Athletic Eligibility Rules
Ashley High School strictly adheres to North Carolina High School Athletic Association (NCHSAA) eligibility rules and regulations. To be eligible to participate in athletics, students must meet certain requirements. There are so many eligibility rules, it is impossible to list them all here. Some of the most important ones are--

These forms must be completed (information, initials and signatures) by the parent or legal custodian and student-athlete prior to particpation in any activities (workouts, practices and/or contests).
You must pass at least three out of four subjects or the equivalent of 3 blocks EACH SEMESTER in order to play a sport the next semester. Refer to the NHC Eligibility grid for more information.
