In as much as the administration, teachers, and coaching staff at Healdsburg Jr. High will be assuming supervisory responsibilities of your student on trips away from school, as well as at events on campus, we feel it is important that students and parents fully understand the rules that govern such trips and events. Parent drivers need to submit a completed HUSD Voluntary Driver Insurance Authorization Form, photo copy of the driver’s California Driver’s License and current auto insurance. There will be a parent meeting after tryouts to go over the season details with the coach. The coach will give further information about the date and time for this meeting.
Athlete Code of Ethics:
Participation in interscholastic athletics is a privilege and an honor. Student athletes are expected to be positive representatives of Healdsburg Jr. High, Healdsburg Unified School District, and the community at large. The student athlete will exhibit positive/appropriate behavior at school, during athletic contests, and in the community. The privilege of participation may be revoked when a student athlete fails or refuses to comply with the rules.
Being an athlete can aid in the development of lifelong skills necessary for our students to succeed: sportsmanship, cooperation, teamwork, respect of others, and adjusting to winning and losing in a positive manner. Athletics also play an important role in helping participants develop positive self-concepts and healthy bodies.
While Healdsburg Jr. High takes great pride in being successful, we do not condone, “winning at all costs”, and discourage any behavior that sacrifices good sportsmanship, respect for team members and opponents, and disregard for the rules. Because our emphasis is on teaching the skills necessary to play the sport, it is expected that all members of our athletic teams be given the opportunity to participate in all practices and games.
It is our goal to realize the potential of all members of a team. Coaches will not allow members of a team to tease or belittle their teammates.
