Athletic Recognition Night 2013
The Athletic Recognition Night is scheduled for Thursday, May 30th at 6:30pm in Chapman Arena.
The program will include season summaries by Mr. Stewart, with emphasis on team accomplishments and individual accomplishments by students and coaches. Stronger emphasis on varsity sports and senior athletes will take up the majority of the sports summaries. While the summaries will only briefly reflect on junior varsity and freshman athletes, they are welcome to attend.
The dress code for the evening will be our school dress code, without the sport coat. The event will be catered by Risoldi’s Catering. We ask your indulgence not to help yourself to "seconds" until everyone has eaten. Mr. Stewart will prompt the "seconds" when appropriate.
If you intend to come to the sports awards night, please plan to stay for the entire evening. Please do not leave after your sport has been recognized. We appreciate your courtesy in advance.
The cost to attend the Sports Awards Ceremony is $20 per person.
Please complete one of the forms below and return it to Mr. Stewart with the payment by no later than May 17.

Updated Athletic Player Contract - Social Media Policy
The Athletic Player Contract has been amended effective immediately. The new contract is located under the "Sports Forms" tab on the left. The new policy reads:
Student athletes are not to use any form of social media to be critical of teammates, coaches, game officials, school administrators, opponents, opposing schools or any other personnel involved in the athletic program. Violations of this policy will result in discipline action with the Dean of Discipline and may result in suspension or removal from a team.
Various intramural sporting and fitness opportunities are available for student participation. Interscholastic athletes are not allowed to participate in intramural activities. Please note that before beginning his participation in a particular interscholastic sport, a student must provide the completed and signed PIAA CIPPE prior to each athletic season's first legal practice date per PIAA Rules.
Holy Ghost Prep offers the following interscholastic sports:
Eligibility for Interscholastic Athletics and Activities
In order to be eligible for an interscholastic activity or sport, a student must pass six full-credit subjects each week during a grading period. Failure to meet these standards means that a student may be ineligible to participate in an extracurricular activity. Each student is reviewed for eligibility regularly. A student at each marking period must pass all full-credit courses and have a Grade Point Average of 2.0. Failure to achieve these criteria means that a student will lose his eligibility for a period of time determined by the Athletic Director and Principal.
If a student is absent from school, he may not participate in any school-related activity that day, even as a spectator, without being considered truant. To participate in an activity, a student must be in school by 10:00 a.m. the day of the activity. Excused absences may be exceptions.
Supervision of Athletics and Activities
It has become a necessity to formalize and enforce policies restricting unsupervised activity on campus even as we emphasize the freedom that we expect our students to enjoy in a responsible way. Should your son experience an unexpected injury, we need to have a staff member who is directly responsible for your son's appropriate care.
To this end, please note that only students under the direct supervision of a staff member may stay after school. Supervised study is available in the library from dismissal until 4:45 p.m. From 4:45 p.m. until late bus pickup at 5:00 p.m., students are to wait in the Firebird Fieldhouse Main Lobby Area for their transportation home. With the exception of the library, the academic buildings close at 4:00 p.m. No one may be on campus after 5:00 p.m. who is not under the direct supervision of a staff member. No one may wait at school for activities that begin beyond 5:00 p.m. The campus may not be used for athletic "pickup" games of any kind or any other sports activity not under the direct supervision of a staff member.
Once a student has finished an activity, he must either get transportation off campus or report to the library if prior to 4:45 p.m., or the Firebird Fieldhouse Main Lobby if between 4:30 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. Students remaining on campus beyond 5:00 p.m. must be under the direct supervision of a staff member or they risk disciplinary action.
