“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” – 2 Timothy 4:7

Our Lady of Consolation School has an organized sports program through GRACEAC (Grand Rapids Area Catholic Elementary Council) league for students in grades 5, 6, 7 & 8. In 4th grade, basketball is offered (not
though GRACEAC) with several games scheduled. A student participating in athletic activities sponsored by and representing Our Lady of Consolation School, should behave properly and observe all rules regarding
eligibility, training, dress code, good citizenship, and good sportsmanship. Student athletes are expected to follow these rules:
A) Respect and obey coaches.
B) Maintain a “C” average in core academic classes.
C) Maintain at least a “2” in Effort-Study Habits and Conduct. (See explanation below.)

Explanation of Effort-Study Habit Code

  • Very Good: Completes assignments consistently; studies independently, shows participation during classes.
  • Satisfactory: Continuous effort to complete assignments; meet requirements of classes. Explanation of Conduct Code
  • Very Good 2. Satisfactory
  • Academic Eligibility Rule: Academic eligibility will be determined by the student maintaining a “C” average in each subject.

Participation in sports is open to all students; no one is excluded, as long as the student follows the discipline of the school. If, at any time, a student becomes ineligible, the ineligibility will apply to the following week.

If a student is absent from school because of illness, he/she may not attend practice or games. If the reason for absence is a doctor’s appointment, funeral, etc., the student may attend practice. Absences must be notified through written notes. Students who find it necessary to miss a practice must request permission from the coach; they should not send a message through another player. It is understood that students who freely choose to participate agree to abide by the rules when they join the team.

Sports physicals are required for all students and must be on file before the first practice. Our Lady of Consolation provides sports physicals in late spring for all students in grades 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7.

A “Concussion Awareness Educational Material Acknowledgement” Form must be completed for all athletes. This form must be kept on file for the duration of enrollment/participation and until age 25
