    Welcome to the 2020-21 Sports Year!

    We are very excited about the upcoming year in sports with the addition of more coaches and more teams to help support our kids in their endeavors. Before the season gets too involved, I would like to describe our expectations of parents and athletes.

    Athlete Expectations: Work Hard and Be Coachable

    Grades: Athletes must maintain passing grades in all subject areas at all times. We will be doing grade checks every 4.5 weeks to monitor this. Failure to keep passing grades will result in a probationary suspension for 3 weeks from all contests or a possible removal from the team if the coach sees fit. If on probation, the athlete will have 3 weeks to get his or her grades to passing. If the athlete does not, a removal from the team by the athletic department will occur.

    Behavior: Athletes shall be leaders in the school. Behavior in the classroom, on the field and in the locker room will show great sportsmanship. Disciplinary issues that arise at school can affect participation in athletics. The coach will handle disciplinary actions on the team.

    Attendance: Students must be here for at least half the day to participate in events after school. We set the time as arriving to school by 11am. If an athlete goes home from school ill, he or she may not return after school. Athletes that do not participate in PE during the day can be held out of events after school. This does not apply to students not taking PE.

    Parent Expectations:

    Be Positive and Use the 24 HR Rule (Give Yourself and the Coach 24hrs for questions after games)

    At no time should a parent be on the playing field/court for practices or games. This includes before and after games.

    Game Expectations: Support your player, our team and our coaching staff in a positive manner. Officials are doing the best job that they can and may not see everything, frustration with that cannot lead to setting a bad example for our kids. We expect our athletes to learn how to deal with adversity the right way, through hard work and letting actions speak.

    Pick-Up Expectations: Our coaching staff all have family to get home to after practices and games. Please be respectful by making certain your athlete has a ride no later than 15mins after a practice, game or bus return trip. If that is an issue, please arrange with other parents on the team to have your athlete taken home. *No Ride Sharing services (Uber, Lyft) are allowed to pick up students from an event or practice.

    Parking Expectations for Practice: Park in the north parking lot and not along any curb.
