A MESSAGE FROM THE ATHLETIC DEPARTMENTS
On behalf of the Cherry Hill Schools athletic staff and family, we would like to welcome you to the other half of education- ATHLETICS!
We consider athletics to be an essential and dynamic aspect of the overall education process. Participation in athletics is a PRIVILEGE that all students have. Each athlete will be expected to accept training rules and regulations that are specific for each sport. Student-Athletes are to conduct themselves as ladies and gentlemen at all times. Their actions are not only reflective of their coaches at school, but of their parents and guardians as well.
We are a member the New Jersey Interscholastic Athletic Association. As part of the NJSIAA requirements, stan athlete becomes ineligible for high school athletics if s/he attains the age of 19 prior to September 1.
thAs an incoming athlete from the 8 grade, there are no credit requirements for the fall and winter seasons. However, to be eligible for the spring season, a student must be passing at least 13.75 credits for the first semester(mid year average).
Students in grades 10, 11, and 12 are eligible for athletic participation during the fall and winter seasons if they passed 27.5 credits during the preceding academic year. To be eligible for the spring season, a ststudent must be passing 13.75 credits at the conclusion of the 1 semester.

by the athlete. Failure to do so will effect participation in further activities.
CHERRY HILL TEAM PLEDGE:
Conflicts relating to commitment are inevitable when expectations are unreasonable. These expectations can be quite diverse and push and put young people in different directions. These diverse goals can usurp the fundamental purpose of sport and can result in a devaluing of the athletic experience.
Cooperation among coaches, athletes, parents, and school personnel is essential if students are to realize the values of athletic participation.
As an athlete and/or parent, I promise:
？ To attend my (child’s) team orientation and informational meeting.
？ To work closely with all school personnel to assure an appropriate academic and athletic
experience (for my child).
？ To assure that I (my child) will attend all scheduled practices and athletic contests. Athletes
must attend ALL practices. Extenuating circumstances may arise – coaches will determine if
that circumstance is valid.
？ To (require my child to) abide by the team training rules.
？ To acknowledge the ultimate authority of the coach to determine strategies and player
？ To promote sportsmanship and mature behavior from students and parents during athletic
？ To work cooperatively with other school personnel to assure a wholesome and successful

POLICY IBC: PHILOSOPHY AND GOALS - ATHLETIC PROGRAM
Participation in a variety of athletic activities is a valuable and vital part of public education. We believe that athletic experiences should develop our student/athletes physically, mentally, socially, and emotionally; they provide an opportunity for individual participants to develop responsibility, self-reliance, self-esteem, and heightened cultural and emotional awareness. The success of our athletic teams is measured not only by how well-coaches student/athletes performing up to their potential, but also by the realization of sportsmanship and leadership goals. The Board of Education takes pride in the supporting of an athletic program which continuously reinforces the values of good sportsmanship and good mental health, as well as, self-discipline, personal commitment, team pride, enthusiasm, loyalty, and school spirit.
We believe that coaching of the highest quality is integral to the success of the program. The coach’s primary role is that of teacher who is knowledgeable of the sport, who develops and
inspired loyalty in the student/athletes, who treats the student/athletes with intelligence and sensitivity and who is a role model for these student/athletes. The athletic program as a whole should be conducted in accordance with Board of Education goals and policies.
We also believe that participation in athletics involves responsibility as well as reward for all those in the program: athletes, parents, coaches, and administrators. Participation in the athletic program carries with it responsibilities to the school, to the sport, to the student body, to the community, and to the student /athletes themselves. The athletic program provides student athletes with experience and training that develops a lifetime set of values.
The Cherry Hill Public Schools Athletic Program establishes the following goals:
1. To enhance self-esteem in student athletes.
