From the desk of Coach DeStigter...
I was never a Major League Baseball player, but I'm asked many times by parents about their son or daughter "focusing" on one sport. In my humble opinion, just about every major athlete in any sport played more than one. Athletics is more than just winning or losing, but a chance for kids to have an outlet and enjoy whatever they are doing at the time. I found this article to be very interesting and it makes some very good points as to why it's important for athletes of any age to participate in more than one athletic activity. The key is to know YOUR child and what makes athletics fun or a job. They will have plenty of time for that in the real world after graduation.
EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES and ELIGIBILITY
The middle school activities program is an opportunity for student development in such areas as leadership, citizenship and character, as well as special abilities that may be of value vocationally. In addition, much pleasure is derived from actual participation.
There is a place for every student in these activities, and each may participate according to his or her interests. At all activities, any student not adhering to the teacher’s direction will not only be barred from extracurricular activities but may be suspended from school.
At the end of each mid-term and each quarter, a middle school student must be passing in four academic subjects (math, science, social studies, language arts, and reading) to be eligible for the middle school’s extracurricular activities. Otherwise, that person is ineligible to participate.
· The student will remain ineligible for 2 weeks; then another grade survey is taken.
· During the period of ineligibility, the student shall not participate in games or practices.
· Regarding band or vocal music: the student will continue with private lessons.
