Students may participate in only one team sporting event. They may participate in multiple individual sports and/or talent competition as the schedule allows.
Each district is responsible for close supervision of its participants and must provide one (1) adult for every eight (8) students. Sponsors should insure all students are in attendance at all worship services, on time to all events they are participating in, obey all curfew guidelines, and exhibit positive Christian conduct at all times. Sponsors should consider themselves the spiritual shepherd to their students while at Extravaganza.
