Activities and Eligibility

All activities are designed to enhance the mission of Lincoln Lutheran. Participation in extra-
curricular activities by students is encouraged, as research has shown that students who participate in extra-curricular activities are more likely to demonstrate success in high school and post-secondary education.

Lincoln Lutheran is a part of the Nebraska School Activities Association (NSAA) and a member of the Centennial Conference for athletics, music, speech, and one-act productions.

Eligibility for High School

Students must meet all requirements of the NSAA to participate in extra-curricular activities. To participate in varsity inter-scholastic competition during their first semester of attendance, students must meet the NSAA domicile requirements. The Activities Director will determine the status of each new student. Students must have successfully completed 20 credits (4 academic classes) during the previous semester to be eligible for participation under NSAA guidelines. Students must also have completed and documented their service hour requirement from the previous school year to be eligible to practice or participate in activities.

Academic checks will be made every week beginning the 4th week of each quarter. Any student failing more than one class will be ineligible to participate in extra-curricular activities until the next academic check is completed. Continued involvement with activities will be based upon a student’s ability to improve his/her grade in such classes to a passing level. Students missing summative assessments may be required to complete the assessment before he/she attends practice for or participates in an extracurricular activity.
