Athletic Placement Process

The Board of Education has approved the resolution to include the Athletic Placement Process (APP) in our current eligibility standards for 8th grade student athletes. Students are eligible for senior high athletic competition in a sport during each of four consecutive seasons beginning with entry into the ninth grade. However, by satisfying the requirements of APP, a student may receive extended eligibility that permits:

Participation during five consecutive seasons in the approved sport, after the entry into the eighth grade;
Eligible to participate at the JUNIOR VARSITY(JV) LEVEL ONLY in the following sports: Baseball, Basketball, Field Hockey, Football, Ice Hockey, Lacrosse, Soccer, Softball, and Volleyball;
Eligible to participate at the JUNIOR VARSITY (JV) or VARSITY level in the following sports: Bowling, Cross Country, Golf, Ski, Swim, Tennis, Track & Field, Wrestling

Katonah Lewisboro School District understands that students do not mature at the same rate, and there can be tremendous developmental differences between students of the same age. The APP is not to be used to fill positions on teams, instead, it is aimed at the few, select students who can benefit so that a student may be placed at a level of competition that should result in increased opportunity, a fairer competitive environment, minimized risk, and greater personal satisfaction.
