I. INTRODUCTION A. To the Parent This publication is presented to you because your child has indicated a desire to participate in interscholastic athletics, co-curricular, and extra-circular activities and you have expressed your willingness to permit them to participate. By supporting policies and regulations that govern school competition, events, and the conduct and training of students participating in activities, parents, team or group members and coaches, directors, or sponsors can maintain a program with positive opportunities and experiences which foster the personal growth of all members. High school athletic and activities are an extension of a student’s academic day. Education-based school activities provide an opportunity to learn valuable lessons that cannot be obtained in a classroom setting alone. A small percentage of high school athletes go on to play college sports. An outstanding education can help a student become successful in life. The student athlete should make attending classes every day, being prepared and earning satisfactory grades priority. Loudoun County Public Schools believes that student activity programs help meet students’ need for self- expression, mental alertness, and physical growth. Our obligation is to maintain a sound program to further students’ emotional and physical maturity. The staff is committed to provide adequate equipment and facilities, well-trained coaches, directors, sponsors and fair contests with skilled officials or judges.

We appreciate your collaborative and cooperative efforts with members of the school staff. ************************************************************************** Freshman and Junior Varsity athletics in Loudoun County provide the opportunity for a healthy and desirable attitude towards athletic participation.
