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 27: The girls entered their second game of the season with a lot of energy leading them to a victory against Kent. While they ended the first half with a tie 0-0 score, they came into the second half of the game enthusiastic and ready to win. Kaitlyn put the first goal in the back of the net, followed by a goal from Molly. Kent was able to break past our strong defense and score a goal with 15 minutes left in the half. Molly was able to score another goal followed by Hannah scoring our final goal of the game. We finished the game with a strong score of 4-1. Mia and Caroline both worked diligently to protect our goal. Mia was the spark of the second half bringing new energy to the offense. Olivia dominated the defense with her strong kick. Catherine was able to improve her skills in the second half with control over the ball. Leighton gets the hustle award for her tireless effort and smart playing throughout the game. Our next game is away at North Canaan on Monday October 1st.
On Thursday the boys traveled to Kent and faced a well-matched team. Kent scored with a corner kick in the first minute of the game. This fired up the defense. Jerome, Caiden, Gabriel, and DJ led the impenetrable defense and kept Kent from scoring for the next 75 minutes. During this time, goal keepers Graham and Zach dazzled the crowd with 14 saves. In the meantime, Salisbury’s offense made smart plays and created opportunities to score. Salisbury’s first goal came when Oscar sent a clean pass upfield to Ryan who buried it in the back of the net. Ryan also recorded an assist with a pass to Davonte who found an opening and finessed the ball into the goal. For most of the second half the score remained Salisbury 2, Kent 1. Then, in the final minutes of the game Kent took advantage of a loose ball and tied the score. The game ended in a 2-2 tie. Good playing, boys!
September 24: The girls soccer team opened their season with a tough fought loss against Canaan yesterday. Canaan got on the board first, but Kaitlyn tied it up with a touch past the Canaan goalie. Shortly after, Canaan scored again, but Molly put it in the back of the net to tie it up 2-2. Unfortunately, Canaan scored two more goals in the second half to make the final score 4-2. The Redhawks possessed the ball for most of the game, but they had a hard time getting past Canaan’s strong line of defense. Zoe gets the hustle award for giving 110% the entire game. Olivia was the defensive star with many clears that kept Canaan away from our goal. Mia and Hannah worked hard to protect Salisbury’s goal. The girls host Kent at Trotta field on Thursday.
The boys team started off their season with a dominating win over North Canaan. From the sound of the whistle, the boys came out like a “ferrari in a small town,” as Mr. Reilly put it. Caleb and Ryan both scored and assisted each other in the first 5 minutes of the game. Ryan also gave another cross that bounced in the box and found Andrej at the back post for another goal. The first half also saw goals from Graham and a second one from Ryan. The second half began and the boys didn’t let off the gas with their intensity and hustle. Oscar and Davonte both netted goals through their determination and aggressiveness. The Salisbury defense was headlined by Zach and Graham in goal saving a combined 10 shots. The score finished 7-0. Mr. Janco and Mr. Reilly were so impressed and proud of how together the team played and communicated with one another. Next game is at home at school field against Kent!
