SALC Selection Process

At Cleveland HS, each candidate will be evaluated by their program head coach or sponsor in the following categories:

  • Athletic Team Membership
  • Leadership Skills
  • Community Involvement
  • Citizenship

Program head coaches and/or sponsors use these categories to identify and nominate candidates who will best satisfy our council goals of (1) creating the most competent and effective leadership council now and in the future, and (2) providing the most meaningful leadership experience possible for everyone involved. 

Administrator and Coach Evaluations: Athletic administrators will discuss candidates for the SALC with their coaches as well as campus administration. The student athlete leadership program at Cleveland High School is predicated on the close working relationships students have with coaches and administrators. 

Athletic Director Observations: We strive to get to know as many student-athletes as possible at Cleveland ISD. We monitor practices, attend games and observe student-athletes as they interact with teammates, coaches, and administrators. Further, we have the opportunity to observe students as they serve in other capacities of student leadership at Cleveland High School. We will take into consideration all important and valuable information when necessary in order to make a fair and complete selection.  


Members of SALC: 

Our council will be made up of 19 total student athletes. We will have a council member from each of the offered athletic programs at Cleveland High School: Football, Cheerleading, Volleyball, Cross Country (boys and girls), Girls Basketball, Boys Basketball, Tennis (Boys and girls), Softball, Baseball, Soccer (boys and girls), Track and Field (boys and girls), Powerlifting (boys and girls), and Golf (boys and girls).
