1.0 Purpose and Scope
1.1 Intercollegiate Athletic Policies
1.1.1 Responsibility for the supervision of the administration of California Community College intercollegiate athletic programs is exercised through the Commission on Athletics (COA). The COA is under the authority of the Board of Directors of the Community College League of California (CCLC). The COA delegates to the Board of Directors of the Chief Executive Officers of the California Community Colleges the power to review the policies and procedures of the COA as specified in the Athletic Code of the California Community Colleges.
1.1.2 All colleges participating in intercollegiate athletics are required to be members in good standing of the COA and to function under the Athletic Code of the California Community Colleges.
1.2 The Los Rios District Board of Trustees recognizes that students who represent the District's colleges through their participation in intercollegiate athletics are responsible to a set of unique academic requirements. This obligation indicates that a structure to assist them in meeting those requirements is essential. In response to this necessity, the Board of Trustees has established the Academic Advising Program for Student Athletes at each of the District's colleges with the purpose of providing all student athletes with the support necessary to assist them in developing and achieving their educational objectives.
