PLYMOUTH HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETIC CODE OF CONDUCT SUMMARY

 

PHILOSOPHY

Responsible educators have shown that the interscholastic athletic program can play an important part in the complete high school curriculum.  Through self-discipline and regular mental and physical conditioning participants may enhance their development on an extracurricular and voluntary basis.  Plymouth High School , by offering an athletic program, extends the privilege of so enriching the mind and body to any students meeting district and W.I.A.A. requirements.  If accepted, this privilege carries certain responsibilities.  The Athletic code presents these responsibilities.

 

SUMMARY OF ATHLETIC RESPONSIBILITIES

Mere participation in the athletic program does not guarantee that all aims will be met or that all opportunities will be realized.  The coaching staff and administration shall make every effort to teach participants the goals for which the program was established.  Privileges always carry responsibilities.  The participant's greatest responsibility is to be a credit to parents, school community and self.

 

ATHLETIC ELIGIBILITY

In order to represent Plymouth High school in any interscholastic competition, a student must meet all eligibility and scholastic requirements of the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association (W.I.A.A.) and Plymouth High School .  Listed below are some of the more applicable:

1.    The participant must be doing passing work in a minimum of four (4) full credit courses. (Comparable to W.I.A.A.

standards) (see academic policy for PHS)

                2.  The participant should report any failures to the coach of the sport in which he/she is involved.

                3.  The participant must be a legal resident of Plymouth Joint School District .

4.  The participant  must turn in a physical examination card, an Athletic Insurance Information Card and a  signed              Athletic Code.  All of this information must be signed by legal guardian.

                5.  A student cannot be over the age of 19 by August 1 of that school year.

 

ATHLETIC CODE VIOLATIONS

Grounds for Suspension:

 

                1.  Using alcohol, tobacco and/or detrimental drugs at any time

                2.  Being involved in the purchase, sale, and/or transportation of alcohol and/or illegal drugs.

                3.  Knowingly loiter in the presence of illegal consumption of alcohol or illegal drugs.

                4.  Stealing of any kind.

                5.  Cheating

                6.  Vandalism

                7.  Hazing- defined as intentionally or recklessly engaging in acts which endangers the physical health or

                       safety of a student for the purpose of initiation or admission into or affiliation with any organization

                       operating in the school.  Under those circumstances, prohibited acts may include any brutality of a

                       physical nature, such as whipping, beating, branding, forced consumption of any food, liquor, drug                                                             or any other substance, forced confinement or any other forced activity which endangers the physical                                                              health or safety of a student. [S.948.52 (2), Wisconsin Statutes]

                8.  Any other unacceptable conduct contrary to the ideas, principles, standards and morals of the school or community.

 

ACADEMIC POLICY FOR ATHLETES

A student's grades will be checked at the end of each quarter, semester, and throughout the school year.  A student who earns an incomplete or an "F" at any of these time periods will be placed on academic probation.  Academic probation will be a period of 5 weeks.  A student will be able to continue participating in his/her activity during this time.  If at the end of the 5-week probation the student is not passing all classes, that student will become ineligible for the remainder of that quarter.  If at the end of that quarter the student is still not earning all passing grades, the suspension will continue.  (Mid quarter grades will be used to determine 5-week grades.)

 

If a student is earning more than 1 "F", that student will be placed on an automatic suspension for 1 quarter without probationary period.  In the case of one time events such as trips, performances, or other activities, the student will be ineligible to participate  with more than 1 F, incomplete, or combination of Fs or incompletes.  The incomplete(s) must be resolved before that event or the student remains ineligible.  Students will be allowed to practice while on probation at the discretion of the coach/advisor.

 

An athlete once placed on suspension must break the string of Fs at a quarter or semester grading period to regain eligibility.

 

It is our belief that a student must be on line for graduation.  If a student fails a required course, he/she must reschedule that class at the earliest time possible to earn credit.

 

It is expected that Plymouth High School students will practice good sportsmanship by showing proper respect and courtesy to all visitors, whether they be player, coach, official or spectator.
