Athletic Participation Contract for the 2015-2016 school year.
I,(student name), having the desire to participate in athletics for Imagine Schools At West Gilbert, promise to follow the training rules and expectations listed below. I will conduct myself in a manner that is a credit to myself, my family, my team, and my school. I realize that I am the one responsible for following the rules. I realize that my parents, my teammates, or any member of the Imagine Schools At West Gilbert community, may report any violations of this contract. Failure to live up to this contract will result in possible consequences ranging from running sprints to dismissal from the team. A conference with parent(s) will be required for serious offenses.
A. I will abstain from illegally consuming or possessing alcoholic beverages.
B. I will abstain from the use or possession of tobacco in any form.
C. I will abstain from all illegal use or possession of drugs, including “look alike” drugs.
D. I will abstain from any serious violations such as, but not limited to, bullying, hazing, illicit and/or inappropriate internet or cell phone usage, etc.
E. I will abide by all curfews given by the coach.
Any athlete breaking rules A, B, C, D, and / or E mentioned above, will serve the following consequences:
First Offense: Athlete will be suspended from athletic participation for one game.
Second Offense: Athlete will be suspended from all athletic participation for the season.
All athletes must be currently enrolled and must have a passing grade in each class.
Grades are checked on Fridays and any athlete having a GPA below 2.0 or an F in any class will be suspended from participation in any games beginning Monday immediately following the Friday grade check through the next Monday. During the suspension athletes are expected to continue to attend practices and come to games to show support.
If an athlete has improved their grades (to reflect a GPA of 2.0 or higher and no F's in any class) over the course of the week, the suspension will be lifted once grades have been checked again on the next Friday. If the GPA remains below 2.0 or the student still has an F in the same class or now has an F in any other classes, the suspension will continue.
Supervision of Activities
No Imagine Schools West Gilbert student or athlete is to be in the school building at any time unless he/she is under the supervision of a coach or teacher. Students are to be with their teachers at dismissal and will then re-enter the building through the front office. Students should immediately change and report to practice. This rule also applies to weekends, school vacations, and days when school is not in session.
Student Attendance in School
Any student that participates in an athletic event or practice must be in school the day of the practice or event and on time. A student would be excused for a family illness, emergency, or a funeral. At no time will it be a practice to sleep in on the day of a game / event, nor will it be acceptable to miss the day after a game / event. It will be up to the coaches and attendance office to monitor this situation and to be certain that the school philosophy is being followed. If you are not to school on time or if you leave early on a game day you will not play the first quarter / half of the game.
Any student who misses the day of school on a game day or is to serve a detention or suspension the day of a game will NOT be permitted to play that day’s game.
There is a one-time $50.00 fee due for each sport that the student athlete participates in. This fee will be charged for each sport (excluding cheer) each season to offset the many fees that are part of a sports program. These fees include: league fees, referee fees, field rentals, equipment replacement, etc.
Transportation to and from games is the responsibility of the athlete. Permission slips are sent home prior to a game if students need to leave school before the regular dismissal time and must be signed and returned prior to the game in order for the athlete to play. At no time will any staff members or coaches be permitted to drive an athlete to a game.
Uniforms are the property of Imagine Schools West Gilbert and are loaned to the player for the duration of the season. Uniforms should be washed and cared for properly during this time (machine wash COLD, air dry or tumble dry LOW HEAT, do not iron printed areas, do not dry clean).
At the end of the season, uniforms must be returned to the coach in the condition they were given to the player. Any uniforms that are lost or any with damage to the uniform will result in a $60 fee to be paid by the player, which is due within 15 days of the end of the season. Cheer uniforms are the exception. They are not loaned and are the property of the student. They are measured to fit and are to be purchased by the parent/guardian.
