This is a general summary of some of the rules which most often affect high school athletes. A more detailed account of IHSAA rules is attached at the b ottom of the athlete’s physical form. Illness and Injury The athlete must present written verification from a physician stating that he/she is physically fit to participate after being absent five or more consecutive days. One Sport per Season In general, an athlete is allowed to participate in ONLY ONE sport during a season. Exceptions require approval of both coaches involved and the Athletic Director. Participation, Practice & Games The athlete must not participate as a member of any similar team, during the same season; or in an IHSAA sponsored sport not under the direct supervision of their school. Physicals A completed IHSAA physical form (“Release and Consent Form”) must be on file at the high school before the athlete begins conditioning for his or her intended sport. Quitting a Team Once an athlete begins practice in a sport and his/her team membership is terminated by either the athlete, or the coach, for a reason other than being “cut” due to lack of ability - he/she is ineligible to practice or participate in another sport during that season. This may be appealed to the Athletic Director. An exception will require mutual consent of both coaches involved and the Athletic Director. Any athlete who quits a team may not try out for a sport of the next season until the team he/she quits finishes their respective season. This restriction includes pre-season conditioning as well. Unsportsmanlike Conduct If an athlete is ejected or disqualified from a contest for any unsportsmanlike conduct there will be a conference with the Athletic Director, head coach, and athlete involved on the next school day. Each case will be handled on its own merits with no precedent for discipline being set by any case. Undue Influence The athlete must not have transferred from one school to another for athletic purposes as a result of undue influence, or persuasion by any person or group. Section 3: Types of Athletic Awards Varsity Letters A chenille varsity letter will be awarded to any athlete fulfilling a varsity letter requirement. Only one letter will be given during the four years. Any replacements must be purchased through the Athletic Department at the athlete’s expense.

Numerals Chenille numerals indicating the year the athlete will graduate will be given to all freshmen athletes who satisfactorily complete a sport. This award will only be given during the student’s freshman year. Only freshmen are eligible for this award. Sport Emblem An emblem symbolizing the sport for which the athlete fulfilled a varsity letter requirement will be given once in each varsity sport. Any replacements must be purchased through the Athletic Department at the athlete’s expense.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
