This requirement must be met by the end of the first semester of the student’s senior year. Which sports are GHSA-sanctioned? Baseball Lacrosse Softball Soccer Basketball Swimming Tennis Cheerleading Cross Country Track & Field Volleyball Football Golf Gymnastics Wrestling Where do students get a waiver form? Once a student has met the Personal Fitness waiver criteria, s/he should pick up a waiver form from the Counseling Office. What is the process for obtaining the Personal Fitness waiver? After successful completion of one season of marching band, one season of a varsity GHSA-sanctioned sport offered at CHS, or two years of a “sub varsity” GHSA-sanctioned sport offered at CHS, the student will obtain a Waiver Form from the Counseling Department. The student should complete the form, have his/her successful participation verified by the Band Director or the Head Coach of the team, and return it to the Counseling Department. The completed, signed form must be turned in by the last day of the school year during which the eligibility requirement was met. Does the student receive actual credit or a grade when using the Personal Fitness waiver? No. Students who waive Personal Fitness will have a Personal Fitness Exemption Code added to their transcripts designating the waiver. No grade or credit will be assigned.
