Athletics Policy

Student/Athletes Policy
Highland Prep adheres to the following policies for all student/athletes.

Student/Athlete Eligibility

  1. Student/athletes must not be 19 years old before September 1st of their senior year.
  2. Student/athletes must maintain a 2.00 grade point average with no grades below a “C” level.
  3. Student/athletes must submit the following:
  • Athletics Participation Packet
  • Pre-participation Physical Evaluation form
  • Copy of Birth Certificate
  • Copy of Insurance Card
  • Participation Fee

The Student/Athlete Commitment

  1. Attendance at all meetings, practices, and games is required. Special circumstances “release time” should be truly special and communicated by the student/athlete and parent to the coach at least 48 hours in advance.
  2. Academic and behavior expectations take priority over athletic participation. Students must meet such expectations prior to participation in meetings, practices, and games. This includes attending after-school tutoring and serving after-school detention.
  3. Quitting is contrary to the Highland Prep athletic philosophy. We believe the student/athlete who has been selected to a team had made a commitment to the school, teammates, and coaches. A student/athlete quitting a team after the tryout period will be prohibited from all new extra-curricular activities until the season of the sport is completed.

Student/athletes that do not fulfill these commitments will be subject to appropriate discipline from coaches and/or administration and will be ineligible for postseason recognition and awards.

Student/Athlete Code of Conduct

  1. To acknowledge that participation in athletics is a privilege that demands good sportsmanship.
  2. To demonstrate self-control and respect for others (including other coaches, other athletes, and spectators) at all times.
  3. To treat opponents with respect, shake hands after competitions, and congratulate their performance.
  4. To respect the integrity and accept the judgment of coaches, officials, and administrators.
  5. To acknowledge that behavior while in uniform is a reflection of you, your team, your school, and your community.
  6. To respect all athletic equipment (both school and opponents) and athletic facilities (both home and away).
  7. To perform in accordance with all rules set forth in the student code of conduct during practices and games.

Student/athletes that do not abide by athletic and/or school disciplinary codes will be suspended from athletic participation by coaches and/or administration and may not be eligible for postseason recognition and awards.
