It is the intent of athletic programs to provide opportunities for participation for as many students as possible. Budget constraints, safety concerns, and available facilities, however make a "no cut" policy difficult. Prior to the start of a season, coaches will advise parents and students of the try-out and participation policy for each sport. Every effort will be made to accommodate as many students as possible with regard to safety, playing time, and available facilities, but coaches may follow pre-established and announced cutting policies.
The fostering of participation and sportsmanship, as well as the physical, emotional, and ethical development of a student in a competitive situation are emphasized. Inherent in this philosophy is the belief that winning is not the major goal of an athletic program. Coaches are encouraged to play every team member when game circumstances permit use of substitutions.
There is a user fee for athletes who participate on a team. The user fee amount per sport is $180.00. User fee can be paid online (see fee payment & waiver information in our school athletic page). User Fees are paid through Unipay, not FamilyID. Please do not pay the user fee until your child has been selected and on the team roster. A separate letter will go out regarding when to pay the fee.
The late bus times: There will be a 4:15pm Newton bus for Enrichment activities. A 4:30 METCO bus and a 5:15 Newton bus for athletes.
