Eligibility Sports Season

For high school, a full-time student earns academic eligibility to participate in extracurricular activities by maintaining a 2.0 grade-point average (GPA), calculated using credit or non-credit courses, with no more than one failing grade for the marking period which governs eligibility for that activity.

WINTER-based on 1st Quarter, and SPRING-based on 2nd Quarter grades.

Update-Athletics Participation

In an effort to ensure the safety and health of students while participating in school-sponsored winter athletics practices and competitions, HCPSS will require all student-athletes in grades 9–12 to provide proof of vaccination or undergo weekly testing in order to participate. This requirement will begin with the start of winter athletics practices during the 2021–2022 school year.

Parents/guardians may provide proof of vaccination by one of the following ways:

Upload proof of vaccination documentation through HCPSS Connect
Email proof of vaccination documentation to the Athletics and Activities Manager (AAM) at their child’s school
Drop off a paper copy of proof of vaccination to the AAM at their child’s school

Proof of vaccination documentation may consist of a scan or image of the vaccine card that was provided by the health organization that administered the vaccine, or documentation received from ImmuNet - the State’s immunization information system.

Fully vaccinated students who wish to participate in winter athletics (including Allied Sports, and student team managers) and do not wish to undergo weekly testing should provide vaccine verification no later than Thursday, November 11, 2021. Otherwise, testing for all participating student-athletes who have not confirmed vaccine verification will begin on Friday, November 12, 2021 prior to the start of practice on Monday, November 15, 2021. Student-athletes will require parent permission to undergo the testing through the Maryland Department of Health contractor who will conduct the weekly testing for HCPSS. A permission form will be sent by your school’s AAM.

Additionally, all paid and volunteer coaches for winter athletics must provide proof of vaccination or undergo weekly testing. Vaccine verification and testing will not be required for spectators.

FAQ

 

1.  Do we need to turn in all paperwork or complete online registration before an athlete is allowed to tryout?  Yes

2.  How long are tryouts?  Student athletes are given 3 days from the scheduled start date for tryouts

3.  When do practices begin after tryouts?  Regular Practices begin immediately after rosters are finalized at the end of tryout period.

4.  How long is the Impact Test (Concussion Baseline) good for?  The Impact test baseline is good for 2 years.

5.  What is the roster size for _______ ?  Each team roster is determined by the coaching staff.

6.  How many courses do I need to be registered for my Senior year to be eligible to participate?

HCPSS requires "One on campus" course

7.  Why do we have to begin on a particular date (i.e. August 11 for Fall, November 15 for Winter, and March 1 for Spring)? 

The MPSSAA establishes start dates for all sports in MD  

A member MPSSAA school (includes athletes) may not participate in a regularly scheduled game until at least 20 calendar days have elapsed after and including the first day of practice.  Golf is the only exception.

This is why we are required to begin on August 11th so we have enough days (including the 3 Heat Acclimation days) of practice before the 1st play date which happens to be Friday September 3, 2021.

Issues could arise if we don't allow enough time for proper Heat Acclimation and/or preparation of athletes.

Athletic Rules of Conduct

At all Howard County athletic events, we strive to provide a pleasant and safe environment for all spectators and participants. We ask fans to refrain from:

  • Intimidating or harassing the players, coaches, officials, or fans
  • Using profanity
  • Throwing objects
  • Entering the playing area
  • Loitering in the hallways or on the grounds
  • Those who fail to abide by the Rules of Conduct will be asked to leave the contest, and could result in a trespass letter banning the spectator from future athletic events at the school.

Admission is a privilege to observe a contest, not a license to display insensitive or offensive behavior. Enjoy the event! Be a fan, not a fanatic!

Guidelines for Parent/Coach Communication

Parent/Coach Relationship:

By establishing an understanding of each position, we are better able to accept the actions of the other and provide greater benefits to our children. As parents, when your children become involved in our program, you have a right to understand what expectations are placed on your child. This begins with clear communication from the coach of your child’s program.

Communication you should expect from your child’s coach:

1. Philosophy of the coach.
2. Expectations the coach has for your child as well as all the players of the squad.
3. Locations and times of all practices and contests.
4. Team requirements, i.e. fees, special equipment, off-season conditioning.
5. Procedure should your child be injured during participation.
6. Discipline that result in the denial of your child’s participation. 

Communication coaches expect from parents:

1. Concerns expressed directly to coach.
2. Notification of any schedule conflicts well in advance.
3. Specific concern in regard to a coach’s philosophy and/or expectations.

As your children become involved in programs at Glenelg, they will experience some of the most rewarding moments of their lives. It is important to understand that there also may be times when things do not go the way you or your child wishes. At these times, discussion with the coach is encouraged.

Appropriate concerns to discuss with coaches:

1. The treatment of your child, mentally or physically.
2. Ways to help your child improve.
3. Concerns about your child’s behavior.

It is very difficult to accept your child not playing as much as you may want. However, playing time is earned in the estimation of the coaches and is not an entitlement. Coaches are professionals and they make judgment decisions based on what they believe to be the best for all students involved. As you have read from the list above, certain things can be and should be discussed with the coach.

Issues not appropriate to discuss with coaches:

1. Playing time

2. Team strategy

3. Play calling

4. Other student-athletes

There are situations that may require a conference between the coach and the parent. It is important that both parties involved have a clear understanding of the others’ position. When these conferences are necessary, the following procedure should be followed to help promote a resolution to the issue of concern.

Procedures to follow to discuss a concern with a coach:

1. Wait 24 hours before you make initial contact with the coach.
2. After you have waited 24 hours call or email the coach to set-up an appointment.
3. If the coach cannot be reached, email/call Dan Sageman, the Athletics and Activities Manager, and a meeting will be arranged for you.

Please do not attempt to confront a coach before or after a contest or practice. These can be emotional times for both the parent and the coach. Meetings of this nature do not promote resolution. This is why waiting 24 hours before the initial contact with the coach is such a crucial step in the resolution process.

Parents are encouraged to discuss issues and problems with the Athletics and Activities Manager. However, if a parent has specific complaint regarding a coach, then the coach must have the opportunity to be present to meet with the parent.

Academic Eligibility

A full-time high school student earns academic eligibility to participate in extracurricular activities by maintaining a 2.0 grade-point average (GPA), calculated using credit or non-credit courses, with no more than one failing grade for the marking period which governs eligibility for that activity.
