Cape May Tech! You will be a Hawk!
You are eligible to play for your sending school district. So, if you live in Lower Township and attend CMT full-time, but want to play football, you can play football for Lower. The principals from CMT and the sending district just have to agree to let you play.
You can choose, but that decision lasts for a full school year. If you choose CMT, you will only be able to play for your sending district during that school year if CMT does not offer a specific sport. See the example below:
- You are a shared-time student and choose to play a Fall sport for CMT (ex: soccer). You then want to play a Winter sport that is not offered (ex: wrestling). You can play that Winter sport for your sending district. In the Spring, if you then choose to play a sport that CMT offers (ex: baseball), you must play for CMT because you played soccer for CMT in the Fall.
You may participate in high school sports if the local board of education allows it, your parents/guardians are able to demonstrate that you are receiving an academically equivalent education to the local high school, and your parents/guardians are able to prove residency. If you would like to play sports for a high school that services more than one town, like CMT, you would have to be assigned to CMT’s register in the same manner as other students.
