LAKE LINDEN-HUBBELL HIGH SCHOOL POLICIES GOVERNING THE ATHLETIC PROGRAM
Section 1 - Policies directly related to the coaching staff. Section 2 - Policies directly related to the student participation. SECTION 1
The objectives of competitive athletics at Lake Linden-Hubbell High School must parallel those of education in general. The emphasis must first and last be on education. The student must always be the primary concern and the best safeguard in this direction is the educated and dedicated leadership. Athletics should be kept within the framework of the total school program. A. Participation
1. One of the primary goals of athletics must be general participation by the student body. 2. Athletics should develop your ability to cooperate with a group. They include organizing, planning,
listening, sharing, flexibility, and leadership. Examples are:
a. actively participate on a team and know team rules. b. know the team members as individuals. c. express ideas to other team members. d. be sensitive to the team members' ideas and views. e. be willing to compromise if necessary to best accomplish the goals of the team. f.
be a leader or follower to best accomplish the goals of the team.
3. It is desired that there be a fairly high percentage of participation from the general student body in athletic programs.
1. Winning is important and should be strived for, especially at the varsity level. But it is significant to note
that winning is not the primary reason for an athletic program.
1. Although consistently striving to win, it is important that we at least be competitive with the opposition in
our many athletic engagements. There is no shame in losing a hard fought contest, but never being "in the ball game" game after game is something else.
1. Athletics should at all times be intended to provide enjoyment for our participants.
2. Although the pressure to consistently win is ever present from fans and parents alike, it should be
remembered that our kids who participate in athletics expect to have fun doing so. It should be kept in mind that kids can and often do have fun even though they lose the game.
1. Although the outcome of many of our athletic contests will not always have the desired endings, it should
be remembered that our athletes should still display good sportsmanship before, during, and after the contest. "Poor Losers" set a poor example. Likewise "Poor Winners" appear even worse. We should be proud but humble in victory.
2. We are not only responsible for the sportsmanship attitude of our athletes, but we are also responsible for the action of
our fans as wel. Every effort should be made to control our fans at al athletic contests. Removal from the game may at
times be a necessity and must be enforced.
1. Since athletic programs and coaches, in particular, are constantly under fire from fans and other
disgruntled people, there must be strong unity between coaches and administrators. Administrators are generally expected not to succumb to fan criticism and pressure applied to coaches. Administrators should usual y be in the coach's corner. Realistically, however, situations do arise where coaches must be reprimanded for their actions. Such action should be consistent with the general philosophy of the athletic program.
G. Level of Sport and Individual Participation
1. It is desired that the emphasis on winning be considerable less at the lower levels of participation.
Consequently, equal participation should be stressed at the elementary level. At the junior high level each team member should play about one quarter based on the philosophy of "equal time for equal effort". By this we mean that the coach make an effort to give substitute players as much playing time as possible, yet also make an effort to win the game. At the freshmen level, the same philosophy as the junior high should be followed. At the junior varsity level winning is more important. The coach should make every effort, where possible, to get each player in the game. The more playing time a player receives, the more the coach is contributing to the development of those who are front line players. At the varsity level, there are no playing time requirements. But it is understood that the coach should make every effort possible to play all athletes when the conditions of the game allow for it. The main emphasis at the varsity level is to be competitive with other teams and to win. It is also significant to mention that the coach at any level reserves the right to sit a player down for disciplinary reasons/unexcused-missed practices.

