Team Eligibility Status
Each school year before a specific sports season begins, a student receiving an “F” in a class for any scheduled grade update or put on Critical Academic Probation is not eligible to try-out. Previous year grades have no effect on eligibility. A student that secures membership on a team will be dismissed from the team if he/she receives an “F” or is put on Critical Academic Probation during the season. Team fees will not be reimbursed.
“People acting together as a group can accomplish things which no individual acting alone could ever hope to bring about.” –Franklin D. Roosevelt
A team can only achieve its full potential when the collective whole becomes greater than the sum of its individual parts. Participants in the BCJASP are expected to consider the team’s needs and the team’s goals ahead of individual needs and goals.
An atmosphere of true sportsmanship will be exhibited for all practices and team activities. Team members will be expected to treat others as they would like to be treated. Unacceptable behavior is, but not limited to:
- Responding to any unsportsmanlike behavior
- Distracting others
- Derogatory comments
