Participation in athletics at Costa Mesa High School is a privilege, not a right, and selection to many of the sport programs is dependent on showing the necessary skills and abilities of that particular sport.


Continued inclusion in all sports at Costa Mesa High School is dependent on displaying: good citizenship in both the school and community, a positive attitude, strong effort, consistent attendance and continual punctuality. Insubordination, poor effort, multiple absences or multiple tardies are all reasons for dismissal from a sport program and accompanying PE Athletic class.


The time commitment and level of participation in an Athletics PE class, even in the offseason, are much greater than that of a regular PE class. PE Athletics classes practicing during 7th or 8th period rarely get released by the normal end of the school day (3:05).


Regardless of the actual practice time, PE Athletics classes are the same as all other CMHS classes in that a student-athlete must attend all practices unless they have an excused absence (Please contact coaches prior to any missed practices).


To be in a PE Athletic class:


  • The student-athlete needs to be participating in that sport for CMHS during that school year or the following school year.
  • The student-athlete must turn in a completed Athletics Clearance Packet at the start of the school year.
  • The student-athlete must get prior approval from the head coach to be in the class.


    Student-athletes quitting a sport during the season will be placed in a regular PE class and will not be able to change to another athletic class until the end of the season, at which time they may request to join a different PE Athletics class at the approval of the coach. If the athlete is a junior or senior and they do not need PE credit, they will be dropped from athletics.


    All NMUSD athletic teams operate with the understanding that selection will be based solely on demonstrated performance and not due to any outside affiliations (e.g. Club Teams) nor participation in offseason voluntary fee based athletic camps.


    Additionally, all extra-curricular activities (including athletics) within NMUSD operate free of charge to all of our students. While donations or contributions may be requested, there is no connection to a student’s ability to participate and their ability/willingness to contribute financially.


    NMUSD programs, activities, and student clubs are available to all persons without regard to actual or perceived ancestry, age, color disability, gender, gender identity, gender expression, nationality, race, ethnicity, religion, sex, sexual orientation, or association with a person or a group with one or more of these actual or perceived characteristics.
