Players will be assisted with enrolment and course selection. Regular contact is made with all schools and players to monitor attendance and behavior. Players must also strive to maintain a high academic standing in order to remain eligible to play.

2. Players who have graduated from High School will be expected to enroll part time in either Lakeland College or Reeves Business College. High School Upgrading, University Transfer and Business courses are recommended. Once again attendance, behavior and academic standing are constantly monitored in order to remain eligible to play.
