Information for Athletes

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 8:15 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.

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.
