Sports Seasons 1- Season Definition: The regulations of the WIAA, the Dairyland Conference, and the Eleva Strum Schools shall govern all sports seasons. Seasons shall end with the state tournament. 2-Sign-Up Meetings: A “sign up” meeting for a given sport may be held prior to the start of the season and during a sport season which may be in progress. This meeting would be for distributing WIAA cards, etc. and should not involve athletes during their practice time of another sport. 3-Transfer Sports within Season: Athletes who are out for a sport may not transfer to another sport which is held during the same sport season without permission of the head coach of the sport in which he/she is currently involved. 4-Transfer Sports Successive Seasons: Unless the head coach of the initial sport involved gives his/her permission, an athlete who is out for a sport may not drop the sport and start practice for another sport, which is in the following season until the initial sport season is completed.
1.WIAA regulations will govern requirements on physicals. a.Students will be required to have and athletic physical every other year. b.The physical must be given by a physician, physicians assistant, P.A./or certified nurse practitioner. c.Cost of the physical examination is the responsibility of the individual athlete.
Emergency Care of Athletic Injuries 1- Reporting Injuries: All injuries should be reported at the time of the injury to the coach who is in charge of the practice or game. 2-Medical Card: An Emergency Medical Card should be on file with the school nurse for each athlete.
The Eleva-Strum School District no longer provides student or athletic insurance. Any coverage is up to the individual family. paying the medical or dental bill.
1.RELATED TO VIOLATIONS OF DRUG, ALCOHOL OR TOBACCO USE. Athletes of the senior high school shall abide by the WIAA Rules of Eligibility in regards to conduct throughout the calendar year. Current state statute and school policy will serve as the standard criteria for determining if a violation has occurred. Athletic code violations include the use or possession of tobacco products (smoking or chewing), alcohol or controlled substances. An athlete receiving communion at a religious service would not be considered in violation of the athletic code. However, toasting with alcohol at weddings, graduations or other ceremonies would be considered a violation of the athletic code. Athletes are directed not to place themselves in the presence of others who are illegally possessing or using alcohol, tobacco, or any controlled substances. This policy is not meant to include public sponsored events supervised by responsible adults following all applicable laws. It is the expectation of this code that an athlete leave, disassociate him/herself and not knowingly linger in the presence of others illegally possessing alcohol, tobacco, or controlled substances. Eligibility and Ineligibility
The WIAA is against the use of anabolic- androgenic steroids and other performance enhancing substances (PES).
Do not use. Drugs that are illegal or could be harmful if taken in excessive amount. Possession or use violates WIAA code.

Creatine Caffeine-enhanced products – too much caffeine can cause jitteriness, nervousness, headaches, difficulty concentrating or sleeping, increased heart rate or blood pressure. Small amounts of caffeine can produce these effects in some people. Energy drinks- Red Bull, Amp, Advance by Powerade, Coke Blak Herbal Caffeine: Guarana, Cacao, Kola, Mate, Cola Nut, Green Tea Extract, Methylxanthine (chemical caffeine) Vivarin AAKG Co Enzyme Q HMB No Doz NO2 Ginseng Pyruvate Protein Powders: Most diets supply adequate protein.
Violations of the Athletic Code will be cumulative during an athletes career. However, an athlete who completes one year without violation, “wins back” his/his status prior to the last violation. Any student who voluntarily turns him/herself in for a first violation of this code shall have the penalty reduced by ten percent of the original amount specified in the code. If ten percent results in a fraction of a contest, standard rounding rules will apply. For example, a students penalty, when reduced by ten percent results in a 1.5 contest suspension. According to standard rounding rules, the student would serve a two contest suspension. However, if a students penalty, when reduced by 10%, results in a 1.4 contest suspension, a one contest suspension would be served.
A first violation results in a suspension from athletic competition for a period of 20% of the contests based on the regular season of the sport. Any remaining percentage of that suspension not served shall be recalculated and applied to the next sport in which that athlete participates in and completes. If the suspension carries over into the WIAA tournament series, the athlete will miss the entire tournament series. This clause pertains to team tournament as well as the individual tournament series. Any remaining percentage of that violation will carry over to the next season of participation. Any student serving a penalty during a sport must remain in the sport in order for the penalty to be valid. If a student quits the sport, any remaining percentage of that violation will carry over to the next season of participation.
