JJJ-R Selection for Sports Teams
SELECTION FOR SPORTS TEAMS
Normally members of sports and cheerleading squads are sixth, seventh, or eighth graders.
In the event there is an insufficient number of sixth, seventh, and eighth grade participants for a sports team or cheerleading squad, the pool of participants shall be extended to the fifth grade. Sufficient numbers of fifth graders shall be selected to complement the team roster.
Before fifth graders are invited to participate, all sixth, seventh, and eighth graders who participated on the team squad for at least one season shall automatically be a member of the team or squad.
The above does not stipulate nor does it intend to suggest to the coaches the actual participants in games. Its intent is limited to the selection of participants to form a team.
