Objectives: Create awareness of Policies and Procedures Improve communication between Parents, Players, Coaches and Administrators Allow Parents/Athletes a time to ask questions
Academic and Athletic Success Policy: If a Student-Athlete is late/absent from school they may not participate in practices or games A note from a doctor, NOT a parent is needed to participate that day Extenuating Circumstances Communication is KEY!
If a Student-Athlete fails ONE course at the Interim or 10-week marking period, he/she may continue to participate on their team. If a Student-Athlete fails TWO or more courses at the Interim or 10-week marking period, he/she is considered ineligible until the next marking period.
Every Student-Athlete needs a current physical to participate in Athletics If a physical is current at the beginning of a season, the Student-Athlete is eligible for THAT sports season Physicals are good for ONE YEAR
Players must ride the bus to away games. A parent may sign out their son/daughter with the coach after an away game to ride home with them. Student-Athletes may NOT ride home with another child’s parent or bring in a note that states they have permission to ride with someone else.
Modified Everyone plays, every game JV Best athletes play the majority of the time, but opportunities to play are still there for everyone Varsity Best athletes play the majority of the time All playing time is based on the coaches discretion
A Student-Athlete/parent has a concern about playing time… Who can I talk to??? #1 – Coach #2 – Athletic Director #3 – HS Principal #4 – Superintendent #5 – Board of Education
Things to consider: Don’t approach a coach after a game in anger. Ask the coach, or call the next day, if there is a time when you can talk with him/her. Encourage your child to talk with the coach first. Always remember we are all here because we want what is best for KIDS!
Yelling at an official will NOT cause them to become a better official. It sets a bad example for the players and ultimately creates a disadvantage for our kids/teams.
Social Media plays a HUGE role in the lives of Student-Athletes and their parents. It can be a very useful tool for spreading and gathering information.
However... Keep all posts POSITIVE Tweet about a win! Post a pic of your teammate scoring a goal! Send a proud message to your child. If you don’t have anything nice to say… Put the phone down!! If you are angry, frustrated or need to vent. Angry/rude postings by anyone, only ends up hurting our kids.

Student-Athletes are encouraged to prioritize their involvement in Non- School sponsored athletics All of our coaches try to make sure athletes know that school sports come before non-school sports If an athlete gets injured in a non-school sport, they are encouraged to let their school coach know ASAP.