It is the overwhelming opinion of health educators that athletes perform best when they follow intelligent training rules, which include restrictions on the use of tobacco, alcohol, and illegal drugs. Medical research clearly substantiates the fact that continued use of tobacco, alcohol and illegal drugs produces harmful effects on the human organism. The coaching staff of the Lake Linden-Hubbell Public Schools, concerned with the health habits of the students of this community, is convinced that athletics and the use of tobacco, alcohol and illegal drugs are not compatible. Because of these reasons, rigid training regulations are a requirement for team membership and event participation.
It is the intent of the Coaching Staff, Administration and Board of Education to provide participation requirements that every student must meet to allow for their participation in athletics. Furthermore, it is the District's intent to emphasize the importance of good health and abstinence from the use and possession of all tobacco, alcohol products, NCAA banned-drugs (see list below), and illegal drugs. Students who violate these policies shall be removed from athletic practices and competitions according to the restrictive policies set forth in the District's Athletic Policies.
A. Drinking and/or possession of alcoholic beverages, smoking, using and/or possession of tobacco in any
form and the use and/or possession of illegal drugs/NCAA banned-drugs are forbidden.
The NCAA list of banned-drug classes is subject to changes by the NCAA Executive Committee. Contact NCAA education servicesorg/health-safety for the current list. The term "related compounds" comprises substances that are included in the class by their pharmacological action and/or chemical structure. No substance belonging to the prohibited class may be used, regardless of whether it is specifically listed as an example. Many nutritional/dietary supplements contain NCAA banned substances. In addition, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (PDA) does not strictly regulate the supplement industry; therefore purity and safety of nutritional dietary supplements cannot be guaranteed. Impure supplements may lead to a positive NCAA drug test. The use of supplements is at the student-athlete's own risk. Student-athletes should contact their institution's team physician or athletic trainer for further information. Bylaw 31.2.3. Banned Drugs. The following is a list of banned-drug classes, with examples of substances under each class:
(a) Stimulants: amiphenazole and related compounds.
(b) Anabolic Agents: anabolic steroids androstenediol and related compounds
gestrinone mesterolone other anabolic agents methandienone
(c) Substances Barred for Specific Sports: Rifle: alcohol and related compounds
(d) Diuretics: acetazolamide
trichlormelhiazide and related compounds (e) Street Drugs: heroin
(f) Peptide Hormones and Analogues: corticotrophtn (ACTH) human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG) luleinizing hormone (LH) growth hormone (HGH, somatotrophin) insulin like growth hormone (IGF-1) All the respective releasing factors of the above-mentioned substances also are banned: erythropoietin (EPO)
darbepoelin (g) Definitions of positive depends on the following:
1 for caffeine - if the concentration in urine exceeds 15 microg rams/ml.
2 for testosterone - if the administration of testosterone or use of any other manipulation has the result of increasing the ratio of the total concentration of testosterone to that of epitestosterone in the urine to greater than 6:1, unless there is evidence that this ratio is due to a physiological or palhological condition. 3 for marijuana and THC - if the concentration in the urine of THC metabolite exceeds 15 nanograrns/ml.
188.8.131.52.1 Drugs and Procedures Subject to Restrictions. The use of the following drugs and/or procedures is subject to certain restrictions and may or may not be permissible, depending on limitations expressed in these guidelines and/or quantities of these substances used; (Revised: 8/15/89) (a) Blood Doping. The practice of blood doping (the intravenous injection of whole blood, packed red blood cells or blood substitutes) is prohibited, and any evidence confirming use will be cause for action consistent with that taken for a positive drug test. (Revised: 8/15/89, 5/4/92) (b) Local Anesthetics. The Executive Committee will permit the limited use of local anesthetics under the following conditions:
(1) That procaine, xylocaine, carbocaine or any other local anesthetic may be used, but not cocaine;
(2) That only local or topical injections can be used (i.e. intravenous injections are not permitted);
(3) That use is medically justified only when permitting the athlete to continue the competition
without potential risk to his or her health.
(c) Manipulation of Urine Samples. The executive Committee bans the use of substances and methods that alter the integrity and/or validity of urine samples provided during NCAA drug testing. Examples of banned methods are catheterization, urine substitution and/or tampering or modification of renal excretion by the use of diuretics, probenecid, bromantan or related compounds, and epitestosterone administration.

Drug screening for select nonbanned substances may be conducted for nonpunitive purposes. (Revised: 8/15/89)
B. Any person who uses or knowingly possesses an androgenic anabolic steroid violates Michigan law
and is punishable by imprisonment & fine.
C. Misdemeanors or felonies other than traffic violations will also be cause for suspension.
D. The above mentioned regulations will cover all students from the time they first report for any sport
sponsored by Lake Linden-Hubbell High School until they have completed graduation in their senior year.
E. Any student caught breaking training rules during the "sport season", the "off season", or during the
"summer vacation" will be subject to the following penalties:
1. First offense: The penalty for the first violation will be 10% of the season following the
2. Second offense: The penalty for the second violation within one calendar year of the first
violation will be 25% of the season following this second determined violation.
3. Third offense: The penalty for a third violation within a twelve month period of the first violation
will be suspension from all extracurricular activities for a twelve month period from the date the third violation penalty is imposed.
4. Formulas will be applied in the same manner for the varsity, junior varsity, freshmen, and junior
high teams. Percentages will be rounded off to the nearest whole number. Example: Football has a nine game regular season schedule so 9 x 10% =.9 = 1 game suspension. 1.4 or below will constitute a one game contest or tournament date penalty. 1.5 or above would constitute a two game, contest, or tournament date penalty. All first violation penalties will be a minimum of one game suspension.
5. Game suspensions will carry into the next sport season or the next school year if the violation
occurs in a spring sport and the penalty is not completed.
6. In addition to the suspensions, after each violation the student athlete will be required to attend
a minimum of one counseling session. Additional sessions with a prescribed professional counselor may be recommended as deemed necessary, before reinstatement of the athlete.
7. If an athlete participated in a sport with the intention of satisfying their suspension obligation
and then quits prior to the end of the season, the fulfillment of the suspension will be nullified. Example: If a student participates in a spring sport to satisfy a suspension and quits after fulfilling their suspension obligation to be eligible for a fall sport. Administrative discretion will be used in the determination of the final decision.
8. In summation, in order for an athlete to fulfill suspension obligations by participating in an
athletic season, that athlete must participate in all obligation including practices and interscholastic competitions during that entire sport season.
F. The rules shall be sent to the parents with and agreement to be signed by parents and students that
they have read the rules and agree to support them. This signed statement shall be returned before the student will be allowed to participate in sports.

personnel, officers of the law, or any other source the administration feels warrants an investigation.
B. The person reporting the violation must have witnessed the violation unless the report is of an arrest
having been made or citation having been issued in which case the administration shall be responsible to investigate.
