Georgia sports eligibility
Students may participate in a sport or activity if they are enrolled full-time in grades 9-12. They must have passing grades — 70 percent or higher — in most classes. They must not have turned 19 years old before May 1 in the year prior to their sports participation.
The Georgia High School Association requires schools to submit eligibility forms that include students’ addresses, and the schools must tell GHSA how they verified the addresses, said Ralph Swearngin, executive director for GHSA.
