is usually rare. However, it can happen from time to time and from team to team.
