A. Participating on an athletic team demands a great deal of time and hard work. Serious consideration prior to the start of the sports season must be given when deciding to participate. When a student decides to participate they are encouraged to complete the sports season. However, a student may leave the team during the first three weeks of the season without any penalty, providing they conference with the coach and return all equipment issued to them.
B. For information on the Cut Policy please refer to page 10 of Interscholastic Athletic Handbook.
A.Interscholastic athletic program participants must be given a physical examination and must receive final approval for participation by the school physician.
B.Students who are injured in athletics must report all injuries no matter how minor to the Coach.
C.When an athlete is injured and requires medical treatment, an accident report must be filled out and given to the school nurse as soon as possible.
D.If a student has a physican-attended injury or is absent with an illness for five or more days, they must have the approval of a physician before they can return to the activity.
Participation in athletics involves some risk of physical injury. It may occur in either “contact” or “non-contact” sports. Many injuries are truly accidental in nature and involve no negligence by anyone, including a student and their parents or guardian assume the risks for injuries to occur.
A.In order for a student to participate in a practice or game, a 9th through 12th grade student must be in school by 10:45 AM and a 7th or 8th grade student must be in school by 10:30 AM unless excused for a legal reason other than illness. Any absence from school must be an accepted excusable absence.
B. Athletes will be allowed three unexcusable cuts from practice during the course of a season. These absences cannot be the day before a game. The athlete must let the coach know as early as possible that they will be missing practice. If the coach is unavailable, the Director of Athletics or his secretary must be notified. If a fourth unexcused absence occurs during a sport season, the athlete will be suspended for one game. If it occurs a fifth time the student is dropped from the team.
