Student Athlete Team Membership Expectations

As a student-athlete member of any team, representing yourself, your team, your program and your school is important. Demonstrating the ability to make good choices throughout the day 


From the activities handbook:

"However, once students make a commitment to participate in an activity, the right becomes a privilege.  When the students are granted this privilege,  they accept the responsibility of following behavior guidelines outlined in policies and rules established for administration of co-curricular and extracurricular programs. Because the participants represent Prairie in co-curricular and extracurricular activities, they are expected to even more stringent and demanding behavior codes than non-participating students”


  • It is district athletic policy that the athlete be in attendance for the ENTIRE school day in order to participate in both practices and meets

    • Excused absences for Dr appts (with note), participation in school activities or prior approval from administration for other partial day absences is expected

  • Absences from practice should be communicated in writing/email with your coach, preferably before the absence occurs. (i.e. appointments, other school conflicts).
