WAIVER OF LIABILITY AND RELEASE USE OF PERSONAL EQUIPMENT FOR PRACTICES AND GAMES
Proper execution of this equipment waiver of liability and release by the participating student athlete’s parent or guardian is an express condition of that student athlete’s use of personal equipment for practices and games for the Steamboat Springs School District RE-2.
 
Safety of the student athlete while participating in sports is one of the Steamboat Springs School District’s top priorities. To satisfy that priority, the District provides equipment to its players which it believes to be the most appropriate for the prevention of injury. Should the participating student athlete and the parent or guardian wish to use their own personal equipment, rather than the District-issued equipment, Steamboat Springs School District cannot be held responsible in the event that the personal equipment does not perform to the same standards as the District-issued one. The participating student athlete and the parent or guardian must understand the risk associated with using personal equipment for practices and games.
 
In consideration of your son or daughter electing to use personal equipment in place of the District-issued equipment for games and practices, I hereby agree that I, on behalf of myself, my spouse, and my son or daughter, my heirs, assigns, and any other person acting on my or son or daughter’s behalf, hereby expressly waive, disclaim, and release Steamboat Springs School District RE-2, its trustees, employees, and representatives from and against any and all claims, costs, liabilities, expenses and judgments related in any way to any injury sustained by my son or daughter as a result of  my son or daughter’s use of  personal equipment rather than the District-issued equipment. I also agree to have my helmet recertified with a NOCSAE approved certification every year along with District owned helmets. Verification of this recertification will be provided to the head football coach of my school no later than the first day of practice in August.

POLICIES FOR STUDENT ACTIVITY/ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT - SUMMARY 2019/2020
I. START OF SEASON
Players will not be allowed to begin practice until all forms (Impact Testing included) are turned in and fees paid. It is the responsibility of the head coach to ensure that this policy is followed. All students who are not enrolled at SSHS (home schooled, private school, adjacent school district, or are trans fer students to the district) must schedule a meeting with the athletic director before the season begins.
II. ELIGIBILITY
SSHS has a "No Pass ? No Play" eligibility which is established on a weekly basis. Students, who are deemed to be failing one or more classes on Friday afternoon, will not be allowed to participate in athletics or any other school activity from the following Monday through Sunday (no recovery considered until following week).
A. It is the head coach's responsibility to verify that all students who are participating are eligible to do so. Coaches will be given a preliminary eligibility check on Tuesday of each week. Coaches should inform participants if they are on the list with a D or an F. It is ultimately the responsibility of the participant to check their eligibility weekly. Coaches will then be given the actual eligibility on Monday morning every week, they will notify all players on Monday of their eligibility status for the remainder of the week.
B. It is the responsibility of the private school student, home school student and students from adjacent school districts to have their school’s main office notify the SSHS athletic department on a weekly basis of their eligibility for participation in any athletics at SSHS during the playing season. This information should be e-mailed to the athletic secretary by Friday at noon of each week.
C. All players must be enrolled in five classes or earning the equivalent of 2.5 Carnegie unit per semester to be eligibility to participate in any CHSAA activities.
D. All transfer students, other than 9th graders at the start of the school year, will be required to produce transcripts and written verification of participation in sports from transferring schools.

F. All parents and/or students will be notified via Infinite Campus messenger when their child’s name appears on the warning list.
III. USE/POSSESSION OF ALCOHOL, TOBACCO OR DRUGS
Steamboat Springs High School has a no tolerance policy for the use/possession of alcohol, tobacco, and drugs. All students are expected to adhere to these policies year around. The policy will begin upon graduation from eighth grade and will end upon graduation from high school. Athletes and other student activity participants represent SSHS in the community year around. They are expected to demonstrate the best of the SSHS student population at all times. Any athlete /activity participant who violates this expectation and policy will receive the following consequences, which accumulate over the student’s high school career at SSHS. An athlete/activity participant who is found in possession of or using tobacco in any form, drinking or having alcoholic beverages in their possession or, misusing, possessing, selling or distributing prescription or illegal drugs at any time during the duration of their time at SSHS including summers and breaks, shall be disciplined.
Definition of Season:
Any game/contest activity suspensions not served will automatically roll over to the next season/activity in which the student chooses to participate, even if that goes into the following school year. Please note that all consequence calculations for this policy will be based on a percentage of the maximum number of varsity contests/games allowed by the CHSAA for each particular sport or activity. If the CHSAA does not designate a maximum number of varsity contests/games/performances, the calculation will be based on a decision by the Athletic/Activity Director in collaboration with Principal or Assistant Principal.

