No Pass No Play Policy
"F" is considered a no passing grade by the District. Each school may choose to make a more stringent policy.
The NO PASS NO PLAY policy will be clearly stated by all coaches to their athletes at the first practice of each Festival sport. This will allow the athlete four weeks to improve and/or maintain their grades. Please contact your coach with any questions about the policy for your sport at Desert Shadows.
Desert Shadows All-Star Team Participation
By the completion of the third week of practice (prior to cuts) any Festival participant interested in pursuing the All Star team must be given a grade sheet to be signed by all teachers. This grade sheet must be turned into the coaches before the Festival.
If a participant has a failing grade, they cannot be chosen for the All-Star team.
If an All-Star player receives a failing grade during the All Star season, they will be suspended from play until the grade is deemed passing (“D” or better).
Desert Shadows Wrestling and Track Policy
Athletes must be passing prior to the first match/meet to travel and compete.
