Managers must be registered and have a current physical on file in order to manage any team. They do not have to pay to participate but they must come in to the Activities Office and register with Joe or Kelsey.
Coaches will receive a list of eligible students from Joe
on or before the first day of practice. If a student is not on the list that Joe has emailed the student is not eligible to participate until their name has been added to the list by Joe. Examples as to why a student isn't on the eligibility list could be: expired physical, transfer, violations and academic probation. Contact Joe
with any questions.
After tryouts and teams are made, coaches are responsible for sending Joe
all final team roster breakdowns and cuts. As soon as rosters are sent, Joe will send a final roster to confirm one final time with coaches.
