Columbine Middle School Athletics

Philosophy:
We believe Middle School Sports provide the opportunity for athletes to develop lifelong skills including responsibility, work ethic, sportsmanship as well as strong fundamental skills and knowledge about the sport they are playing.  Participation and sportsmanship is one of the main areas of focus here at Columbine.  All athletes will be expected to demonstrate responsible behavior and good sportsmanship not only during athletic activities but before, during and after school as well. 

Concussion Management Information/IMPACT testing: All 6th, 7th and 8th grade athlete who have not taken the impact test will be given the computerized test on the first Wednesday of the season to determine their baseline.  If an athlete were to suffer a head injury or concussion during the season the test will be retaken and the results will be given to the athlete’s family physician for evaluation. It is the policy of the Montrose County School District that players suffering head injuries or concussions may not participate in practice or games until there is written release from a physician.               

Sports Physical/Fees/Training Code: All athletes must have a current physical and athletic paperwork completed and on file before they can participate in a sport. This includes all athletic fees. Please call or stop by the main office or check with the head coaches to make sure all forms have been filled out and fees paid.

Eligibility: Teachers will post grades by noon each Monday.  Coaches will receive an eligibility list every Monday before practice time.  Students receiving one or more “F” in any class will be ineligible to participate in all competition that week. (Monday – Saturday) We strongly encourage all student athletes to continually communicate directly with their classroom teachers about all grades they receive.

Wednesday Study Hall: All players having a “D” or an “F” on the eligibility report will be required to attend study hall after early release on Wednesday’s.  Athletes will report to a designated classroom no later than 2:45 and remain there until 3:50. Athletes are encouraged to bring all school work and personal belongings to study hall, they will not be allowed to return to their lockers or leave the campus without parent permission.
