**PLEASE NOTE: The hockey player must be present at the SAA ceremony to be eligible to receive any prizes.

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.  4th & 5th graders must have an average grade of a 3.0.  Please note: the minimum GPA to achieve the Honor Roll for the Osseo School District is lower than the requirements for SAA. 
  3. The grade point average will be 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  (A: 4.0, B: 3.0, C: 2.0, D: 1.0, F: 0.0).  Please note: 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. 
  4. Grades for all subjects, including Phy Ed, Art, Music, and Homeroom, if assessed, are used in the calculations of the grade point average.
  5. New for 2020: Starting this spring 2020, the Scholastic 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 fill out this form by the end of the winter season, no later than April 13, 2020 (link will go live February 2020). Questions may be directed to Kristina Kampa, Bridget Erickson or OMGHA secretary, Nicole Kustermann -ScholasticAchievement@omgha.com
  6. #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.
