Due to the large number of athletes participating in cross country, attendance at practice is mandatory in an effort to provide a fair opportunity for the student athletes.  If your son/daughter is unable to attend practice, it is their responsibility to let the coach know. Practice missed the day before a game will possibly result in your child not participating in that meet. Parents can send in a written note or send an email to Mr. Fox at cfox@gbtps.org or cyanes@gbtps.org. The following attendance rules will be enforced:

  1. 2 unexcused absences = miss 1 meet
  2. 3 unexcused absences = miss 2 meets
  3. 4 unexcused absences = removal from the team

*Unexcused absence is being present in school and missing practice without notifying the coach.  Receiving a lunch or after school detention will also count as an unexcused absence.

  • All practices will end at 4:15.  Please make sure the proper arrangements are made to pick up your child promptly.
  • To participate in an away soccer game, all students must ride the bus with the team to the game.  Students who will not be traveling home on the bus after a game must provide an email/written note from a parent/guardian signed and dated.
  • Administration/teacher detention will take precedence over practices and games.
  • Students are encouraged to go for extra help in their academic classes and maintain a C average as per Board Policy.
