Physical and Form Reminder (Aug. 4, 2020)
The MHSAA is allowing your 2019-20 physical to work for 2020-21 as long as there aren't any new conditions.  Everyone will be required to fill out and sign the MHSAA Annual Sports Health Questionnaire and we will have that available on Rank One with the other necessary forms.  Anyone that didn't have a physical during the 2019-20 school year will have to get one prior to participating in a sport during the 2020-21 school year.  This will include all athletes 6th grade through 12th grade playing a school sponsored sport.

Sportsmanlike Expectations

A good sport is a true leader within the school and the community. As an athlete, parent or fan of our school, the following points represent sportsmanship behavior you shall display:

  1. Accept and understand the seriousness of your responsibility and the privilege of representing your school and community. Conduct yourself in an exemplary manner before, during, and after contests and events.

  2. Players should learn the rules of their sport thoroughly and discuss them with parents, fans, fellow students, and elementary students to assist in achieving a better understanding and appreciation of the competition.

  3. Treat opponents the way you would like to be treated.

  4. Omit intimidating behavior, including taunting, or making any kind of derogatory remarks to your opponents during the game, especially comments of ethnic, racial, or sexual nature. This is not acceptable behavior.

  5. Wish opponents good luck before the game in a sincere manner.

  6. Respect the integrity and judgment of game officials. Treating them with respect, even if you disagree with their judgment, will make a positive impression of you, your team, and your school in the eyes of the officials and all people at the event.

  7. Win with humility; lose with grace. Do both with dignity.

  8. Athletic events are among the most popular school activities for participants and spectators. These games and competitions provide another learning experience in life. Integrity, fairness, respect, and the principles of good sportsmanship are lifetime values enhanced through athletics.

  9. Parents need to wait 24 hours before approaching a coach with issues from a contest. This gives ample time for both the parent and coach to reflect on the contest and be able to discuss the issue rationally.

  10. It is expected that all fans and athletes conduct themselves in an orderly and self-disciplined manner at all times, both on and off school property throughout the calendar year. Appearance and personal hygiene should be appropriate for travel and other team appearances and consistent with the expectations of the coach, school district, and other team members.