Level 1 – 30% Defined: Suspended for 30% of sport/activity season or the equivalent of 30% of a season, including any play-off games.   If 30% of the season is not a complete amount of contests, the number of contests will be rounded up.  If the violation occurs during the playoff season, the athlete will be suspended for the equivalent of 30% of the regular athletic season.  If the student’s 30% suspension exceeds the number of games/contests remaining in the season or the student is not currently participating in a sport/activity, the percentage un-served will carry forward to the next sport/activity in which the student chooses to participate.  
Example 1 - If a student is suspended for 30% of a football season (a three game/contest suspension) and only serves one of those three games due to the season ending, that student would then have to serve a 20% suspension of the next sport/activity in which the student chose to participate i.e. 20% or five games/contests of the basketball season or 20% or four games/contests of the baseball season.  Example 2 - If a student is not participating in a sport/activity and commits a first incidence/infraction, the student is suspended for 30% of the next sport/activity in which the student chooses to participate.  The athlete will not be eligible for any awards or honors that are given by the school or league.
Suspension Expectations:
-The athlete will be expected to attend all practices and perform other duties as designated by the coach.  Athletes must attend all home games, and may attend away events at the coaches and Athletic Directors’ discretion.  The athlete may not wear SSHS uniform, sit on the team bench or play in any games or scrimmages.
-The athlete will complete a mandatory online drug/alcohol/tobacco education class.  Eligibility will not be granted until proof of completion is presented to the Athletic Director.  The cost of the class is the responsibility of the participant. 
-The student will resign the athletic policy in front of his/her team.  Before resigning the participant will preconference with the coach or Athletic Director and will discuss what will be done at the resigning.  This will include, but is not limited to an apology, ownership of the infraction, any lessons learned and a promise to not have another infraction.  If this is not done with sincerity and honesty the coach or Athletic Director may dismiss the participant form the team.  If the student self-reports to his/her coach, athletic director, or other school administrator, the 30% loss of participation consequence may be reduced to 15%.
-The athlete will not be eligible for any awards or honors that are given by the school or league.
 Level 2  ? Suspended for one entire sport/activity season (100%) or the equivalent of one entire season (100%), including any play-off games.  Any un-served activity suspension will carry forward (the percentage un-served) to the next sport/activity in which the student chooses to participate.
Example 1:  A student is participating and commits a second incidence/infraction.   If the season has 40% remaining, the student will lose that remainder of the current season (40%) and 60% of the next activity/season in which the student chooses to participate.
Example 2:  If a student was not participating at the time of the infraction, he/she would lose the next entire sport/activity season (100%) in which they choose to participate.  The athlete will not be eligible for any letters, awards, or other honors that are given by the school or league.  These suspensions shall be immediate from the time of the infraction.  Loss of letter and other honors shall only apply to the season in which the violation occurred.        
Level 3 ? the student will not be allowed to participate (scrimmage, play, compete) for one full contract/calendar year from the date of the 3rd incidence/infraction whether they are participating in a sport/activity or not at the time of the infraction.  
Example:  A student is participating or not participating in the spring activity season and commits their third incidence/infraction of the drug, alcohol, tobacco policy on March 10; the student will be ineligible to participate until March 10th of the subsequent year.  No lettering or other awards will be available to the athlete.  If the student agrees to enter a state approved drug, alcohol, or tobacco treatment program that may include (at the discretion of the high school) regular and on-going substance testing and successfully completes that program, the student can petition the Athletic Director and principal for a possible 50% reduction of the one contract/calendar year participation suspension.  The petition to the Athletic Director and principal can only be submitted after the student documents in writing the successful completion of the treatment program.
Additional Program Requirements and Clarifications
1.  Any athlete who violates this policy will be expected to turn themselves in.   An adult, fellow student or fellow athlete who has knowledge of the situation may also identify that a violation has occurred.  The local law enforcement agencies and officers will also work with the school to identify athletes/students who are in violation of this policy.  By signing and agreeing to this policy, parents and students give permission for law enforcement agencies to release reports included but not limited to felony, misdemeanors, and petty offenses.  Failure to cooperate in any related investigation will be an admission of guilt and treated as such.
2.  For a student to count any activity or sport as the required amount of suspension time, the student must remain actively out for the team/activity for the entire season, attending practice every day for the entire season and completing all other requirements of team members.
3.  Self-reporting for the purposes of this policy means that the student must initiate the report to coach, athletic director, principal, or other administrator prior to being questioned about their use of alcohol, drugs, or tobacco.  In other words once school personnel initiate an investigation and question the student, self-reporting and possible reduction of consequences is no longer an option for the student.
4.  The state approved substance abuse treatment program would be chosen through collaboration between parents and the principal, and would be at the expense of the student.
5. Any substance testing done as a result of this policy would be at the expense of the student.
6.Captain Clause: Captains or team leaders will be held to a higher standard in terms of this policy.  Any captain, who participates, hosts, aids in the planning or solicitation of  prohibited activities including Level A and Level 1 infractions may result in a Level 2 suspension.     
7Social Host: Any participant who hosts events where prohibited (section I) use is sanctioned will be subject to level 2 suspension.
8. Any participant who sells or distributes drugs or alcohol (section I) will be subject to Level 3 suspension.
9.  Appeals Policy:  All appeals must be initiated through the Steamboat Springs High School principal.

