Falcon Parents, the Deer Valley Unified School District, in an effort to continue to provide athletic opportunities in a safe environment, has made a decision to only allow intramural programs on each campus. This means that Hillcrest will be having a 4 week Volleyball program that will allow us to have teams that are created on our campus to compete against each other. We are excited to say that we are looking to have a non-cut volleyball program that will give all students an opportunity to participate. The school will be providing a T-shirt that will be used as a uniform at no cost to the student and we will be having competitions as well as a championship tournament. We ask that all students interested in participating, please complete the register my athlete process as well as having a current physical uploaded into the system.

Thank you.Closed Tryouts/Practices
At Hillcrest it is our desire to create a safe and unbiased atmosphere during tryouts and practices. Therefore it is our policy that all tryouts and practices are closed to everyone; excluding student athletes, coaches and Hillcrest staff. This helps decrease any additional liability in the gym or the field during these activities.

In accordance with the State of Arizona’s regulations and Deer Valley’s Governing Board Policy, only those students deemed academically eligible may participate in extra or co-curricular activities. Athletic Eligibility will be determined every week by the Administration and Athletic Coordinator starting the first Monday after the week of tryouts. If a student-athlete is failing a class (Minimum of 1 F), they will be put on a pending academic list for one week. During this pending period, the student-athlete will still be considered on the team and allowed to participate. If a pending student-athlete is still failing a class (Minimum of 1 F) the following week, the student-athlete will be put on an ineligible list for one week. During this ineligible period the student-athlete will still be considered on the team, allowed to practice, but not allowed to participate in games or travel with the team to away contests. If the student-athlete has a combination of three occurrences during a season (Pending or Ineligible), then they will be dismissed from the team. This will be considered the three strike rule. If a student-athlete is put on the academic pending list, a letter will be sent home with the student-athlete. If a student-athlete reaches the level of strike two (a combination of pending or ineligible), the coach should make direct contact with the parent/guardian to inform them of their student’s academic eligibility status.
Grade checks will be run by Administration and/or the Athletic Coordinator using power schools every Monday morning and the pending/ineligible time period will be Monday-Saturday. Grades are considered for all classes with no exceptions, and it is not looked at on a class to class basis. In the case of a teacher error, then that situation will be dealt with on an individual basis.
Students assigned to OCR/ISS or students who are suspended from school may not participate in any team practices/games from the time of their assignment to OCR/ISS or home suspension until the day following their last day of assignment to OCR/ISS or home suspension. It is the responsibility of the coach to assure that no students assigned to on campus suspension or home suspension be allowed to participate.
Students and parents should be aware that if the student is medically excused from participating in regular physical education classes, they could be ineligible for participation in school athletic programs as stated on the medical excuse from the parent or doctor.
All students are eligible the 1st Monday after the last day of a quarter. Grade checks will not be concluded until the 3rd week of a new quarter.
