GRIZZLY FOOTBALL PLAYER
POLICY MANUAL
I.
IN SEASON:
1. Commitment: Everyone is counting on you. Communicate any problems
with your position coach or the head coach. Failure to do so will only hurt
your chance to be understood and develop into your potential. Once you
start the season we expect everyone to finish. United we will stand, while
divided we fall. There are certain family or health related issues that may
force you to leave the program for an indefinite amount of time. Make the
decision not to play football either before of after the season.
2. Punctuality: Be on time for all meetings and practices. Contact the head
coach personally if you have a conflict that will prevent you from being on
time. It is expected that you schedule appointments during times outside of
meeting or practice. Prior approval of any conflict is appreciated.
3. Participation: As a Varsity sport we compete at the highest level of
interscholastic activities. Our goal is to win with honor. We will play the
best players at the positions they are able to help the team. Players who are
unexcused from practice or tardy will lose starting opportunities or see
playing time noticeably diminished. A player will earn a Varsity letter if
he participates in 50% of the quarters available. The exception being a
senior who has participated in football for four years. The coaching staff
can use discretion on injuries or other special circumstances.
4. Know your role: Each player has a role on this team that is significant to
the team’s success. You must understand your role and fulfill your role to
the best of your abilities. Keep in mind your role could change from week
to week due to injuries or unknown reasons. If you’re not sure of your
role, ask your coach.
5. Weight Training: You will be required to get a minimum of two
lifts/week in order to play that week. Your second lift must be completed
before Thursday’s practice.
6. Discipline: Obey the AHS student Code of Conduct and Student Athletic
Code. In season, minor violations will be enforced after practice with the
“spin board”. Major violations will be dealt with by the head coach on an
individual basis.
• Live Clean: No tobacco, alcohol, or drugs.
• Stealing from your teammates will result in immediate dismissal.
• Any arrest by the police will result in suspension and possible
dismissal from the team.

7. Academics are a priority: You must pass five classes prior to your
season of competition in order to be OSAA eligible. During the season
you must have at least five C’s and no F’s in order to participate in
competition. Student Athletes at risk will work with Stephanie Santos and
Alison French to improve their academic standing. Eligibility during the
season will be established on a weekly basis. Grades will be checked on
Friday of each week. Students at risk have until Monday to improve their
grades. Go to class and make an effort!
8. Media/Reporters: They can help promote our program, however they
have a job to do and will report what they see or hear. Keep in mind the
following guidelines.
• No one is to talk to a reporter without prior knowledge of the head
coach.
• Never be critical of your opponent. Give them credit.
• Do not criticize coaches or players on our team.
• Be humble when we have success. Be complimentary to your
teammates.
• Never compare coaches or players on our team.
• Never discuss strategy or plans.
9. Laundry: You are responsible for your uniform. Take pride in how you
look. Wash you game gear each week.
10. Team Meetings: Be on time. Hats are off. Feet on the ground. Cell
phones off. Give who ever is speaking your undivided attention.
11. Team Video: Video is one the greatest teaching tools we have as we try
to improve and prepare for an opponent. Everyone is required to attend
Saturday video sessions to review the previous game. We will meet at
lunch on red days and at 3pm on white days in order to watch opponent
video or practice video. These sessions are highly recommended but not
required if a student has a legitimate reason to miss.
12. Pre Game Meals: A long standing tradition at AHS, all students will
participate in the pregame meal program. Cost this year will be $25 up
front or $7 deposit and $3 per meal (6 games). Should you need assistance
with this program please contact Coach Hall. Please turn in upfront money
to the Athletic Office.
13. Spirit Pack: In order to look uniform and first class in our practice and
travel, we have provided spirit packs to be purchased. Price will vary
based on need. Scholarships are available.

14. College Bound Athletes: Anyone aspiring to go to college, weather they
participate in sports or not, must take the SAT or ACT. NCAA initial
eligibility is based on a sliding scale of test score and GPA of 14 core
classes. All recruiting contacts need to be communicated with Coach Hall.
Test dates in December could conflict with playoff games.
15. Injuries: Injuries are a part of sports and football is no different than
many sports. As young athletes knowing the difference between pain and
injury in important. Soreness is very common during fall camp and after
competition. We do our best to get you in the best possible shape in order
to enhance your recovery. All injuries and illnesses should be check and
cleared with the athletic trainer first and then with a coach if the trainer is
not available. A decision regarding playing after an injury is in the hands
of the athletic trainer or medical team. When serious injuries occur, we
recommend you follow our team protocol in order to get the
student/athlete evaluated and diagnosed as quickly as possible. A
rehabilitation program will be prescribed in order to allow the athlete to
safely return to competition. If your insurance will not cover members of
our medical staff, please notify the coaching staff if and when the situation
comes up.
OFF SEASON
1. Participation: It is highly recommended for you to participate in
other sports during the winter and spring. There is no replacement
for training and competing at a high level.
2. Weight Training: If you are not involved in a winter or spring
sport it is highly recommended that you participate in the off
season strength and conditioning program.
3. Goal Setting: Every player is required to meet with the head coach
during to spring to review and set goals for the upcoming season.
4. Senior Leadership Development: Once a month, starting second
semester all senior players will meet to discuss topics related to
leadership and the football program as a whole.

SUMMER
1. Commitment: Summers can be very difficult when you are a
multi-sport athlete. Communication is critical as we try to
accommodate complex schedules. We will monitor attendance
throughout the summer and recognize those players who have
demonstrated the highest level of dedication. These players will get
first come opportunities in the locker room and waivers for
conditioning tests in August. Keep in mind the following:
a. Weight Training is necessary to prevent injuries, increase
muscle mass, and develop self confidence.
b. Evening Passing League is critical to develop timing and
execution in the passing game and pass defense.
c. Summer Camp is mandatory (unless family emergency). We
need this opportunity for team building and technique
development.
