Blue Jays News · Jackson-Milton Athletic Handbook Updated (2.28.19)


Athletic Handbook Update Feb 28

At times throughout the year the athletic department reflects on all of our policies and  how we can best serve our student-athletes.  Two changes have been made to the Jackson-Milton Athletic Handbook and will go into affect immediately (2.28.19.)  These are not new rules or policies but rather clarifications on a local and OHSAA rule.

ATTENDANCE AT SCHOOL FOR GAMES AND PRACTICES:

A student must be in school at least one-half of the school day in order to participate in practice or games after school. If a game or contest is to be played on Saturday or during a holiday break, the student/athlete must be present at least one-half of the last school day that week in order to participate. Vacations are not considered an excused absence.

An athlete should always consult with his/her coach before missing practice; good communication avoids problems and disagreements.

AAU, JO Volleyball, Soccer Summer Baseball and Softball, Non-Interscholastic Competition

According to OHSAA regulations, student-athletes are not permitted to attend a tryout, attend a practice or game for any other non-interscholastic team until their season is over. The two ways that a season is considered officially over would be elimination from OHSAA state tournament or release by the head coach. All non-interscholastic teams must follow a 50% rule that limits the number of players from the same school on their team. An athlete should always consult with his/her coach; good communication avoids problems and disagreements.

Any questions please feel free to ask!
