LCPS Athletic Fee Starting in Fall 2009, all students participating in a LCPS athletic program will be required to pay a $100 Athletic Fee. This money is to be collected by each school and we will be billed for our total. The money collected will go to the overall operating budget of LCPS. The collection day for the Spring is today. Each coach will collect their program’s fees and turn them into the Athletic Office. All checks need to be made out to Stone Bridge HS Any student who receives free or reduced lunch will have the fee waived. For information on how to see if you qualify, contact the athletic department or the main office. OnLine payment : instructions are on the athletic website
LCPS Training Rules Important Training Rules that always seem to come up: (see handout) #7 #8 #9
#7 In order to participate in an athletic activity or practice on any given day, an athlete or manager must report to school by 9:15 am and must remain in school that entire day. Exceptions may be made for Doctor or Dental appointments or reasons excused by the Principal. (A Doctor/Dental note is required for this exception)
#8 Any athlete or manager serving suspension or in-school restriction for violation of school rules will be ineligible to practice or play in a scheduled event on the day or days he/she is serving the punishment, including Saturdays. Not eligible to practice or play in a game until the day after the last day of ISR/OSS.
#9 Any athlete or manager who uses or possesses tobacco, drugs, or alcohol during a sports season will be dismissed from the team. LCPS has a zero tolerance policy. Different from many neighboring school systems.
Hazing The student athletic handbook talks at length about hazing and the new legislation making it a class 1 misdemeanor. There are also multiple examples of what constitutes hazing. Please familiarize yourself with this section as Stone Bridge HS will have a “Zero Tolerance Policy” towards hazing.
VHSL Handbook Rules (see handout for complete list of VHSL rules) Scholarship Rule Student athletes must be currently enrolled in not fewer than 5 subjects and have passed 5 subjects the preceding semester. –A subject for which credit has previously been granted may not, if repeated, be used by any student to satisfy the requirements of this rule.
VHSL Handbook Rules (cont.) Semester Rule The student shall not have been enrolled in the last four years of high school for a period of more than eight consecutive semesters, beginning with the semester in which he/she was enrolled for the first time in ninth grade Awards Rule Students may receive permissible awards presented and approved by the school and VHSL – see VHSL handbook and AD!
VHSL Handbook Rules (cont.) Independent Team Rule Student responsibility for sports participation. During the sports season for the relevant sport, a student may, while a member of a school squad or team, engage in interscholastic sports, become a member of, or participate with, an organized team in the same sport which is independent of the school’s control, so long as such participation does not conflict with the school squad or team. Choices Communication is the key
Sportsmanship Sportsmanship is a priority in LCPS VHSL Sportsmanship Awards: –Wachovia Award Stone Bridge HS has won 2 Wachovia Ethics and Integrity Awards (most recently 2 years ago) –Stay in the Game Award (won 2 times) Boys Soccer won officials award for 2011 SET THE EXAMPLE!
Mission StatementMission Statement Good sportsmanship is viewed by Stone Bridge High School as a commitment to fair play, ethical behavior, and integrity. In perception and practice, sportsmanship is defined as those qualities, which are characterized by generosity and genuine concern for others. The ideals of sportsmanship apply equally to all sports. Individuals, regardless of their role in activities, are expected to be aware of their influence on the behavior of others and model good sportsmanship. Expectations of Parents and SpectatorsExpectations of Parents and Spectators Realize that a ticket is a privilege to observe a contest and SUPPORT high school activities, not a license to verbally assault others or be generally obnoxious. Respect decisions made by contest officials. Be an exemplary role model by positively supporting teams in every manner possible, including content of cheers and signs. Respect fans, coaches, and participants. BE A FAN…NOT A FANATIC. Acceptable BehaviorAcceptable Behavior Applause during introduction of players, coaches, and officials. Players shaking hands with opponents who foul out while both sets of fans recognize player’s performance with applause. Cheerleaders lead fans in positive school chants. Handshakes between participants and coaches at the end of a contest. Treat competition as a game, not war. Applause at the end of contest for performances of all participants. Encourage only sportsmanlike conduct. Unacceptable BehaviorUnacceptable Behavior Yelling or waving arms during free throw attempts. Disrespectful yells, chants, or songs. BOOING! Criticizing officials in any way. Refusing to shake hands. Blaming loss of game on officials, coaches, or participants. Laughing or name-calling. Use of profanity or displays of anger that draw attention away from the game.
