Eaton Rapids Athletics at a Glance


You can read the Athletic Department handbook at this link, but here are some FAQ’s.


Family/Individual Sports passes: Family and individual sports passes are available at this link or you can navigate to the main page and click on the tickets/passes link.  Family passes are $200 and are available for immediate family only, up to 6.  Individual passes are $75.  The passes are good for all High School and Middle School regular-season sporting events.  


Ticket prices:  All tickets are $7 for regular-season home events. Tickets can be purchased through GoFan or cash/credit card will be accepted at the gate. High School athletes are free with Student ID in the season they are playing. Preschool and Seniors over 60 are free


Attendance: Athletes will not be allowed to compete in an athletic contest or practice unless they have attended school ALL DAY on the day of the contest or practice.  Extenuating circumstances such as funerals, medical appointments, court appearances, etc will be given consideration.


Transportation: On school days, all team members will travel to and from contests by means of transportation provided and organized by the Athletic Director. When special circumstances require that student-athletes travel to or from athletic contests with parents or legal guardians, approval must be received in writing and in advance from the athletic director or his/her designee. School-provided transportation will not be available on Saturdays and Sundays.


Weather: PRACTICE - If school is canceled prior to the start of school because of inclement weather, all practices are canceled. If the weather should permit, the varsity teams may have the possibility of practicing (non-mandatory) later in the day after receiving authorization from the athletic director. If school is canceled during the school day because of inclement weather, all practices will be canceled. CONTEST – On days of inclement weather, the athletic director will announce whether and when contests will be held as quickly as possible.


Extra-Curricular Conflicts: The student-athlete should exercise caution when gaining membership on teams and in activities where conflicts are likely to exist. When a conflict does arise THE STUDENT MUST IMMEDIATELY NOTIFY THE SPONSORS/COACHES INVOLVED. An individual student who attempts to participate in several activities simultaneously may be in a position of conflicting obligations. If it becomes obvious that a student cannot fulfill the obligation of one activity without conflicting with another that student may be asked to withdraw from one of the conflicting activities. Since the athletic and fine arts departments recognize that each student should have the opportunity for a broad range of experiences in the area of co-curricular activities, they will attempt to schedule events in a manner that minimizes conflicts.


Athletic Code: Students must follow the Athletic Code to maintain the privilege of participating in the Eaton Rapids High School Athletic program. The Athletic Code applies 24/7 365 days a year.  Students and Parents are required to sign the Athletic Code of Conduct each year through the Pre-Participation registration process.  You can find the Code of Conduct on pages 12-16 in the Athletic Handbook


Eligibility: Eaton Rapids Highs School and the MHSAA require students to pass 4 of their 6 classes in the previous semester to be eligible to participate in athletics.  In addition, we will have tri-weekly eligibility checks to ensure we are meeting this standard.  Additional requirements are added to those whose GPA falls below 2.0.  You can read more about the requirements on page 12 of the Athletic Handbook.


Communication Procedures: Parent-to-coach communication shall occur before contacting the athletic director unless you have an extenuating circumstance.


Schedules: Updated schedules can be found on


Cancellations: Parents and students are encouraged to sign-up at this LINK to get instant alerts about cancellations.  You can also follow our Facebook and Twitter pages.
