Multiple Participation Guidelines
Despite all efforts by the administration, scheduling conflicts will develop for students involved in multiple activities, curricular and extracurricular. When conflicts occur in scheduling school-related activities, these guidelines apply:
- Conflict between two scheduled activities: the student’s first duty is to notify both coaches/sponsors as early as possible. The coaches/sponsors will attempt to resolve the conflict to best allow the student to participate in as many activities as possible. The student will then be advised of the recommendation or propose an equally acceptable alternative.
- Conflict between a competition/performance and a scheduled practice: students will be expected to attend the competition/performance without loss of group membership or standing in the other activity.
- Conflict between scheduled practices: the student will be expected to participate in one without loss of group membership in the other activity. Frequently missing practice sessions may jeopardize that, and the expectation is that the student attends both activities equally.
- Conflict between competitions/performance: students may participate in one activity without loss of group membership or standing in the other activity.
Note: There may be times when students may participate in one activity and part of another by arrangement with the coaches/sponsors.
