With More Athletes Ineligible for Sports, Winston-Salem / Forsyth County Schools Recommend Dropping Surrogacy Requirement |  Local News

“For the majority of high school students, they haven’t seen a class since March 2020, and we are penalizing them and taking away the only lifeline they have, and that really worries me, especially when you look at what the alternatives are, what they might be involved in if they don’t play football or softball, ”Crowley said during the session.

Jones said she spoke to athletic directors and coaches about the high number of ineligible athletes. A football coach told him his school usually had a varsity and junior team, and that he would be lucky if he could field a team this year.

“Anything we can do to get these kids back into something they love to do (we should),” Jones said. “Honestly, that could keep a lot of kids in high school instead of dropping out.”

In a typical year, about 2% of the school system’s 5,000 student-athletes fail to meet state and local requirements to compete in sports, according to statistics that school officials will present to the board on Tuesday.
