Athletes are high profile students and should take no actions that may cause embarrassment or dishonor to themselves, their teammates, coaches, parents or Ridge View High School. Any matter that arises in or out of school which does so will be dealt with in a manner which will be outlined to all athletes and their parents by the athletic department. The athletic handbook can be found on the school website under Athletics. An athlete will not be allowed to drop a sport to begin practice with another sport. Only coaches can excuse an athlete from practice.
