Summit Preparatory Charter High School Athletic Program
Summit Prep is an active participant of the Private School Athletic League (PSAL) consisting of 14 area schools located on the Peninsula and South Bay.

Students are required to have a Summit Prep Medical Forms to participate in the Sports Program. Make an appointment with your doctor after June 1 to cover the entire school year for all sports. Physicals are good for one year. Example; A June 2, 2018 covers the school year 2018 to 2019. A hard copy of the physical must be turned into school prior to tryouts.
Grade Eligibility Requirements
In order to be eligible to participate in Summit Athletics, a Student Athlete needs to maintain a 2.0 GPA and cannot have an “incomplete”, “N/A” or failing in any one class. Summit maintains these CCS-CIF standards (CIF Article 20, Section 205) and uses unweighted grades to calculate GPA. The registration due date is the first grade check date to qualify to participate in any one sport except for Fall sports. Fall Sports will rely on the final grade for the previous year to determine grade eligibility. All student-athletes are required to maintain this minimum standard throughout the season of play. Grade checks are done monthly and posted by the Administration.
Most sports require an athlete to practice and or games 3 to 5 times per week. No practice is longer than 2.5 hours. Students are required to work 2 Stanford concession events for each sport played anywhere from 4 to 8 hours.
Stanford Concessions allows Summit Athletics to raise funds each year to support up to 50% of the annual budget. Events include all Stanford home football games and continues with multiple sporting events throughout the year. Each student-athlete is asked to work 2 events per sport of participation. If a student is running Cross Country and plays Soccer they would be asked to work 4 events. When a parent works an event along with the student-athlete it counts towards the students obligation. Sign up early to get your preferred event. Adult volunteers are needed at every event to work and supervise. Summit parents are asked to be leads at these events and we are always looking for new managers.
Donations are gladly accepted at any time. You may choose to donate at the time of online registration. The recommended donation is $250.00 per sport. You may also mail or drop off donations at school made out to “Summit Prep Athletics”.
Students who participate in a varsity sport are prohibited from playing the same sport during the same season for another organization. In other words, if a student plays varsity girls volleyball at Summit Prep, that student is prohibited from participating on a club team volleyball team during the fall season. (California Interscholastic Federation-Central Coast Section “CIF-CCS” Regulation)
