Athletics » Eligibility


At Back of the Yards College Preparatory High School, our athletes are also scholars. Students must be eligible to participate in all BOYCP sports. Please read the CPS Eligibility requirements carefully:
For Second Semester Freshmen and all other classes:
Past Semester standing – Grades from the previous semester
Students must have passed 2.5 credit hours (which many times translates into 5 classes) in the previous semester and maintain a cumulative 2.0 Grade Point Average. Credits earned during summer school can be combined with the spring semester grades.
Present Semester record – Weekly grade checks
Whereas most CPS students are enrolled in 6 or 7 classes, students must be enrolled in at least 2.5 credit hours (5 classes) and must have a passing grade in each of the classes to which they are enrolled.
A student is generally eligible for interscholastic sports when:
The Player Record Packet (including the current medical permission and concussion acknowledgement) of the student is on file at the school and the student has been recorded in the sports module in IMPACT by the school athletic director.
The student meets scholastic eligibility requirements. However there are other factors that impact student eligibility.
Please contact our Athletic Director, Mr. Ryan Blumberg [email protected] if you have any questions.
