Vienna Grade School Athletic Policy
Name of Student-Athlete: _____________________________________________Grade: _______________
A) Any student-athlete caught in possession of/or using tobacco products, alcoholic beverages, and/or drugs (not prescribed by a medical doctor), will be suspended for the next five contests of that season for the first offense. B) A second offense of Rule #1 by any student-athlete will result in a ten (10) game/contest suspension following the infraction of that season. C) A third offense of Rule #1 will may result in expulsion from all athletic and or club teams (after due process is afforded) for the remainder of their public school career at VGS.
Note: Any reinstatement for participation after expulsion must 1st be formally heard by the athletic director, coaches, and building administration. This procedure will not guarantee reinstatement, however, the right to apply for reinstatement falls within the rights of participation for an extra-curricular activity. Remember that there are no property rights regarding “the right to participate” in an extra-curricular activity. An extra-curricular activity is not a right, but a privilege.
Keep each student-athlete in top physical, mental, and emotional condition
Improve the overall physical, mental and emotional well-being of the student-athlete
Allow for consistency among consequences for rules violations
Any violation during school hours will be dealt with in addition to what is done by the administration under school handbook policy. It should be understood that these are not the only violations that could lead to an expulsion from an athletic or club team. Each coach may add to these rules and they will be clearly communicated to each student-athlete throughout the season as it is deemed appropriate by VGS coaches. These rules remain in effect until the final team activity and or meeting. In addition, the coach may counsel an individual during the off-season or between seasons concerning their behavior as it may impact involvement in their sport(s).
Parent(s) and or guardian(s) are responsible for insurance coverage of students involved in extra-curricular activities. This includes deductibles, premiums, and all other expenses. Vienna Grade School is not responsible for payment of accident expenses incurred through extra-curricular activities. VGS does have access to a student insurance policy from a reputable insurance carrier if parents are interested in inquiring about it.
I understand and agree to abide by all provisions of this policy
