The TSSAA has approved eligibility guidelines of virtual school students. 

Collierville students who attend the Collierville Virtual Academy, and finished the 2020-21 school year taking virtual courses, will be eligible to continue participating. 

They must meet all other TSSAA eligibility requirements and be enrolled in CVA on the first day of school.

If a student with an athletic record who did not finish the 2020-21 school year in virtual classes due to the COVID-19 pandemic chooses to transfer to the CVA, that student will be ineligible to participate on the varsity level in that sport(s) for 12 consecutive months unless they meet the TSSAA transfer rule requirements. 

They could practice and participate on the junior varsity level until that time provided they meet the JV guidelines.

Students that transfer to CVA with no athletic record in the previous twelve months or students that transfer to CVA after completing the highest ending grade at their previous school will be eligible, by TSSAA rule.

If you have any questions concerning CVA and participation in athletics, contact District Athletic Director Jeff Curtis at jcurtis@colliervilleschools.org.
