All athletes must have a current physical and concussion information form turned in prior to participating in any official team practices.
If an athlete has a concussion, he/she will not be able to play until the athlete has been clearer for participation by a physician and has completed a gradual return to play under the supervision of the physician and the Greenfield Athletic Trainer.
Greenfield School has a no–cut policy in athletics and believes that every child should be afforded the opportunity to participate in the athletic program.
Greenfield School fields teams for boys in soccer, cross country, basketball, tennis, baseball, golf and swimming. Teams in soccer, cross country, basketball, tennis, golf, volleyball and swimming are available for girls. Junior varsity sports will emphasize skill development and participation. Teams and students who qualify are eligible to participate in the statewide tournaments sponsored by the NCISAA.
NOTE: For competitive sports participation, a student must not be on academic probation. On days of athletic contests, a student representing Greenfield School on any team must be in attendance by 8:30 am in order to participate in the athletic contest. A student is able to play if they have a note from the doctor. If a student’s appointment is during the school day, they should be in school until it is time to leave for his/her appointment. The student must check out appropriately in the office when it is time to leave for their doctor’s appointment.
Athletes are representatives of Greenfield School and are expected to dress appropriately on game days and when traveling to and from all athletic contests, both home and away. Athletes must appear neat and clean at all times. Appropriate dress for a boy includes a dress shirt (tucked in) with tie (no logo showing from the T-shirt), dress pants (no shorts or jeans), dress socks, and dress shoes (no tennis shoes). Appropriate dress for a girl includes a dress or dress slacks with sweater or blouse (no shorts, jeans, or denim skirts), and dress shoes (no tennis shoes). Hats are not appropriate for boys or girls. In special situations a coach may request his team to wear team apparel during the school day or uniforms directly to and/or from a game. In this case players are expected to be neatly dressed in uniform both to and/or from the game. Appropriate dress is expected to be in accordance with the standards set by the school. Failure to adhere to these standards will result in letting your teammates down and not being able to play. A coach may require a standard of dress that exceeds the standard set by the school.
All NCISAA rules for suspension and ejection will apply. The coaching staff may take further disciplinary action. Reinstatement must be in accordance with team rules.
Practice will not be allowed if the heat index is over 100 degrees.
If an athlete has a concussion, he/she will not be able to play until the coach has a note from the doctor saying he/she is cleared to play sports again.
All athletes must ride to athletic events with their team. With the coach’s permission on return trips, a player may ride with his own parents or with another parent, if a note, email, or phone call is given to the coach in advance.