10.  For the purpose of this policy, the definition of Tobacco will follow the Steamboat Springs School District Policy.
IV.  TRAVEL

 All travel provided by SSHS for athletic competition will be on school vehicles.  All athletes and coaches are expected to ride to all events on school approved district vehicles.  Upon completion of an event all athletes will ride back home on school district approved transportation. 
· Overnight Trips:   All athletes will stay with their team in approved accommodations.

V.  ATTENDANCE

Being in school and completing work is critical for a student’s success.  Sometimes in order to get in the required number of competitions, students will have to miss classes.  Parents, students, and coaches are expected to adhere to the following policy:   
· Participants must be in class at least ½ of the academic day they are to practice, play or participate in. Students must travel with their team to all away events on approved school district transportation, and must adhere to the district leave time.
· Students must be in school the day following an away or home event.   
· Students must be in school on Friday or the day previous to a competition.  Unless extenuating circumstances exist, this will be expected.
·If a student has extenuating circumstances ? and knows that they will not be in school on the day of or day before an event, they may request a waiver from the athletic director before the event.
 Failure to meet any or all of the expectations set above may result in competition suspension(s).
 
VI.    UNIFORMS
 All players are expected to return uniforms clean and in good condition. If a player fails to do this, the coach is responsible for getting the uniform turned in or collecting sufficient dollars to REPLACE the uniform.  If a player fails to turn in a uniform, or the uniform is not clean or is damaged due to other than normal wear and tear, the coach, working with the athletic director will issue a fine and will hold all report cards and transcripts until this is taken care of.
 
VII.  OTHER CLUBS AND ACTIVITIES
The above policy will include Dance Showcase, Thespian, Band, Choir, Speech and Debate and will be held to this policy,  All participants in extra-curricular clubs and activities that have violations during participation at Steamboat Springs High School will be at the discretion of the Steamboat Springs High School Administration.
