Athletic Eligibility

Athletic Eligibility

  • It is the belief of the Medford School District that participation in athletics is a privilege extended to students.  Students involved with athletics are to be responsible representatives of North Medford and their community.  The impression a student leaves on people has a direct effect upon the school, fellow students and the Medford community.
