requirements

Scholastic Achievement Award eligibility requirements are as follows:

  1. The skater must be an OMGHA registered hockey player 10U/Squirt level or above.  Mites and Supermites are not eligible for the SAA program. 
  2.  6th graders and above  must maintain a minimum 3.0 grade point average on a 4.0 marking scale when combining the first two school grading periods (trimester 1 & trimester 2).  4th & 5th graders must have an average grade of a 3.0.  
    • The grade point average is calculated on the straight letter grade and any +/- will not affect the average.  For all non-letter grade subjects, the grade point average will be calculated using a grade conversion scale  (Secondary: A: 4.0, B: 3.0, C: 2.0, D: 1.0, F: 0.0; Elementary: 4, 3, 2, 1).  Please note: Trimester 1 & 2 report cards reflecting a GPA less than 3.0 are ineligible. Please do not complete the application if your player's GPA is less than 3.0. Rounded scores will not be accepted. The minimum GPA to achieve the secondary Honor Roll for the Osseo School District is lower than the requirements for SAA.
    • Grades for all subjects in trimester 1 and trimester 2, including Phy Ed, Art, Music, if assessed, are used in the calculations of the grade point average.
    • Grading Periods

      Public Schools:  Applications will include an upload of the eligible Trimester 1 and Trimester 2 Report Card (A District 279 trimester 2 elementary report card will reflect both trimester 1 and 2 grades in one document; The secondary report cards will need to be copy & pasted into one document (preferred or uploaded separately) here (if the report card does not reflect a 3.0 GPA, do not submit application).

      Private Schools:   Students attending private schools or public schools outside ISD #279 should use their grading periods that most closely match the corresponding ISD # 279 (Osseo/Maple Grove schools) grading periods. Note: If your child's school does not provide both trimesters on one document or follows a different report card schedule, email your documents to ScholasticAchievement@omgha.com

      Home Schools:  Players who are home schooled are eligble to submit an application. A progress report will need to be uploaded. Contact Kristina Kampa or Bridget Erickson if you have any questions.

  3. The Scholastic Awards Achievement Ceremony will include a character component. Each travel team will nominate one player who best represents the traits promoted by the #11forJacob movement. The nominated player should be an excellent example of a player working hard to live these traits both on and off the ice, in the classroom, and at home.  The nominated player may meet the established scholastic requirements, but this is NOT required. Individual head coaches may determine how the players are selected from their teams. The Jacob Wetterling Resource Center (JWRC) has a number of resources available for teams looking for ways to embed these traits within their team culture. Please reach out to us for support if needed.  Each head coach will click this link to fill out the form by the end of the winter season. **The link is currently live. All head coaches must submit their nominations no later than March 28, 2021. 

 #11forJacob Movement - Character Traits This movement centers around 11 simple traits that Jacob valued: Be fair, Be kind, Be understanding, Be honest, Be thankful, Be a good sport, Be a good friend, Be joyful, Be generous, Be gentle with others, Be positive.
