Board of education and school policies exist regarding the transportation of team members to and from away meets.
All team members must ride on the school bus to and from the away meet venue. Team members possessing their own car and driver’s license are not permitted to drive themselves to or from the away meet venue, regardless of their age or any other factor.
Team members are expected to stay for the duration of the meet to support their teammates.
We realize that on occasion, a situation may arise in which, with valid reason, a team member needs to come late to a meet or needs to leave early. In such situations, the parent or guardian of the team member must receive approval in advance from the athletic director. The coaches do not have the authority to grant approval.
In order to gain such approval, a parent or guardian must complete an online form, which can be found at:
We can only release a team member to the custody of a parent or legal guardian. We cannot release a team member to a boyfriend/girlfriend, an older sibling, a neighbor, etc.
If a parent or legal guardian is picking the team member up from the meet, that person must enter the meet venue to pick the team member up or otherwise have a coach witness that the team member was actually picked up by a parent or legal guardian.
We cannot release a team member if it has not been approved by the athletic director.
The school bus cannot drop athletes at their houses after the meet. Transportation will be provided back to the high school.
The primary motivation for the existence of this process is for insurance and liability purposes. Please be advised that if you are transporting a team member to or from an away meet venue, you are releasing the coaching staff, the athletic department, the high school administration, the school district, and the board of education from any and all liability.
We thank you in advance and appreciate your understanding and cooperation in this matter.
