Sports and Co-Curricular Activities Guidelines:
To be eligible for athletic competition/co-curricular activities during the first semester (September 1 – January 31) a pupil must have passed 30 credits during the immediately preceding academic year. All freshmen are eligible for all sports and activities during the first semester.
To be eligible for athletic/co-curricular activities during the second semester (February 1 – June 30) a pupil must have passed the equivalent of 15 credits at the close of the preceding semester (January 31).
Physicals are required for each student athlete before they can participate in a team's first official practice. The physical must be completed on the state mandated form which may be downloaded from the school's athletic website, here on FamilyID or picked up in the Jr./Sr. High School office. Please schedule your appointment for the physical as soon as possible as it may take a few weeks before your physician can schedule an appointment. Physicals for fall sports must be turned in by August 1st for high school sports and August 27th for Jr. High sports to guarantee participation on the first day of practice. Physical exams MUST be reviewed and approved by the Haddon Heights School District physician prior to an athlete being medically cleared for participation. This process could take up to 3-5 days. You may turn in physicals after the dates above; however, that will not guarantee you participation on the first day of practice.
Students in the Jr./Sr. High School who wish to participate in a school sponsored athletic are required to pay a yearly activity fee to help offset the costs associated with those programs. Students eligible for free or reduced lunch may be granted a waiver after verification by the High School Athletic Department. If you wish to have your child(ren) participate in athletics please complete and return the activity fee form with the appropriate payment to the Athletic Department at the Jr./Sr. High School on or before the payment deadlines. Check or money order should be made payable to the Haddon Heights Board of Education. Please do not send cash. You can also submit activity fee payments on-line through the "School Payments" option in the PowerSchool Parent Portal. Once you log into PowerSchool, there is a link on the left-hand side called "School Payments". Once in the payment interface you can click on "Items/Fees" at the top to take you to thew Activity Fee payment screen.
