Grading

Grading is based on participation, effort and attitude during team events, including but not limited to: practice, weight lifting & conditioning, tournaments, team meetings and individual meetings with the coach. Effort and attitude evaluation is determined by the Head and Assistant Coaches throughout the season. If a student is cut or quits the team prior to the end of the semester they will receive a failing grade if less than 80% of the semester has been completed, or the student does not withdraw from the course. At the time of being cut or quitting the extramural racquetball team each student is responsible for dropping the course immediately if less than 80% of the course has been completed to avoid negative academic marks.
