East Bay Youth Football & Cheer - Scholar Athlete Requirements 2015
Any player, Spiritleader, or Junior Coach (this does not include mascots and scouts) who maintains a grade point average of 3.50, out of a possible 4.00, and receives no citizenship marks below satisfactory, during the quarter he/she is participating in youth football/spiritleading, is eligible to apply for the East Bay Youth Football & Cheer Scholar Athlete Award.
At 3.50 G.P.A. is the equivalent to at least half of all grades being A's while no more than half of all grades are B's ( No C's, D's or F's).
Where marks like outstanding, satisfactory, or check marks are used, instead of letter grades, a letter must be submitted on school letterhead from the principal explaining the letter grade equivalent.
Consideration is given to candidates who attend schools where grades are computed on a norm higher than average schools. A letter from the principal is also needed with their package explaining the grading criteria.
