Missing Classes & Travel
Parents and students are advised that participation on school teams does include team competition with other schools involving travel and missing classes. Students are released from classes for both home and away games. For sports such as volleyball and basketball, students are required to miss up to eight afternoons of classes per team. It is the responsibility of the student to keep up with the assignments and the activities in all classes.
Trying out for school teams is a decision of the parent and the student. It is a competitive team dynamic and although this is an opportunity to build capacity in all students, there are realities of competition in all sports. Teams members are selected based on a range of criteria but not exclusive to athletic ability, commitment, dedication to the team, work ethic and sportsmanship. Both community coaches and school staff make up the expertise required to support students to develop their healthy leadership in sport.
