Those participating in any Advanced Fine Arts or other AIA sanctioned activities (Choir, Band, Flags, Dance, Orchestra, Drama, or Academic Decathlon, Mock Trial, SkillsUSA) need only parent permission card, emergency card, and "paid" receipts for participation fees. Participants will need to wait a minimum of 24 hours after returning required paperwork before being placed on the roster. The Athletic Office is open during the summer months thus making it possible to pick up all paperwork ahead of time to avoid any delay in participation. For further information, call Yolanda Riviera at 225-5454.
Sports packets must be turned in to the athletics office a minimum of 24 hours before the first day of practice. The athletics office is located in the finance office. Contact Jerry Gastellum, Athletics Manager, at 225-5555 or Yolanda Riviera, Athletics assistance, at 225-5454 for questions regarding athletics and activities.
In order for a student to be eligible for competition in an AIA sanctioned event, a student must have earned passing grades in all enrolled classes – in other words, no pass, no play. Grades are issued approximately every 4 ½ weeks and eligibility can be gained or lost at these intervals. We encourage all students to attend conference periods and to communicate frequently with their teachers to ensure they are passing their classes. The counseling office has weekly progress reports that students and parents can use to monitor grades. In addition, we urge parents to monitor grades on TUSDStats at https://tusdstats.tusd1.org/.

Co-curricular events are those which are competitive in nature and involve more than one school in which a championship, winner, or rating is determined. Students must meet AIA and academic eligibility requirements to participate in co-curricular events.
Participation fees for no-cut sports (Cross Country, Football, Swimming, Tennis and Track and Field) must be paid in the Tucson High School Finance Office prior to the first day of practice in that activity. No delayed or deferred payments will be accepted.
There is a $195.00 activity fee limitation per student, $260.00 per family. You may transfer your participation fee to another sport within the school year prior to the first game of the season of that sport. After the first game, the fee is no longer transferable. Activities that required tryouts and then go through a participation cut process must be paid within two weeks after tryouts/practices have started once the student has made the team. Activities that go through the tryout and cut process require all participants who make the team to pay their participation fee before they can return to practice.
