Expectations of Athletes

All students (and a parent) must complete an online concussion course before they are allowed to participate in Pike sports. All members of Pike sports teams are expected to make a commitment to their team and participate in the scheduled games and practices. Only one absence per week is permissible unless it is due to illness.

All members of Pike sports teams must notify their coach in advance if they need to miss a game or practice. If an athlete is absent and did not tell the coach, a phone call will be made home to make sure the parent knows that their son or daughter is not at a game or practice. This is to ensure the safety of the athlete.

Coaches will distribute uniforms once team rosters have been made. No students are allowed to take uniforms out of the storage boxes. It is the athlete’s responsibility to bring their uniform to every game. Uniforms may only be worn for Pike games, not PE class, practice, or any time outside of school. Uniforms must be returned promptly at the end of the season. If a uniform is lost, the athlete must pay for the cost of a replacement uniform.

Students must attend school for the majority of the school day in order to play in a game or participate in practice. Students should keep this in mind when scheduling appointments.

All Pike School athletes are expected to maintain good sportsmanship at all times. Opposing team players and officials must be treated with respect. It is important to represent Pike in a positive manner.

We are excited to get to know you as an athlete! If you have any questions please feel free to contact Rob Smith, Director of Athletics, at  athletics@pikeschool.org.
