AHS Updates Athletic Policies
by Doug Robinson
Alvirne High School, in partnership with school administrators, parents, and athletes, has proposed an updated athletic policy for all Alvirne athletes. The present policy has been in effect for more than two decades and is in need of updating. The ongoing forums have been designed to provide an ongoing dialogue in an effort to increase communication and to establish direct dialogue between policy creators and the athletes. “The purpose of these policies is to guide, direct, and to establish protocols for an athlete’s behavior, as well as the duties and responsibilities for the coaches, parents, and school administrators,” commented District Athletic Director Karen Bonney during the parent meeting at AHS. “We are an education facility first. Athletics is an extension of that education,” she said. The policies written stated that the Alvirne Athletic Department
“encourages participation in a wide variety of offerings, requires students to meet reasonable standards, emphasizes that respect for human differences and for the diversity of people must be at the center of the athletic experience, evaluates our athletic, professional, and personal progress regularly, and fosters moral awareness and civic participation.” AHS offers 23 varsity sports and junior varsity sports, as well as four sport activities for freshman exclusively. “Gender equality is a major criterion in providing a healthy balance to your athletic program. Currently, we offer nine sports for boys only, nine offerings for girls only, and five offerings which are open to boys and girls.” As in the previous policy, health insurance is required, should a student wish to participate in a sporting event. Should a family realize a financial or health hardship, school administrators work with various organizations in an effort to provide any student who wishes to play the ability to play. Physical exams are required of all athletes during their freshman and junior years as well. Those in attendance questioned the “movement between levels”
policy, whereby junior varsity players also play on a varsity team. Parents believed that coaches were sending the incorrect messages to an athlete and to that student’s priority and needed commitment. Bonney stated that communication between the coaches, parents, and athlete would need to be reviewed and improved in an effort set the priorities of that athlete. Students will also be required to “have an overall average of C- (1.7
GPA) or better in the marking period immediately preceding the start of a listed activity,” should they wish to participate in a sport. “No student who has failed to pass in four units of work during the previous quarter shall represent the school in any interscholastic contest,” states the new policy. New policies also communicate expectations with regards to an athlete’s required commitment as well as a families’ obligation to that sport, should the family decide to take a vacation. Parents, coaches, and school administrators wrestled with the punishment of an athlete, should that athlete be caught using alcohol during the summer or during a time when an athlete was not involved in their specific sport. Parents agreed that school administrators were not able to police the use of alcohol by students and administrators communicated that they were not “looking” for those who drink. All agreed to the need to establish a zero-tolerance for the use of alcohol by athletes, stating that they needed to be “role models” for other AHS students. The consensus built between parents and administrators stated that should an athlete be caught drinking, then that student would forfeit his privilege from playing in a sport for 90 days (first offense) and 180 days (second offense). The school year is 180 days. Should a student-athlete “actively participate in counseling sessions regarding their use of illegal substances (and) provide documentation from a physician or therapist of the evaluation and active participation, prospective athletes will have earned the opportunity to have their suspension time reviewed for the purpose of returning to their sport of choice sooner.” “Interscholastic athletics is a completely voluntary program,” states the AHS policy. “No student is obligated to take part in any interscholastic activity and certainly not in interscholastic athletics. Participation is not required for graduation, nor must the student have athletic credits for college entrance. Those who participate must give extra effort and extra time.” The entire text of the new AHS Athletic Policy may be reviewed at www. sau81.org/files/New%20Draft%20Athletic%20Policies%202010%202011
. pdf. All parents, athletes, and coaches are invited to review and submit their thoughts directly to Hudson School Superintendent Randy Bell. The intent of the Policy Committee is to have the new athletic policies in place by mid-May.
