									          DRAKES CREEK MIDDLE SCHOOL FOOTBALL

       To all parents of prospective first year and returning football players.
Summer break is ending and before we know it school will be starting again.
With the beginning of school comes the beginning football.
       Attached to this letter will be the schedule of summer sessions before
school starts as well as a physical packet. As it says on the sheet with
summer instructions the players cannot play or practice without a physical.
They will be sent home if they do not have this completed.
       I understand that things happen and we are rushed, but these forms
need to be filled out completely and brought to the school on the first day of
practice. The first meeting between the coaching staff and the parents will
be on TBA. If you cannot attend this meeting there will be packets in the
front office of Drakes Creek Middle School for you to pick up at your
convenience.


    AGAIN, STUDENTS CANNOT PLAY OR PRACTICE IF THEY
DO NOT HAVE THESE FORMS FILLED OUT COMPLETELY AND
CORRECTLY.

   GATOR FOOTBALL CONDITIONS AND CONSEQUENCES

PRACTICE
ALL PLAYERS ARE EXPECTED TO ATTEND EVERY PRACTICE IF
YOU ARE AT SCHOOL. IF YOU ARE AT SCHOOL, AND ARE NOT
GOING TO BE AT PRACTICE, YOU SHOULD GO TO ROOM 204 AND
TELL COACH HARTFORD. SENDING WORD THROUGH SOMEONE
ELSE IS NOT ACCEPTABLE. AN EXCUSED MISSED PRACTICE
INVOLVES SICKNESS, SICKNESS OR DEATH IN FAMILY, EXTRA
SCHOOL WORK, TUTORING OR DOCTOR’S APPOINTMENT. IF
THERE IS A DOCTOR’S APPOINTMENT A DOCTOR’S NOTE IS
PREFERED. PLAYERS THAT ARE INJURED ARE EXPECTED TO BE
AT PRACTICE AND BE ATTENTIVE SO THEY WILL NOT BE LOST
AND STILL HAVE A CHANCE TO PLAY WHEN THEY ARE NO
LONGER INJURED.

    1ST UNEXCUSED MISSED PRACTICE—EXTRA
    CONDITIONING

    2ND UNEXCUSED MISSED PRACTICE—EXTRA
    CONDITIONING+ 1 GAME SUSPENSION

    3RD UNEXCUSED MISSED PRACTICE—DISMISSAL FROM
    TEAM


SCHOOL BEHAVIOR AND DISCIPLINE

    EACH WRITE UP WILL RESULT IN EXTRA CONDITIONING

    4 WRITE-UPS=TIP=1 GAME SUSPENSION-PLAYER REQUIRED
    TO COME TO GAME WITH JERSEY ON, AND SIT IN STANDS.

    8 WRITE-UPS 2ND TIP= ALC=ONE GAME SUSPENSION AND
    APPROPRIATE DISCIPLINE

    2ND ALC—DISMISSAL FROM TEAM
    SUSPENSION=2 GAME SUSPENSION+ APPROPRIATE
    DISCIPLINE DURING THE OFF TIME.

    FIGHTING--- AUTOMATIC DISMISAL FROM TEAM.
    IF COACHES ARE NOT PRESENT FOR THE FIGHT BOTH
    SIDES WILL BE HEARD AS WELL AS WITNESSES. THE
    COACHES DECISSION IS THE FINAL DECISSION. SINCE IT IS
    A FOOTBALL ISSUE THE COACHES DEAL THE
    APPROPRIATE PUNISHMENT.
    IN THE END FIGHTING IS FIGHTING. PLAYERS INVOLVED
    WILL BE DELT SOME TYPE OF PUNISHMENT IF NOT
    DISMISSAL FROM TEAM.


ACADEMICS
ALL PLAYERS ARE ENCOURAGED AND ARE
EXPECTED/REQUIRED TO MAINTAIN A MINIMUM OF “C”
AVERAGE IN YOUR SIX CORE CLASSES. THE CLASSES ARE:
RELATED ARTS, MATH, SCIENCE, LANGUAGE ARTS, READING
AND HISTORY. ANYONE NOT HAVING A “C” AVERAGE WILL
NOT BE ALLOWED TO PARTICIPATE UNTIL YOUR GRADES ARE
UP TO PAR. IF GRADES ARE NOT SUCH THEN THE STUDENT
WILL NOT ATTEND PRACTICE BUT WILL EITHER BE TUTORED
OR AT HOME LEARNING WHAT IS NEEDED TO PASS.

    CLEATS—LOST EQUIPMENT WILL HAVE TO BE FOUND OR
    PAID FOR BY PARENTS. IT IS THE PLAYER’S

    RESPONSIBILITY TO TAKE CARE OF AND KEEP UP WITH IT.


  IN CLOSING, PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS NOT YOUTH

LEAGUE FOOTBALL. MIDDLE SCHOOL FOOTBALL IS DESIGNED

TO GET PLAYERS READY FOR THE HIGH SCHOOL LEVEL OF

COMPETITION. IF THE PLAYERS DO NOT GIVE FORTH THE

EFFORT, PLAYING TIME WILL NOT BE REWARDED. MIDDLE

SCHOOL FOOTBALL IS NOT DESIGNED TO BE A “EVERYONE

GETS TO PLAY” PROGRAM. THIS IS WHERE PLAYING TIME IS

EARNED AND THIS WILL CONTINUE THROUGHOUT THEIR

YEARS AS PLAYERS IN ANY SPORT IN WHICH THEY

PARTICIPATE FROM THIS POINT ON. PLAYERS WILL PLAY

ACCORDING TO SKILL LEVEL, NOT BY WHAT AND WHERE THEY

HAVE PLAYED IN THE PAST. I HOPE THIS MAKES SENSE. WE ARE

NOT HERE TO HURT FEELINGS, BUT WE ARE ALSO NOT HERE TO

“GIVE” PLAYING TIME IF THERE IS NOTHING GIVEN.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME AND YOUR CHILDREN’S

DEDICATION.

COACH SAM HARTFORD AND THE GATOR COACHING STAFF
