Prior to the beginning of practice, parents will receive a packet of forms which must be completed before the student will be allowed to participate. These forms include an athletic team permission to participate form, a medical condition notification, and insurance confirmations for volunteer drivers.
There is a $125 fee, which must be paid prior to the first practice, for each sport in which the student participates. There is a $50 fee for Cross Country, and a $25 fee for each one-day tournament.
Uniforms will be provided for the duration of each season. It is the student’s responsibility to keep the uniform clean and in good condition.
games and practices
Practice and game schedules will be issued at the beginning of each season. Game schedules are subject to change; players and their parents will be notified of any changes. We are always looking for drivers to transport students to our away games; please contact the athletic directors to volunteer.
parent and player conduct
Everyone involved with Sea Crest School and its Athletic Program is expected to conduct himself according to the school’s Guiding Principles, and this year all student athletes, their parents, and coaches will be required to read and sign a code of conduct. Because a failure to act in the spirit of true sportsmanship will result in the individual’s removal from the program, it is vital that parents read and discuss the code of conduct before signing.
