Participating in co/extra-curricular activities within the district requires that the student maintain successful performance in academics and citizenship and that the student remains in good standing as defined within the school district co/extra-curricular activity code. As a Lakes Magnet wrestler, you are held to higher expectations than the regular student body. It is a PRIVELEGE, not a right to be able to participate in extracurricular activities. Lakes Wrestling does not condone substance abuse (drinking alcoholic beverages, smoking, or taking illegal drugs). If you are caught, you will be punished. This could result in termination from the team.
Requirements to Participate:
Same for all sports. See 'Requirements/Forms' in Athletics section of this website.
