RIO LINDA PREPARATORY ACADEMY ATHLETICS
Rio Linda Preparatory Academy is proud to have a number of different athletic activities offered to our students year round. Students have various opportunities to work with another on sport specific teams building stamina, endurance, collaboration, and work ethic. We hope to have our students reach their highest goals not only academically, but also physically through our rigorous sports programs.
Our League believes that athletic participation is an integral part to the common mission of our schools and is viewed as an extension of our overall school programs. We hold the philosophy that participation in interscholastic athletics should be enjoyable with the purpose of benefiting students. Our league sports are developmental and competitive with goals of fostering the value of participation without overemphasizing winning. Additional goals of the league are to develop skills and an understanding of the chosen sport, develop an appreciation and respect for TEAM as well as school, opponents, and officials.
To encourage and support academic excellence, RLPA requires students to earn a minimum 2.0, or “C” grade point average, and no more than one F on progress, quarter or semester grades in order to tryout in co-curricular activities.
Student athletes should be leaders on campus. Therefore, they will be held to a higher standard of citizenship. If students receive any of the below infractions, the consequences are as follows:
- Suspension from School- Dismissal from the team.
- Fight in a game- Dismissal from the Team.
- Poor behavior on their weekly progress check- Student will not be able to participate in the following week’s games until their behavior is improved.
The administration has the right to make exceptions on a case by case situation.
