Students must maintain a C– average (77.00 %) to participate in any sports program. Averages are computed prior to each individual sport’s season with the exception of soccer and volleyball. Eligibility for soccer and volleyball is based on the fourth quarter averages of the previous year for all returning students. During the season, players falling behind on school work will be dealt with on an individual basis.
Athletes must come prepared for practice. That includes:
being on time
having proper equipment
T-shirt and shorts or sweats
Athletes must attend all scheduled practice sessions. The only exception is a valid excused absence, which will require a written note from the parent(s) explaining why the student will be (or was) missing from practice. Detentions are not considered a valid excuse.
Uniform and proper athletic shoes are required to play in competition.
During competition, only team members are permitted on the team benches. The team members not playing should be sitting with the coach or in one designated spot.
Athletes and coaches will follow GCA guidelines and dress in “Team Dress” for every game day including travel to and from competition. Tennis shoes are not permitted with Team Dress.
During arranged transportation for out-of-town games, athletes will travel to and from the games on the bus as a team.
Athletes will, at all times, respect coaches, referees, all players, spectators, parents and school administrators.
Profanity, unnecessary physical roughness or any other unsportsmanlike behavior will not be tolerated. Players violating any conduct codes will be subject to game or team suspension.
Coaches should at all times be dressed in “Team Attire” or in some cases, casual clothes for outdoor activities. Coaches should be well groomed.
Athletes who are absent for school on the day of a game or practice will not be able to participate in the sports event on that day.
ANY QUESTIONS OR POLICY EXCEPTIONS WILL BE HANDLED BY ADMINISTRATION
