Southeastern Stokes Middle School Sports

  • Coach Responsibility

    • # 1 Responsibility: Keep our athletes SAFE. On the field, court, tennis courts, etc.

    • # 2 Responsibility: Help our student-athletes grow as people (values of teamwork, unselfishness, handling adversity, etc.

    • # 3 Responsibility: Help our student-athletes get better every day. The first game you watch will NOT be the finished product. The last game may not be, but our coaches will help players get better each day.

  • Parent Responsibility

    • Be a positive example for all of our student-athletes- our primary responsibility is to demonstrate to our kids how to handle adversity (lack of playing time / being challenged by coaches / POOR OFFICIATING).

    • Remember that our coaches COACH because they love kids. Our coaches often choose to spend time away from their own kids in order to spend time with yours and make your kids’ lives better… How powerful is that? That demands respect… even when coaches make decisions with which you disagree.

    • Every time a parent demeans a coach in front of their son or daughter, they teach that son or daughter a lesson. What are the lessons we are teaching our kids with our own behavior? Just a thought.

    • Be sure to take a 24-hour cooling-off period if there’s a problem with a coach unless it is an issue of immediate physical safety… but we absolutely WILL listen to your concerns and address those in the proper manner.

    • Refereeing…. Let’s do the best we can. Most of them are doing the best that they can.

  • Student Responsibility

    • Don’t embarrass your family. Don’t embarrass your teammates. Don’t embarrass your school.

    • Respect authority.

  • Parents need to do the following before they leave:

    • Stokes County Schools Middle School handbook can be found online at (printed versions are available for any parent upon request).

    • Complete Emergency Sports Medicine Record (must complete one for each season in which student-athletes participate).

    • Complete Private Transportation form (must complete one for each season in which student-athletes participate).

    • Complete Concussion form (one time per year).

    • Complete Stokes County Middle Schools Athletic Participation Requirements (front and back and this is only one time per year).

    • Meet with coaches briefly for sport-specific meeting.

  • Remind 101 Form

    • Pick up forms. This is our best tool for getting information out quickly. Take as many as you need for each of your cell phone devices.

    • We would prefer you to sign up this evening if at all possible.

  • Athletes will be picked up at the following areas after practice:

    • Front of SSMS by flagpole: volleyball, soccer, cross country, girls tennis and cheerleading.

    • Behind SSMS by big gym: football ONLY.

  • Parents CANNOT drive behind the school to pick their children up. Too many students, safety hazard, parents speeding through parking lot… all NOT good. Please help us keep our student/athletes safe.

  • Fall sports pictures will take place here at SSMS on Wednesday, September 25th. Student/athletes will receive picture forms tonight.
