TRYOUT DATES and PRACTICE SCHEDULES

CLOSED TRYOUTS and PRACTICES

For the sake of our athletes, coaches, and teams, Page Middle School tryouts and practices are closed to the public during practice time. Please refrain from entering the practice area until practice is completed, and players are leaving the field/court. If you need to communicate with your athlete's coach(es), please contact them using the links near the top of the page. Family members and spectators are NOT allowed to enter the playing arena (field/court) without specific, expressed verbal/written permission from administration.

DUAL TEAM PARTICIPATION DURING THE SEASON 

in the MAMSAA League


Dual participation

Players playing on the school teams may participate in up to TWO (2) events (either single game or weekend tournament) during the school season, so long as they don’t interfere with the school game or practice schedule.

EX: Chris can play in a weekend tournament on 3/7 - 3/9 (counts as one event) and then a single game on a Wednesday 3/26 (counts one event), but that’s it.


Players may practice with another team (i.e. travel, city/rec, etc.) but their school season/practices/games should take priority.

EX: If Sal has a travel baseball practice from 4 - 6:30 pm, but has school practice from 3:15 - 5 pm, they should honor the school team practice until it lets out at 5, and can then go join their travel practice immediately after, if they want. 

ATHLETES and FAMILIES: Please understand that some teams may involve cuts, which are at the discretion of the coach. John Page Middle School Coaches are entrusted to make the (justified) decisions they feel are in the best interest of the team.

"Making the Team"


SAFETY of all of our athletes, coaches, and participants, is always our most paramount priority. 

In that vein, we follow and enforce all safety rules and guidelines established by the MHSAA and the Lamphere Schools. This includes (but is not limited to) proper wearing of the necessary equipment, uniforms, rules of the game, facility procedures and safeguards, etc.


** PLEASE KNOW that in order for ANY student to participate for any team, equipment from previous sports must be returned/school fines paid up. Students must also have an active physical uploaded into PRIVIT and their PRIVIT profile must be complete with the STUDENT'S information (see below).

AFTER PRACTICE/GAME EVENT PICK-UP

Athletes and families,

We thank you for all of your support in all of the sports your athlete participates in. We ask though, to be please be mindful of the end time for practice/games, and arrange to have your athletes picked up immediately following these events. Our coaches have other educational, professional, and family obligations immediately after practice/game events that they need to tend to and should not be expected to wait around for more than a reasonable (and brief) grace period following these posted times. If you need to know what time practice ends, please contact your coach and verify the proper pick up time (or click on the practice links provided above). If pick up becomes a challenge, we suggest sharing rides or working out some sort of carpool ​system.


We thank you for your support and cooperation, and are grateful for all the good that you do :-) 

LOCKING UP YOUR MATERIALS

Athletes and families,

We want to remind all of our athletes to be diligent about locking up their materials during practices, games, and other events, when they are not in direct possession of their items. The school/coaches can provide locks if you need one, or you may use one of your choosing, but it is strongly encouraged that materials are kept in a locker and locked up. It's also important that athletes are mindful, attentive, respectful, and responsible when dealing with any materials- theirs, or those belonging to others. 


We thank you for your support and cooperation, and are grateful for all the good that you do :-) 

FOR ATHLETES with LATER PRACTICE TIMES

For any team, where practice does NOT start immediately after school (i.e. practice starts at 3:45 or later), those athletes will need to either sign up for, and attend AFTER SCHOOL RESOURCE or leave the building and come back in time for the start of practice. Athletes cannot "hang around" unattended without a willing, available, and approved coach or staff member.

DURING TIMES of INCLEMENT WEATHER

Generally speaking, if school is cancelled, due to unsafe weather conditions, or any other reason, athletic practices, games and/or events will also be cancelled for that day(s). If an athletic event is cancelled during a day when school is in session, the appropriate staff will make all necessary efforts to notify the athletes and their families/contacts as soon as possible (so check your email if in doubt).

Academic Policy and Code of Conduct

We see the Five C's

At John Page Middle School, Character and Class is expected in the Classroom, in Competition, and in the Community. Your talents should extend beyond the playing field or arena, and all athletes should strive to conduct the most positive representation of themselves in all three “C” areas mentioned above. 


Our school policy on academic eligibility states that student athletes must pass FIVE (of their six) classes in order to be eligible for weekly game day participation. Student-athletes that fall below the academic threshold will be able to practice, but cannot participate in official games/meets/events until they are once again passing FIVE (5) or more classes.


