XC PE Credit and Letter Requirements

Issaquah Cross Country 2018

PE CREDIT

• ELIGIBILITY:  Any athlete that earns a Varsity or JV Letter as outlined below will be eligible for PE credit.

• ATTENDANCE:  Attend and participate in practices in their entirety.  No more than 8 absences of ANY KIND whether

excused or unexcused.  Missing part of a practice or non-relay or invitational meet both count as absences.  VERY

IMPORTANT:  ABSENCES FOR PE CREDIT PURPOSES BEGIN COUNTING ON THE FIRST DAY OF THE SEASON (Monday,

August 20) REGARDLESS OF WHEN AN ATHLETE BEGINS PARTICIPATING. (I.E. – If you do not turnout for practice until the

second week, you have already tallied 5 absences.)

• COMPLETE THE SEASON:  Attend and compete in all non-relay or invitational meets through the latest meet on our

schedule that you are eligible for.  (For most of the team, that meet will be KingCo on October 18 or Sub-Varsity Kingco Invitational on October 20.)
