Conduct

Members of athletic teams are representatives of their institutions and the Wisconsin Competitive Sports League and must govern their conduct and actions to be a credit to their institutions and conference.

Eligibility Rules

  1. A player must be a student at the institution that he/she represents.
  2. A player must be enrolled in courses that total at least 6 credits per semester from an accredited institution of which 3 of those credits must come from the campus they are competing for. Any player dropping below 6 credits during the semester is immediately ineligible.
  3. A player must have a minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 after two semesters of attendance to be eligible for competition. Thereafter, a player must maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 2.00. Any student dropping below the required GPA will become ineligible one week prior to the first day of class the following semester.
    • Please note ALL classes – including non-degree credit courses – are counted when calculating GPA for athletic eligibility. The Athletic Board strong encourages you to make education your highest priority throughout your academic career at UW-Green Bay, Marinette Campus.
    • You are, of course, expected to regularly participate in competitions and practices, but you are neither expected nor encouraged to sacrifice your school work in order to do so. Please consult with your coach if you experience serious conflicts between your academic and athletic demands.
    • Remember that to succeed, college students can expect to study two hours a week for every credit they are taking; thus a student taking 12 credits can expect 24 hours of homework a week.
    • Please note that a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better is required to avoid academic probation.
