Each student shall meet all requirements in Bylaw 4, Student Eligibility, to be eligible to participate in interscholastic athletic competition at an OHSAA member school. The nine resource centers devoted to assisting school administrators in determining a student's eligibility in each respective category are located at the links to the left.
Note to Parents: Please direct all questions regarding eligibility and OHSAA regulations to a school administrator, who will then contact the OHSAA office for clarification, if needed. The OHSAA’s priority is to respond to the hundreds of calls and emails that come in each week from member schools.
On occasion, school administrators, parents and/or students form the opinion that the decision of the Commissioner's Office was in error and as a result a desire to appeal that decision arises. Click here to visit the Appeals Panel Resource Center.
