Minimum academic average on those courses used to determine your post-secondary admission.
All athletes must be demonstrating progress towards furthering their education and maintaining academic success.
Only Association representatives (team and individual) may enter into competition with one another in CCAA Championships.
Athletes are eligible according to acceptable course load standards as established by the CCAA.
CCAA reserves the right to interpret and apply the Eligibility Rules and to impose penalties on athletes and members for breaches of the Eligibility Rules.
These rules shall apply to all athletes participating in CCAA competition, inclusive of Conference,and non‐Conference competition in any sport in which the CCAA recognizes, conducts and awards a national championship.
Upon entering Post-Secondary:
The student athlete must take a full time course load. The CCAA defines “full‐time status” as being registered in and attending a minimum nine (9) credits (or equivalent as determined by the institution’s Registrar), in each semester in which they participate in CCAA competition.
Participation in CCAA competition is limited to those “full‐time” student‐athletes who are registered students at the institution they represent during the entire duration of the CCAA event.
The Athletic Director is also responsible for measuring the student athlete's eligibility against any new eligibility rules that are effective for the upcoming year.
