Participation on a school's interscholastic athletic team is a privilege and not a right. Academics will be a priority, and student athletes are required to meet and maintain academic and behavioral standards. At any evaluation point a student athlete must not be in danger of failing any of his or her courses. Any student athlete not conforming to this academic standard shall be prohibited from participating in interscholastic competition until the school has determined that the matter has been properly addressed.
In addition, if at any evaluation point it is determined that the student athlete is demonstrating a pattern of behavior that is detrimental to their academic achievement and progress, a plan of action will be implemented to most effectively remedy the situation.
Each student athlete must also be in good standing regarding his or her school's Code of Conduct. Any student athlete not conforming to this behavioral standard shall be prohibited from participating in interscholastic competition until the school determines that the matter has been properly addressed.
Action Plan Procedure:
When it has been determined that a student athlete is in danger of failing a class OR is demonstrating a pattern of behavior detrimental to his or her academic progress, the following steps will be taken:
- A phone call will be made to a parent/guardian notifying him or her of the situation.
- Upon notification of the parent/guardian, the student athlete will be referred to the middle school team, where the process of developing a positive intervention action plan will begin.
- Elements of the action plan will include whether or not the student will be placed on academic probation regarding their athletics, as well as establishing a date to review whether or not progress has been made

September 16th: Girls Game v. Mount Everett
The girls had a tough fought loss against Mount Everett on Tuesday. The team worked hard to pass the ball but struggled to get around the strong Mount Everett Defense leaving us with no goals. Tess did an absolutely phenomenal job protecting the net saving more goals that we could count. Her positive attitude and strong leadership helped the defense stay strong through a tough first half. Lola, Lou and Becca dominated the game by keeping the pressure up to score while managing to get back and help out the defense. Ayla and Georgie had high energy throughout the entire game and were the defensive stars of the game. While SCS girls did not win, they kept their heads held high, maintained good sportsmanship and are ready to take on Canaan on Thursday at NCC.
Boys Game @ Mount Everett
Yesterday the boys battled but lost to a strong and experienced Mount Everett team. The boys found some rhythm in the first half working together and passing the ball well. Mount Everett’s defense was big and quick and stifled many of our runs forward. Omar played goalie for most of the game and saved 9 shots and Tanner finished the game in goal with 5 saves. Strong performances were given on defense by Kobe, Pierce, and Kevin. Sam, Jacob, Fritz, and Mason all worked extremely hard and well together in the midfield. Next game is Thursday at North Canaan.
