Student Eligibility

The four years in which you represent your high school in interscholastic athletic competition conducted under the auspices of the North Dakota High School Activities Association (NDHSAA) may be four of the most enjoyable years in your young life. As you compete, your school will have local rules and regulations you must follow in order that your interscholastic participation and competition can be a profitable educational experience. The NDHSAA also has rules and regulations incorporated into the Association's Constitution and By-Laws to which students, as well as school personnel and fans, must adhere.

To aid with eligibility questions, we have created two documents. Please contact the NDHSAA office for questions concerning eligibility.

The first document describes the By-Laws of the NDHSAA that apply to you and your athletic eligibility. It is designed to help you safeguard your athletic eligibility while you participate in interscholastic athletics. You are strongly urged to review the following material with your principal, coaches, and especially with your parents to be eligible for high school competition. Complete information may be found in the NDHSAA Constitution & By-Laws. Safeguarding Your Eligibility.pdf

The second document is a condensed version of eligibility.