A second violation results in a suspension from athletic competition for a period of 30% of the contests based on the regular season of the sport. All other sanctions listed under the first violation apply to second violations as well. A student with two violations in the same season will serve his/her suspension consecutively, not concurrently
The third violation results in loss of eligibility for all athletic events for one calendar year from the date of the athletic code violation. If an athlete or participant has an additional offense(s) while already serving a year’s suspension, then the one year suspension will start over again dating from the time of the additional suspensions. A student desiring to participate again after the third offense must indicate his/her desire to that effect and must remain violation-free for the entire year of his/her penalty. Upon return, he/she will return to Step 2(2 nd Offense).
General procedures if suspected of violating the Athletic Code Your coach, athletic director, and principal will interview you as to the reason(s) for suspected violations in an effort to confirm or refute the suspicion. As a school we have the authority to investigate if a student athlete is suspected of violating our athletic policy. The A.D. and principal will further investigate through interviews with those who may be aware of violations first-hand, those who may have limited knowledge of the violations, or those who may be involved with such violations. Any and all allegations of violations will be seriously addressed and investigated. The approved and appropriate remedies and consequences for the type of violation will be applied and enforced.
Scholastic Eligibility: Student Must Maintain Passing Grades To Ensure Eligibility A student receiving one failing grade at mid-quarter of semester-long courses will be declared ineligible until a passing grade in that particular class is regained. Eligibility will be reinstated as soon as the grade is brought up to passing. Any student who receives a failing grade at mid-quarter is required to provide weekly progress reports to the coach from all classes in order to remain eligible throughout the grading period.
A student receiving one failing grade at the end of the quarter for semester long courses is ineligible for 1 week (Friday to Friday). The student is required to provide weekly progress reports to the coach from all classes in order to remain eligible throughout the grading period. Progress Reports forms are obtained from the school office. A student failing at the end of any quarter is ineligible for one week. (Friday- Friday) A student receiving two or more failing grades at quarter or semester is ineligible for the next 15 consecutive school days. At the end of the 15 school days, the student who received failing grades is required to provide weekly progress reports to the coach for all classes in order to remain eligible throughout the remaining grading period. Note: WIAA rules state that eligibility for contests will be reinstated on the 16 th school day. "The world is so fast that there are days when the person who says it can't be done is interrupted by the person who is doing it."
At semester, semester grades are used to determine eligibility. Athletes receiving a failing grade or an incomplete as a semester grade are ineligible for 15 consecutive days. Note: WIAA rules state that eligibility for contests will be reinstated on the 16th school day. Penalties incurred fourth quarter or second semester of the previous year will be enforced on the first day of school.
The Eleva-Strum administration and coaching staff will not tolerate conduct unbecoming of an athlete. Participating in athletics is a privilege, not a right. Conduct unbecoming of an athlete may include, but is not limited to the following: Stealing in or out of school Flagrant misbehavior in class Out-of-school suspension Disorderly conduct as defined by state laws in or out of school Criminal Behavior Disrespectful attitude to school personnel Other actions which adversely affect and relate to the management of the school Harassment and hazing Possessing cell phones/cameras in the locker room
The athletic director and administration will determine minimum penalties for any other unacceptable conduct to the ideals, principles and standards of the school district and the WIAA. Minimum Action-Conference with athlete and parent Maximum Action-Suspension from athletic competition for a period of one year In addition to the previous behaviors listed, all athletes are expected to follow the rules and regulations as established by their coaches. These rules will be distributed to every participant.
Training Violations: After a training violation, athletes who go out for a sport simply to become eligible to participate in another sport of their choice must complete the first sport in full before they can become eligible for the later sport. There may be an exception in case of an emergency injury. If there were a question as to the reason an athlete wishes to quit a sport, the administration will decide if the reason is acceptable. Reporting Violations: Any person who reports a student must contact the principal and sign a written statement within seven calendar days describing the circumstances under which the person has observed or has known the student to be in violation, (or a police report within 90 days from the date of occurrence).
Multiple Violations: Violation of the code of involving behavior, alcohol, drugs, and/or tobacco will not be considered separately. The first violation of any of the above will be considered as the first violation, the second violation of any of the above will be considered as the second violation, etc. Any conviction for a misdemeanor or felony is automatically a violation of the Athletic Code.
A student can switch sports during the season ONLY by consent of BOTH coaches. If two sports were in action at the same time, the sport with a game being played that day would take precedence. Otherwise, practice of the sport started first would take precedence.
Dress Code Definitions/Standards The coaches, administration and school board have agreed to the following standards in regards to appearance and hairstyles.

This applies on or off the athletic field or court. 2.Side view of the head: The hair cannot be lower than the earlobe; athlete must be clean shaven 3.Sideburns cannot be lower than the earlobe or wider at the bottom than at the middle. 4.Back view of head-the hair cannot touch or be over the collar.