Please also understand that while we want to continue to teach these student athletes the values of responsibility and accountability, athletics offer them so many valuable benefits, including (but not limited to): health, time management, conflict resolution, perseverance, managing success and overcoming adversity, healthy competition, increased social skills and self-esteem, etc. 


We want to work with our student athletes to help them have every opportunity to play the sport they are passionate about, but with privilege comes responsibility. Page student athletes are expected to maintain positive character traits in and out of the class. 


Page Middle School Athletic Code of Conduct

John Page Middle School Athletics Attendance/Suspension Policy


To participate in practices and games

All student-athletes and team members are required to attend at least FOUR (4) of their six classes for the day, unless for a medical, personal, or family emergency that has been reported to the Main office and the coach(es). Any unexcused or unreported absence from practice may result in a change in playing time and responsibility.


Suspensions

If any student-athlete or team member is suspended from school (ISS or OSS), they are not permitted to be at any practice or game that same day(s) of suspension. Once the suspension is over and the student student-athlete or team member returns to school, they may rejoin the team activities, per the approval of the coach (which may also involve administrative intervention).


Please understand that a coach reserves the right to temporarily suspend (or permanently dismiss) any student-athlete or team member from team activities or game action, if said  student-athlete or team member repeatedly (or egregiously) acts against team policies or is deemed to be overall detrimental to the team culture.


Please also understand that any in-school violation of the code of conduct (as spelled out in the student handbook) may affect the eligibility and roles and responsibilities of the student-athlete or team member, as judiciously determined by the coach (which may also involve administrative intervention).



Expectation for Students Attending After-School Sporting & Extracurricular Events 

Dear Page Middle School Families,

We hope this letter finds you well. In an effort to continuously improve the experiences we offer our school community, we would like to bring to your attention an important update regarding students attending after-school sporting and extracurricular events, like robotics competitions and theater performances.

We continue to be committed to providing a secure environment for all students, and as such, we have reviewed our safety protocols and will be implementing a new expectation for students who attend after-school sporting and extracurricular events. Starting immediately, all middle school students attending after-school sporting or extracurricular events must be accompanied by an adult for the duration of the event. This practice has been in place at Lamphere High School so we are aiming for consistency, and it is a common practice across most middle schools in the area.

This decision has been made with the safety and well-being of our students in mind. While our school staff and event organizers are dedicated to creating a positive and enriching experience for all participants, we believe that having an adult present will be beneficial for supervision reasons and will create a safer, more enjoyable experience for all spectators and guests.

All students will have received information about this new expectation, and has been planned purposefully so that everyone has a common understanding moving forward.

We realize that this change may require some adjustments for families, and we appreciate your cooperation with this matter. Please feel free to reach out to the school administration if you have any questions or concerns about this new expectation. We value your partnership in creating a safe and positive environment for all of our students.

Your partners in education,

Brad Sassack, Principal

Jen Creamer, Assistant Principal

Tim Chapman, Athletic Director

Sportsmanship for all at our Sporting Events

In the Lamphere School District, we take a lot of pride in our athletic teams- the athletes, the coaches, and all who help to get our athletes ready for competition on the field/court, and in life. We also take a lot of pride in our community and the positive image we want to proudly present to our surrounding communities.

 

We want to remind all family members, friends, and otherwise supporters of our athletic teams that while we strive for success and want to foster healthy competitive drive in our athletes, our coaches are also focusing on the development of these players, and want to provide the best athletically educational opportunity for them.


We at Lamphere want to be known for supporting our team, rather than criticizing or harassing the opposition, the officials, or any of our own. We want our fans to elevate, rather than agitate. We must acknowledge that all of us are human, and mistakes and errors can (and will) happen, but taking the positive approach is what will set us apart and elevate us. More importantly, it will set a positive tone for our young people to follow. 


We invite our community to be supportive spectators and fans of our teams and coaches. Please trust the coaches to coach, and trust the student-athletes to play.  Spectators should refrain from any confrontational interaction with coaches or players until the day after the contest, and the appropriate time and setting has been established. Family members and spectators are NOT allowed to enter the playing arena (field/court) without specific, expressed verbal/written permission from administration.


Again, we firmly believe in being a positive, supportive, understanding, and tolerant community, and we thank all of you for doing your part. Thank you for accepting the responsibility of being beneficial role models for our young athletes, and making us delighted to be part of this great Lamphere community.
