Player Expectations

  • Each student athlete will:

    • Will not be failing any class or have a D in more than one class to be academically eligible for the week. At the start of the second week of ineligibility, the student may be removed from the team at the discretion of the principal and coach.
    • Display respectful and appropriate behavior at all times in line with building PBIS policies and show good sportsmanship.
    • Sign and return the D15 Code of Conduct Contract. Participation in extracurricular activities is a privilege, not a right. Therefore, compliance with the Code of Conduct is required.
    • Attend at least half the school day on the day of competition or practice. This includes absences due to a doctor’s appointment. Exceptions are made when attending a funeral.
    • Participate in P.E. in order to participate in any after-school scholastics or intramural activities.
    • Wear proper athletic shoes and socks. Wear the appropriate team uniform that is provided. Understand that, in the event the assigned uniform is damaged or lost, the parent/guardian must replace the uniform at the current replacement cost. Launder and return the assigned uniform to the coach at the end of the season.

Parent Expectations

  • Parents/guardians of a student athlete will:

    • Have all forms and fees to coach prior to the first non-conference competition.
    • Submit the following documents prior to tryouts:
      • A current physical for your child should be on file with the school nurse. Physicals are valid for 13 months.
    • Return these documents prior to the first practice (they will be provided at tryouts):
      • Emergency Medical Authorization Card
      • Concussion Information Form
      • CCSD15 Code of Conduct Contract
    • Provide proper athletic shoes and socks.
    • A team uniform will be provided to the student athlete. Replace uniform at current replacement cost in the event the assigned uniform is damaged or lost. Make sure the assigned uniform is laundered and returned to the coach at the end of the season.
    • Pick up your child promptly at the end of the event.
    • Communicate with the coach if the student athlete will be leaving an event with someone else, and who the responsible party will be.
    • Communicate any concerns directly to the coach prior to or after an event—not during an event.
    • Maintain good sportsmanship.

Sportsmanship Expectations

  • According to IESA, the Illinois Elementary School Association, and IHSA, the Illinois High School Association:

    • “Sportsmanship is playing fair, taking a loss or defeat without complaint, not gloating when winning, and generally treating opponents and officials with courtesy, generosity, and fairness.”

    Student athletes, parents, and others attending interscholastic sporting events will:

    • Applaud during the introduction of players, coaches, and officials.
    • Accept all decisions of officials.
    • Treat the competition as a game, not a war.
    • Applaud the performance of ALL participants at the end of the contest. Shake hands with the other team.

Tie Breaker Rule

    1. Head to head play
    2. Highest point differential
    3. Total point differential vs. other District 15 schools
